The CAS Capability Model (the “Model”) shared on this webpage is intended to serve as a resource for CAS members, other actuaries, and aspiring actuaries. The Model is not intended to provide proof of experience or expertise. Each individual is encouraged to exercise professional judgment and apply this Model as they see fit. If an individual completes additional learning to move up from one level to another level, there is no guarantee that they have the experience or expertise described for that level. An employer is not supposed to use this Model in hiring or in performance appraisals as there are so many unique factors to each employer and employee that this Model does not consider. The Model is provided “as is” and users accept the risk as to the quality, performance, and results of use of the Model. CAS, including its officers, directors, volunteers, employees and agents, make no warranties or representations with respect to the Model and disclaims all liabilities to any claims, losses, or damages in connection with use or application of the Model. All users of the Model undertake to indemnify and hold CAS harmless from any claims, losses, or damages arising from use of the Model.
