Continuing Education Policy

Recording CE activities
The voluntary Continuing Education (CE) Program
is a framework for our members to identify educational activities that contribute to ongoing professional development. Our members can easily record and manage their activities using CFA Institute’s online tracking resource.
Participation in our CE Program is highly recommended. You can claim compliance with the CE program by completing 20 hours of qualified activities annually, two hours of which should cover Standards, Ethics and Regulation (SER)
. There are a number of ways to demonstrate compliance
for those who wish to share their participation in the CE program with (potential) employers, clients and regulators.
Under the CE Program, members get 1 CE point or credit for each hour of content. In order for your CE activities to qualify they must be documented and recorded in the CE tracking system. Learn here
