Recognizing Our Members’ Continuing Professional Development

Congratulations to Our Members

We applaud the hard work of our members who attest to participating in our Continuing Education (CE) Program. Their dedication demonstrates their commitment to the highest standards of competency and ethics and sets them apart from others in the investment profession.

How We Recognize Continuing Professional Development

When you renew your CFA Institute membership each year, you have the ability to attest to participating in the voluntary CE Program, earning 20 CE credits, including 2 credits in Standards, Ethics, and Regulations (SER), for the previous calendar year.

In recognition of your commitment to continuing professional development, we provide several items, including a digital badge for milestone members, that you can use to share your achievement.
