CFA CFA annual PD criteria? (as in Harper's description)


New Member
I'm a new guy pondering taking the CFA.
I stumbled upon this site and the description of David Harper on https://www.bionicturtle.com/about/our-team says that he's been "meeting annual PD criteria every year since".
This confuses me a bit because:
1) I'm not sure what PD refers to. Personal Development?
2) I can't find these requirements anywhere.
Again, I'm new, so if someone could give me a pointer here, it would be appreciated.

Hi @inde !

I need to update my bio. Professional Development (PD) was the previous term(inology), which at some point the Institute must have re-branded into their current Continuing Education (CE) Program. The details are pretty much the same: it's a voluntary, honor-based, annual program which requires 20 hours per year (including 2 ethical hours):
I hope that helps, thanks!
