Academy Professionalism Resources
The Academy is home to the actuarial profession’s fundamental professionalism documents—the Code of Professional Conduct (the Code), the Qualification Standards for Actuaries Issuing Statements of Actuarial Opinion in the United States (USQS), and the Actuarial Standards of Practice (ASOPs). These tools are available so members can fulfill their responsibilities to their principals—and to the public—with the highest standards of professionalism.
Professionalism webinar recordings are available free to Academy members. Earn continuing education (CE) credits by listening to pre-recorded webinars. These credits can be counted toward the annual required three hours of continuing education on professionalism topics, as detailed in the U.S. Qualification Standards (Section 2.2).
