Candidates must complete a series of requirements before becoming a member of the CAS. The required examinations and courses will lead candidates to CAS membership certification and ultimately to the highly coveted FCAS designation.
To become a CAS member and join the consistently ranked top profession, students must pass a series of exams to become certified professionals. A property and casualty actuary typically has an undergraduate degree concentrated in mathematics, statistics, business, or actuarial science.
