Individuals who join the IFoA having obtained the CAA qualification can continue their studies to Associate or Fellow of the IFoA. Along with the assessment requirements, these individuals are required to demonstrate their relevant work experience by completing PPD (personal and professional development).
The PPD requirement for CAA certified members is less than the requirement for IFoA students as CAA certified members have to complete a higher level of IFoA CPD (continuous professional development).
For CAA Certified members who are not looking to qualify as an Associate or Fellow, there is no annual PPD requirement.
PPD requirements for CAA certified members are as follows:
Desired qualification level
|Minimum work experience required||Minimum competencies required*||Minimum number of formal learning hours|
|Prior 2 January 2019||Associate||12 Months||
|Post 2 January 2019||Associate||24 Months||1.1, 2.1||0|
|Fellow||36 Months||1.1, 2.1||0|
|Members who join after 2 January 2019 need to achieve Associate status first, and then progress to Fellowship after a further 12 months of PPD recording.|
*Competencies 1.1 and 2.1 only need to be completed once before qualification, they do not need to be completed every year.

This webinar will provide an update on the emerging thinking around future regulation of DB schemes:
The webinar will discuss the challenges and opportunities schemes face in evaluating end game options, choosing a target state and understanding the impact this strategic decision could have on member outcomes long after the “end state” is reached. Adolfo, Kevin and Rhian bring over 60 years of experience in the industry and a variety of perspectives as scheme actuary, covenant adviser, trustee, de-risking adviser and insurer.
Cash-flow driven investing is a game-changer for DB pension funds navigating their end-game. Suitable for sponsors who want to reduce risks on their balance sheets. And for trustees, it shifts the focus to providing greater certainty of returns, managing funding level volatility and ensuring they have enough income to pay cash-flow requirements.
