Every year the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) creates some online Professional Skills training materials to assist members in meeting their Professional Skills training requirements

These videos are designed to bring the Actuaries' Code to life by illustrating challenges which can arise in your daily personal and/or professional life.  

In 2013/2014, the video case studies focused on Conflicts of Interest and other professional issues
