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.
Around 12,000 members are required to complete the Stage 3 PST and the IFoA’s online content is just one option to satisfy the requirements. The content includes a range of video case studies covering professional and ethical issues.
You may of course source relevant CPD from other providers as long as it meets the objectives set out in the CPD Scheme 2018/2019
Whether it’s how we communicate, present our findings, or conduct negotiations; we always need to be professional. This includes being able to support our position, ensure the other party knows and understands what we have done and why, treating others with respect and being prepared to “call out” inappropriate behaviours.
This year’s videos explore some of the possible challenges in achieving this and also looks at some of the potential pitfalls of social media.
For each video case study there is a separate video where actuaries provide their thoughts on the issues raised.
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.
