CAS Is CERA Award Signatory

In October, the Treaty Board for the CERA Global Credential unanimously approved the CAS as an award signatory. The CAS may now begin to award the Chartered Enterprise Risk Analyst (CERA) credential. The global CERA Web Site contains details about this international designation.

The CAS is in the process of implementing its CERA credentialing process. The CAS requirements to qualify for the CERA designation are:

  • Meet all requirements for Associateship in the CAS

  • Credit for CAS Exams 7 and 9

  • Successful completion of the specific three-day ERM seminar, and

  • Successful completion of the U.K. Enterprise Risk Management Specialist Technical Exam (ST9 exam)
Fellows of the CAS would be required to successfully complete the seminar and the ST9 exam.

The first three-day seminar is tentatively scheduled for March 2012. As they become available, details will be posted in the Admissions/Exams section of the CAS Web Site. The seminar will cover ERM learning objectives tested in the ST9 exam in order to prepare candidates for successful completion of the exam.

The next administration of the ST9 exam will be held in April 2012. The ST9 syllabus is available on the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries’ Web Site. There will be a special registration process for those taking the ST9 exam to fulfill the CAS CERA requirements in order to bypass the requirement to be a student or member of the Institutes and Faculty of Actuaries to sit for the exam. Details will be provided in the Admissions/Exams section of the CAS Web Site. The CAS registration deadline will be earlier than the deadline for Institute and Faculty students and members.

Instant Unofficial Test Results Given for CAS Online Courses

Beginning with the October-December 2011 test window, candidates taking the exam for CAS Online Courses 1 and 2 will receive unofficial pass/fail results at the conclusion of their exam.

The unofficial pass/fail result will be displayed on the computer screen at the conclusion of the exam. In most test centers, a printed copy of the candidate’s unofficial pass/fail result will be available upon completion of the computer-based test from the proctor in the administrative area outside the testing room. The candidate, however, should carefully read the result that is displayed on the computer screen at the conclusion of the exam.

When the official grades have been processed, candidates will receive an e-mail from The Institutes stating that their grades are available.
