Professional in Uncertainty

The Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) develops online Professional Skills Training (PST) content for its Members to enhance their professional skills and to assist those Members who are subject to the requirements of the CPD Scheme 2020/2021 meet their Professional Skills Training requirements under the Scheme.

The IFoA’s online content is just one option to satisfy the requirements which are to undertake a minimum of 2 hours of “CPD Activities with a Learning Outcome related to managing professional ethical challenges”. The content includes a range of video case studies covering professional and ethical issues.

Unlike previous years, there has been a phased release of content this year with 3 separate releases over the CPD year (November 2020, April and June 2021).This will provide Members with plenty of content well ahead of the end of the current CPD year, ending on 31 August 2021.

  • Here is a taster of the video case studies included in the latest release of content published in June 2021: Alex is relieved to discover that her appearance ‘In the Dock’ was just a bad dream but is prompted to think about keeping professional standards in mind in her day to day work
  • A heated exchange on social media escalates out of control with consequences!
  • A couple find themselves working “Too Close for Comfort” when they start to suspect their respective projects may involve the same client
  • Clyde finds himself juggling competing priorities and superiors and discovers you can’t always please everyone

For each video case study there is a separate video where actuaries and others discuss the issues raised.

It’s a regulatory requirement for insurance companies to have an internal audit function, so why not make it as useful as possible?  This session will look at how to link an internal audit plan to the risk register, and how that helps audit committees and boards to spot problems and fix them.
