About the Program

We recommend our members complete a minimum of 20 hours of CE activities, including 2 hours in the content areas of Standards, Ethics, and Regulations (SER), each calendar year. Members can attest to completing the recommended credit minimums for the prior calendar year during the online renewal process occurring each spring.

CFA Institute Resources

We encourage members to record their continuing education activities and offer an online tracking resource as a benefit. Learn more about member benefits.

Partnerships in Education

We recognize our CFA Societies as providers of quality programming to members at the local level. We also partner with third-party organizations that meet our high standards in providing relevant educational products for our members.
