Modelling Practice

The Modelling Practice (CP2) subject provides actuaries with more ‘rounded’ skills with regards to communicating and presenting spreadsheet work in a business context. The subject builds on the technical material covered in all the earlier subjects.

The aim of Modelling Practice (CP2) is to develop a student’s ability to model data, document the work (including maintaining an audit trail for a fellow student and senior actuary), analyse the methods used and outputs generated and communicate to a senior actuary the approach, results and conclusions.
