TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Canadian Investor Relations Institute (CIRI), Canada’s national association representing investor relations professionals, is delighted to announced that it is now registered with the CFA Institute as an Approved Provider of continuing education programs for CFA Institute members.
CIRI is committed to advancing the practice of investor relations and the professional competency of its members, some being CFA charterholders. CFA Institute members, including CFA charterholders and non-charterholders, as well as CIPM certificants are now able to earn continuing education credits by participating in CIRI’s educational events that are offered across Canada. CIRI joins a select group of providers who deliver educational programs to the CFA Institute's 148,000 members in 158 countries and territories.
"We are very pleased that the CFA Institute has selected CIRI to be a member of the Approved-Provider Program as it acknowledges the high-quality education we provide on economics, finance, capital markets and communications,” said Yvette Lokker, President & CEO, CIRI. "CIRI members who are CFA charterholders will now get even greater benefit from their membership by earning continuing education (CE) credits through CIRI educational events. It may also encourage CFA Institute members who are not members of CIRI, to look at our educational program as a way to meet their CE requirements.”
CFA Institute members are encouraged to complete a minimum of 20 CE credit hours each calendar year while CIPM certificants are required to earn 45 credit hours during each three-year cycle.
