How do I become a CAA?

The Certified Actuarial Analyst (CAA) career pathway is designed to enable you to study for the CAA qualification whilst working full time. It will take you on average two to three years to complete the qualification.

You can work at your own pace and there are exam centres around the world where you can take your exams.

To qualify you will need to:

  • join CAA Global www.caa-global.org
  • pass six exam modules
  • provide evidence of one year of relevant work experience, and
  • pass the Online Professional Awareness Test (OPAT).

For more information on the exam modules, work experience and professionalism requirements, please see our how to qualify information or view the CAA Global website.

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.
