I feel the need also to point out, as it may not be obvious to anyone outside the AAA that for USQS purposes, 50 "clock-minutes" = 1 "CE hour." So we're really talking a total of twenty five "clock-hours" per year.

A UK regional actuarial society runs free CPD session where senior Actuaries give talks over a teleconference. Do you think these would be eligible for CPD credits? See link below to their website. There is one on Friday.

If the topic was somewhat relevant to my job, or to a job I hoped to move into in the future, and if I signed up expecting to learn something useful, I would have no qualms listed that as part of my continuing ed.

(rather to my surprise, the American Academy standard for "can you count it" is not "did I learn something useful", but "did I, in good faith, expect to learn something useful when I chose to attend this session.")
