While CSI makes every effort to ensure that the information is up-to-date, we are unfortunately unable to fully guarantee its accuracy. The information listed in the chart may be subject to change. More detailed information on CE Credits is available.

As an added feature, the ADMS course allows students to earn CE credits from a variety of jurisdictions, including IIROC, by completing the quizzes at the end of each section of the course. Students can earn CE credits gradually rather than having to wait until completing the final course examination. Here is a breakdown of the CE credits that can be earned after each section of the course:

Course Domain IIROC Professional Development CE Credits
Understanding Underlying Markets 13
Pricing of Forward Based Contracts 3
