Actuarial Interaction and Challenge

The Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) has developed new online Professional Skills Training (PST) content to assist members in meeting their Professional Skills Training requirements

Details of the requirements for Professional Skills Training Stage 3 are specified in the CPD Scheme 2017/2018.

Around 12,000 members are required to complete the Stage 3 PST and the IFoA’s online content is one option to satisfy the requirements.  The content includes a range of video case studies covering ethical issues around topics such as:

  • Commutation factors
  • Treating colleagues with respect
  • Use of personal data
  • New Business at any cost
  • Challenging advice
  • Competency and experience issues moving into new fields
  • Quality versus cost
  • Working in an international multi-disciplinary environment as the only IFoA member

Accompanying each of the video case studies is a separate video where actuaries and other professionals provide their thoughts on the issues raised.

You may of course source relevant CPD from other providers as long as it meets the objectives set out in the CPD Scheme 2017/2018

What else counts towards meeting the requirements?

To reduce buffering issues and improve the user experience, we recommend that you access the videos from a home PC or a mobile 4G connection, as these usually deliver more bandwidth than corporate networks where bandwidth may be limited.
