SOA Predictive Analytics Program
Is anyone here doing the SOA's predective analytics program? See the link below:
https://www.soa.org/predictiveanaly...icate/default/ I'm considering it, but was hoping to get some feedback on the quality/experience first since it is pretty pricey.

I feel like you could spend a few hundred dollars on books and Udemy courses and learn these topics. Packt is a decent site that has sales for online access to their books as well. There's also some free books that are good.
Also, the SOA has the application of statistical techniques module that only costs $200. Granted, doesn't cover all of those topics but gives a good start. https://www.soa.org/education/examr...stattech.aspx Some free materials to get you started: R For Data Science Intro to Statistical Learning Forecasting (good for time series which is useful but not included in the SOA program) Youtube Videos on Bayesian Analysis (goes through "Statistical Rethinking" book) Last edited by AMedActuary; 05232018 at 07:22 PM..
