Continuing Professional Development

The SOA Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Requirement was effective on Jan. 1, 2009 and members must report compliance annually as of each Dec. 31. Members must meet the Basic Requirement provisions of Section B or one of the Alternative Compliance provisions of Section C of the SOA CPD Requirement in order to be deemed compliant.

The SOA believes that sessions at this meeting may be suitable for filling continuing education requirements. Ultimately, it is an actuary’s responsibility to make a reasonable, good-faith determination of what continuing education opportunities will enhance his or her ability to practice in a desired field.

Below is the maximum number of credits you could receive, based upon your session attendance.

  • 9.30 credits may be applied toward the “Qualification Standards for Actuaries Issuing Statements of Actuarial Opinion” and the “SOA Continuing Professional Development Requirement.”
  • 7.75 credits may be applied toward “The Canadian Institute of Actuaries Qualification Standard – Continuing Professional Development”
