The CAS in partnership with The Institutes is pleased to announce that CAS Online Courses will now be offered at a 50% discount to full-time students and candidates without full-time employment. This discount will apply to CAS Online Courses 1 and 2, as well as the new online course on data concepts referenced in the December news post outlining changes to CAS’s 2023 credentialing requirements. The new Online Course 3 will be offered in fall 2022 and is being released as part of the CAS’s multi-year Admissions Transformation Plan (ATP).
The CAS Online Courses provide candidates with industry and technical knowledge that is used by actuaries in their everyday job duties. While these courses have typically been taken towards the latter part of a candidate’s credentialing journey towards associateship, candidates would benefit from taking these courses after meeting the Exam 1 and 2 requirements to prepare them for internships and their first full time opportunity. They can take the courses remotely, and the new discount will make it more viable for the Online Courses to be taken while still in school, or prior to gaining full time employment.
“As a long-standing partner of the Casualty Actuarial Society, we are pleased to make these courses and credentialing opportunities more accessible to today’s college students,” said Adam Carmichael, CPCU, President of The Institutes. “Together we can ensure a strong future for new professionals seeking to expand their knowledge and skills in insurance predictive analytics and data science.”
Students who are members of CAS Student Central, CAS’s free program for university students, and candidates not currently employed full time can now apply for a 50% discount by filling out a short form and receiving a one-time code to use when registering for the course.
