New Faster, Easier, Streamlined Continuing
Education (CE) Submission For All RPA Members
The Society of Registered
Professional Adjusters understands that our members are insurance claims
professionals devoted to professionalism and ethical leadership in the
The previous requirements for submitting
CE's were beyond that of other professional organizations such as attorneys,
accountants, and other insurance license holders. The Board of the RPA
has revamped our entire process of requirements for the registration
of our members' Continuing Education credits.
new Continuing Education (CE) submission forms are available for download
here. The new forms acknowledge that our members are trustworthy,
ethical, and professional. You can even submit CE credit requests
online using our new
Online CE Form.
Simply fill it in and submit it on your PC -- no need to print or mail
still prefer to use the downloadable forms,
you simply list the courses you've taken along with basic information,
then sign and certify completion of the courses and submit to RPA. We
realize how busy our members are and trust that this choice of easy
new procedures will better enable each member to submit their CEs more
easily and on a timely basis.
Earlier, the Board instituted
another idea that our members had requested. Members could not always
secure all of their 15 hours of CE credits in one year (due to conflicting
schedules, business and personal reasons, catastrophes, etc). The RPA
will now allow members who are short in CEs one year to apply an overage
in CE credits either from one year previous or one year forward.
You spoke, we listened!
