    What qualifies as a CE credit

    The Alberta Accreditation Committee, as delegated by the Minister, is in charge of reviewing and approving:

    • continuing education providers,
    • continuing education courses, and 
    • the hours and means of calculating the continuing education hours.

    The review and approval process is in place for every course or seminar that counts towards the required 15 credits. 

    All Alberta Insurance Council Continuing Education approved courses are listed here. Approved courses by the Insurance Training Center are listed under our registered name “ITC Education Inc”. 

     

    Record Keeping

    All CE records must be kept for 3 years following the expiry of the certificate term.  

    All agents and adjusters must prove they have completed 15 hours of approved CE courses and enter all approved courses under their profile when renewing their licence. 

    The Alberta Insurance Council conducts audits to ensure all requirements are met. In the event of an audit, agents and adjusters must provide records to the Minister upon request.
