CAS Exam Registration

Administration of Examinations

The CAS basic education structure has Validation by Educational Experience (VEE) requirements, three data insurance series courses, several examinations, and the Course on Professionalism. Credit for Exams 1, and 2 is granted based on exam options as defined in the individual exam syllabi. The three CAS DISCs are available through The Institutes. The CAS exclusively administers Exams MAS-I, MAS-II, and 5 through 9 and the Course on Professionalism. The Canadian Institute of Actuaries (CIA) cosponsors all the examinations except Exam 6-International, Exam 6-Taipei and Exam 6-United States. The CAS-administered examinations utilize computer-based testing (CBT) in partnership with Pearson VUE Testing Centers.
