Following the decision to close the CAA qualification to new candidates as of October 2021, transitional arrangements have been put into place to ensure new and existing CAA candidates continue to receive the support they need to successfully complete their qualification journey.

If you are already studying for the CAA qualification, the transitional arrangements FAQ explain how the transitional arrangements will affect applying for exemptions, sitting CAA exams and qualifying as a CAA.

Once you've passed all the exams and met the requirements, you will qualify as a Certified Actuarial Analyst

As a Certified Actuarial Analyst you can use the designation CAA after your name and you will be required to join an accredited association. Currently there are two accredited bodies - ourselves and the SOA- but over time this will change as other actuarial associations join CAA Global.  You can find out more about what happens after you qualify on the CAA Global website.

Once you’ve qualified as a Certified Actuarial Analyst, are there routes to the IFoA Associate and Fellowship qualifications?

Having qualified as a CAA and gained some valuable work experience, you may wish to consider embarking on an actuarial career by undertaking the professional IFoA examinations through to Associate and Fellow.

The studying you have undertaken will prepare you for the core principle subjects, in particular the Actuarial Statistics and Actuarial Mathematics subjects, which it is suggested you should attempt first. Those who are keen to begin their study route through the actuarial examinations are encouraged to begin with the CS and CM subjects. 

As we only run these assessments when there is sufficient candidate demand, please contact the Member Service team for guidance before committing to this study pathway.
