Under the AAA rules, you can count the actual time you spend studying hour for hour as non-organized CE hours.

More questions

I believe I read somewhere that I could theoretically get my hours done for both 2017 and 2018 right now if I put 60 hours in. Does it work going the other way too?

I just got my ACAS in September, so need to get 30 hours by the end of this year, but am wondering if I can use hours from studying for my Fall 2016 exam for my 30 hours for year-end 2017.

Going further on the point above, I took exam 6 in the Fall of 2016, and had to retake it in Spring 2017. If I can use Fall 2016 exam hours, can I still use them knowing that I took the same exam both sittings?

Although I took Exam 8 this fall, I'm not sure if I am going to even earn an "effective attempt". (it wasn't a good past few months...)

Cheers!

Re-read the previous post: under AAA rules you can count all study hours, and there's nothing about "effective" attempts. So you almost certainly have your 30 hours.

But you also need to satisfy the requirements for professionalism (3) and organized (6) hours.

I thought getting ACAS meant you satisfied the requirements during the year in which you got the credential?

Nope. not automatically. It's pretty hard to get ACAS without doing 30 hours of CE and 3 hours of professionalism, but it would be possible to not have any organized CE, which you need.

If this is what I have on my profile, wouldn't I be good to go?


I guess I should read this PDF this morning... http://www.casact.org/cms/files/CAS_CE_Policy.pdf

Grape, you still need to attest for 2018.
