A NEW DESIGNATION PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT CE REQUIREMENT GOES INTO EFFECT JANUARY 1, 2018!
At the Designation Recognition session held at the 2017 SILA National Education Conference, it was announced that SILA will be implementing a new SILA Designation Professional Development CE requirement for SILA Designation holders effective January 1, 2018. The purpose of the new Designation Professional Development program is to lend more creditability and significance to the value of holding a SILA Designation within the financial services industry.
The Designation CE requirement is 24 hours every two years, due 12/31 every odd year for designation holders with issue dates prior to January 1, 2018. If issued a SILA designation after January 1, 2018, the requirement is two years from the Designation issue date.
More information about the requirement can be found in the FAQ and an informational webinar from this following link.
