Prerequisites for the CAS Courses on Professionalism to Change in 2011

Since the new basic education structure will include revised requirements for Associateship in 2011, the CAS is updating the prerequisites for the CAS Course on Professionalism.

In the current CAS basic education structure, the requirements for Associateship are Exams 1-7, three VEE requirements, and the Course on Professionalism. The current prerequisites for candidates to enroll for the Course on Professionalism are:

         
  1. Credit for any five actuarial exams and all three VEE requirements

    or


  2. Credit for any six actuarial exams in the current education structure—regardless of VEE status.

The two segments of Exam 3 (3F and 3L) together count as one exam.

In 2011, the requirements for Associateship will change to Exams 1-6, three VEE requirements, Online Courses 1 and 2, and the Course on Professionalism. In light of the revised Associateship requirements, the eligibility requirements for the Course on Professionalism will be changed to the following beginning in 2011:

         
  1. Credit for any four actuarial exams AND credit for any four of the following five requirements: Online Course 1, Online Course 2, VEE-Applied Statistical Methods, VEE-Corporate Finance, or VEE-Economics

    or

  2. Credit for any five actuarial exams in the 2011 education structure—regardless of Online Courses or VEE status.

The two segments of Exam 3 (3F and 3L) together count as one exam.

Revised Schedule for Release of Exam Syllabi

When the CAS 2011 Syllabus of Basic Education is released in November, it will contain the individual exam syllabi for all the preliminary exams (i.e., Exam 1-4) as well as those of the spring upper-level exams (i.e., Exams 5, 7, and 9). Study Kits and Web Notes for the spring exams will be available in December.

The individual exam syllabi for fall exams will be released in March with Study Kits and Web Notes available in April. Therefore, the final syllabi for Exams 6-Canada, 6-United States, and 8 will be posted in March 2011.
