CAS Launches Online University
According to the results of the recent CAS Quinquennial Membership Survey, members want access to convenient and inexpensive continuing education. Launched in June, the new online University of CAS (UCAS) is designed to meet those needs.
The CAS has repackaged live educational sessions and provides access to these sessions online. This is accomplished by recording sessions from live events, synching the audio with the PowerPoint presentations, and providing online access through an easy-to-use interface.
The University of CAS sessions offer many benefits:
- They are affordable and participation requires no travel or time away from the office.
- They provide another great opportunity to meet your continuing education requirements.
- They give you access to more educational resources than ever before, helping you stay current in your areas of practice.
In addition, you will be able to print certificates of completion from the online system as evidence of your participation, and your online UCAS account will allow you to keep a record of sessions attended.
Currently, UCAS includes sessions from the 2009 CAS Spring Meeting and Reinsurance Seminar. Visit the online university often and take advantage of a growing database of sessions from all of the large CAS meetings and seminars, as well as Webinars.
UCAS is part of the CAS’s ongoing commitment to provide professional education opportunities to members and others interested in actuarial practice. At UCAS, education is just a click away!
