I’m understanding that the SOA is going to be changing the courses again shortly.
I’ve got credits for the VEE’s from school under the current exam structure. Should I be figuring out how to get official credit for this before the change, or does it matter?
Unless you know how the change is going to impact you, then you should absolutely get the official credits squared away.
When they changed a couple years ago, the important part was when you took the course, not when you applied for official credit. Even if you applied after the change, as long as what you did was acceptable at that point in time, it was fine.
Always get credit towards your designation when you can.
