Practice Education Course (PEC)



PEC is going virtual!

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 offerings of PEC will be delivered virtually.

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

At 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 this year:

  • September 14–18, 2020  – The application period is now closed. 
  • December 7–11, 2020 – Note that the group track will not be offered at this course. Applications will be accepted from August 4 to October 9.

Please note, courses will be spread throughout the week with sessions taking approximately 2–3 hours per day.

French sessions will be available on an on-demand basis. You will be able to select your language preference during the application process. Most of the materials are provided in English and French.
