As technology evolves, upgrading is the key! “If license is life; upgrading your license is lifer. Care not on your CPD, but on your professional well-being as well.”

Set with a theme: “Next Generation Leaders in Expanding Opportunities for Digital Economy,” the Institute of Electronics Engineers of the Philippines – United Arab Emirates Chapter recently held its 2nd Technical Seminar for this year at Fraser Suites, Sidra Tower, Dubai, UAE last 31st May 2019. The said event has once again ascertained the untiring support of more than 60 participants, composed of PECE, ECE, ECT, Associate members and non-members across the Emirates.

The course started with a usual Opening Remarks and Re-pledging of Oath led by the 2019 Governor and Chairman of the Board, Engr. Ma. Elisa S. Maglaque-Arcega, ECE. Not later after, resource speaker, Engr. Jason B. Quizon, PECE took the lead and begun his talk on the first topic, Introduction to Quality Management: ISO 9001:2015 Basic Requirements and Practical Applications. Evidently as the man standing in front, serious about imparting his knowledge did not fail to build connection to his audience. Questions raised and answered logically by Engr. Quizon.

One of the main highlights of this event is to give credits and express IECEP-UAE’s utmost congratulations to its members who successfully passed PECE license upgrade. They had their Oath Taking Ceremony conducted by Deputy Consul-General in Dubai, Hon. Renato N. Dueñas, Jr. right after completing the topic for morning session.

Lunch had been served and afternoon topic started to commence. Engr. Jean-Claude G. de Villeres, ECE, speaker for the second topic Introduction to Internet of the Things (IoT) had his very compassionate way of delivering his subject matter. Just like the topic itself, mutual understanding is a critical factor in an automated system. Thus being said, by means of interacting with his audience at certain point in time and considering like a student-teacher type of discussion, Engr. de Villeres surely had his goal accomplished.

The event ended with IECEP Updates, timely announcements and of course the most important reason why this kind of event is being conducted. Well, apart from having CPD points, skills acquired, building connections, seeing old companions and meeting new friends… one thing we might not yet realize is that being a professional does not only end by just acquiring a license rather it is the start of having that responsibility: responsibility of building one’s self reliability, professional well-being and self-respect.

More power to IECEP-UAE!

To God be all the glory in all we do!
