Practice Education Course (PEC)



The virtual PEC is staying!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 Practice Education Course (PEC) offerings  will be delivered virtually.

The CIA’s PEC will provide you with practical education on industry practices, professional standards, legislation, and taxation within the Canadian context.

At the virtual PEC, you will:

  • gain hands-on, practical knowledge of practice-specific course content through interactive online group workshops and seminars;
  • understand how Canadian professional standards affect actuarial work; and
  • network virtually with experts and peers in your field of practice.

Don’t miss the opportunity to fulfil a key FCIA requirement and earn valuable CPD.

The PEC will be offered virtually twice in 2021 in June and December.

December PEC: Wednesday, December 1–Friday, December 3. Registration will open June 30. Note that the group track will not be offered at this course.
