Precept 13 e-course is part of a series of four professional development e-courses designed to teach you the practical application of the SOA Code of Professional Conduct. It focuses on your obligations "when you have knowledge of an apparent, unresolved and material violation of the Code of Professional Conduct by another actuary."
You'll learn how your daily work can sometimes present challenges and how some situations don't appear as "black-and-white" as the Code of Professional Conduct and Qualification Standards might describe. This course shows you how to anticipate problems before they occur and how various precepts may impact a given situation. You'll also get a better understanding of the tools at your disposal to maintain professionalism at all times.
