Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and Professional Skills Training

All members of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) have an obligation under the Actuaries’ Code to maintain their competence: the Continuing Professional Development Scheme (the Scheme) sets out the framework which assists members in complying with this obligation

All IFoA members must demonstrate that either:

  • they have undertaken the appropriate minimum amount of continuing professional development (CPD) in accordance with the requirements of this Scheme; or
  • due to their personal circumstances, they are exempt from the requirements of this Scheme.

This CPD Scheme is effective from 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019.  Download our brochure CPD - Helping you to get it right to find out more.

The 2017/2018 CPD Scheme is also still available for those who wish to refer to it.
