Practice Education Course

What is the Practice Education Course (PEC)? 

At PEC, candidates will:

• Gain hands-on, practical knowledge of practice-specific course content through interactive group workshops and seminars;
• Understand how Canadian professional standards affect their work; and
• Network with other future actuaries and experts in their field of practice. 

The PEC is designed to provide candidates with practical education in the Canadian environment including industry practices, professional standards, legislation, and taxation. It is offered once a year in the spring.  

Sessions may include large and small group discussions, projects, assignments, and self-study. In addition, there will be general sessions covering topics applicable to all actuaries practising in Canada.
