Continuing Education Credits

Attendance at ICA 2014 may be recognized by the national actuarial or underwriting organization for Continuing Professional Development (CPD)/Continuing Education (CE). As the formal recognition of CPD depends on, among other things, the practice area and the experience of the individual, delegates are advised to discuss possible CPD/CE credits with the national organization to which they belong.

This activity may qualify for up to 30.75* CPD/CE credits (hours) for those delegates attending the full week whose national organization's CPD requirements recognize ICA 2014. For delegates attending the first half, the activity may qualify for up to 17.75* credits (hours). For delegates attending the second half, the activity may qualify for up to 16.75* credits (hours). (This presumes one hour of actual time equals one unit of CPD, excluding lunches and breaks. For some national CPD requirements [e.g. the American Academy's Qualification Standards], 50 minutes of actual time equal one unit of CE.) Participants should claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

*Attendance at all available Poster Presentations and Limited Attendance Sessions is also included in the calculation. Please check the ICA 2014 website for details.
