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

Details of the requirements for Professional Skills Training Stage 3 are specified in the 2016/2017 CPD Scheme

If you are one of the 12,000 or so members who are required to complete the Stage 3 PST, you may be interested in the IFoA’s online CPD content

This is specifically designed to illustrate how the Actuaries’ Code can help you with some of the challenges you may face in your daily personal and/or professional life, and guide you in making good ethical decisions when faced with complex professional dilemmas.  Unlike previous years, the 2015/2016 content doesn’t focus on a particular theme but covers a broad range of professional issues.  Access the video case studies.

You may of course source relevant CPD from other providers so long as it meets the objectives set out in the 2016/2017 CPD Scheme

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.
