During the Annual Board Meeting on September 3rd, the following was determined:
There is a need to set a standard fee for all CPE units.
The amount for the 10-12 week program is P15,000. This amount covers tuition and miscellaneous expenses for each of the CPE units: 1, 2, 3, and 4. Among the items it does not cover is food, lodging, and transportation expenses.
The reasons for this are as follows:
1. Previously, so many exceptions and inconsistencies were done with regard to the fees that even the supervisors were not sure of the actual costs.
2. The cost of running the CPE program in 2011 has so far been far higher than the receipts from students.
3. Scholarships were given when the money for the scholarships were not actually available.
With this in mind, the P15,000 fee for tuition and miscellaneous expenses will be consistently applied except where scholarship money is in hand, the trainee is seen to qualify, and the formal approval is given.
