As part of their continuing professional development (CPD) requirements, CIA members are required to complete 100 hours of combined structured and unstructured relevant experience over two calendar years. With numerous upcoming webcasts and professionalism workshops, members have several opportunities to earn credits towards those CPD requirements.

Upcoming Webcasts

CIA webcasts are an excellent opportunity for professional development and keeping informed about current issues and trends in the actuarial field.

During the first few months of 2016, the Institute will offer the following webcasts:

Professionalism Workshops

The CIA’s Professionalism Workshop is a 3/4-day session that provides an overview of professionalism issues and makes extensive use of the case study method. Topics covered include the following:

  • What is a professional;
  • The CIA structure;
  • The CIA's views on professionalism;
  • The CIA's discipline process; and
  • Malpractice and legal liability.

This workshop, held six times a year (in English and French), is a requirement to become an Associate of the CIA (ACIA) and for Property & Casualty candidates applying for Fellowship in the CIA unless they have attended the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) professionalism course offered in Canada.

This year’s workshop schedule is as follows:

  • February 25 (English) in Toronto;
  • March 4 (French) in Montréal;
  • April 27 (English) in Toronto;
  • September 2 (French) in Montréal;
  • October 5 (English) in Toronto; and
  • December 8 (English) in Toronto.

The workshop is very popular and fills up quickly, so if you are interested in taking it, make sure to register early. As of publication time, registration for the next English Professionalism Workshop on February 25 was closed, but you can contact Roxanne Vézina to add your name to the waiting list. Registration for the March 4 French Professionalism Workshop is still open. For information on the next English and French workshops, or visit the workshop registration page.
