ABOUT US, WHERE IT STARTED


It all began when Roland, one of the CEI's founders, noticed how his friends (civil engineers) from all over the Philippines were asking him and looking for trusted seminar-provider company that would give them additional learnings in public project constructions and of course, certificates for their application for Project Engineer Accreditation.

However, the time that they will invest is a problem because usually, the seminars are rigorous and long and sometimes costly. Further, the lecturers in various seminars in construction are very hard to find. A civil engineer needs specific topics and Certificate of Training/Completion to be able to receive points for their PE accreditation. Without the points, they cannot handle/implement DPWH projects.

To solve the problem, Roland and Khristin built a simple platform that would provide much needed seminars that are first, timely and practical; and second, suitable to individuals who are very busy with their own work schedule.

On May 2020, during the first imposition of lockdowns, CE Institute Learning Center (CEILC), cei-ph.com was launched. From what started as a flexible online seminar for busy engineers, CEILC has become the #1 Asynchronous Learning platform, headed by a passionate team dedicated to helping professionals or students in construction industry to prepare/educate themselves, be accredited Project Engineers in DPWH projects, and earn Continuing Development Points (CPD) for their PRC renewal as Self-Directed Learning (Learn More).

We are a group of Civil Engineers and Geologist with specialization in Structural, Geotechnical Engineering, Project Management, Quality Control/Assurance and nspection, and Engineering Geology. We are experts in construction and quality control/assurance/inspections of roads, bridges, flood control structures and buildings as well as its project implementations/ maintenance inspections.

We are Special Lecturers in Field Engineer Courses, Materials Testing Technology Course, and other Trainings being conducted in various major cities in the Philippines.

Civil Engineer, Master Plumber, Geotechnical Engineer

Some of his famous detailed investigations include the Geotechnical and Structural assessment of collapsed Bridges caused by Earthquake (e.g. Bohol in 2015, Romblon in 2016, etc.), Pavement Evaluations of Manila North Road, Manila South Road, Mindoro Circumferential Road, Capiz-Aklan Road, and SLEX, and Detailed Investigation of the Structural Integrity of Fort Bonifacio Tenement in Taguig (2015-2016). Several road slips and building collapses (2019) in Regions IX and XII were also included in his detailed investigations.

Pavement Engineer

Engr. RDL is a DPWH-accredited Project Engineer I, Quality Assurance Unit Member, and a DTI-CPES Evaluator. He scored 85% in his Comprehensive Field Engineers Course Examination; 97% in Comprehensive Materials Testing Technology for Materials Engineers, and 99.50% in Constructors Performance Evaluation System (CPES) Examination.


He is a MSCE-Geotechnical Engineering graduate of UP Diliman last June 2017 and BSCE in 2012. He was an Associate Professor of Civil Engineering. He conducts seminars to various government agencies such as DPWH and its Regional Offices, Philippine Ports Authority (PPA), National Irrigation Administration (NIA), NAPOCOR, National Housing Authority (NHA), various LGUs of DILG, and many more.

Concrete Petrography

Engr. Khristin is a certified concrete petrographer. This photo shows here analyzing concrete structure as part of her expertise. Photo taken in Singapore last August 2019.


She scored 98% in Comprehensive Materials Testing Technology for Materials Engineers; and 99.00% in Constructors Performance Evaluation System (CPES) Examination.


Petrography is a branch of geology that is applied to concrete and concrete raw materials. This technique examines and evaluates the optical properties and microstructural characteristics of the materials. Petrographic analysis for concrete begins by accepting an aggregate for use in concrete (ASTM C295).

Geo. Bonn Allen M. Perias

Bonn is a licensed Geologist and our Special Lecturer for Engineering Geology and Site Investigation. A graduate of Mapua University and currently taking up his Master's Degree in Geology at the University of Philippines – Diliman.


Soil Investigation Specialist

He specializes in subsurface soil investigations for site suitability and characterization, as well as material sources exploration used in the design and construction of infrastructure projects.

Engineering Geologist

An experienced geologist utilizing the method of Concrete Petrography for the identification of the quality, internal components and deterioration such as microcracking, carbonation and Alkali-Silica Reaction (ASR) in concrete.


More informative and exciting lectures will be shared by our resident geologist in Subsurface Exploration, Material Sources Evaluation, Engineering Geological Assessments and Concrete Petrography.
