Changes to Life Insurance and A&S CE Credits in Alberta

In the past, Business Career College has offered financial services and insurance professionals in Alberta the ability to earn 15 continuing Education (CE) credits for Life Insurance and A&S by attending 2-day in-person classes. In early 2021, the Alberta Accreditation Committee revisited their standards for what constitutes good continuing education on both Life Insurance and A&S. In other words, courses offering continuing education in Life Insurance and A&S need to contain more specific content in order to be eligible for accreditation.  

The new requirements mean that it is now challenging to offer a 2-day course that covers all the necessary material that is needed for you to earn the 15 credits for both Life Insurance and A&S. Instead, Business Career College revised how we are doing our continuing education credits for these categories. We are now offering half-day CE credit sessions that are spread out over the year that will allow you to earn 3 ½ credits of either Life Insurance or A&S depending on the session. This is part of our Continuing Education Subscription (CE) program. 

Our CE program gives you access to our highly regarded podcast, half-day webinars, and online CE catalogue, with each providing credits that you can use towards meeting your annual CE requirements for not only Life Insurance and A&S, but also your CFP®, CLU®, or CHS™ designation. It provides an easy and convenient way to earn your annual CE credits. Subscriptions are available on a monthly or yearly basis, but a yearly subscription will give you complimentary registration into our 3 half-day webinars (the ones you need to attend to get your Life Insurance and/or A&S credits). 

Instructor Jason Watt also breaks down this new transition with Alberta Life Insurance and A&S Continuing Education credits in his CE Message video. 

Thanks to all our Alberta students for bearing with us in this adjustment, and we hope to see you attending our half-day webinars and listening to our podcast!
