Default Changing goal from ASA to ACAS

Sorry if this has been asked, but i had a difficult time finding this information online.

If I have passed P, FM, MLC, MFE and C and also have my VEE credits, what ACAS exams would be left in order to get the ACAS credential?
Also, is there anything similar to the SOA FAP modules in the CAS requirements?


Thank you in advance for your time and response.

Most likely:

MAS-I (with Stat VEE, you might get credit for this, though; I don't recall the transition rule for MAS-I off the top of my head)
OC1
OC2
Exam 5
Exam 6
Course on Professionalism

Nothing really comparable on the CAS side to the FAP modules.

Found this on the CAS site ď If an SOA Member completed SOA Exam MLC and VEE-Applied Statistics prior to 2014, credit for CAS Exam S would be granted under Transition Rules and subsequently Exam MAS-I.Ē

I completed MLC prior to 2014, but the VEE in 2017. Is the CAS a cool organization and upon review be likely to grant credit? I assume the major point is that MLC was passed prior to 2014 as the VEE requirements havenít changed for some time.

Doubt it unless there's a separate transition rule for MAS-I that is more recent. No harm in asking though.

Agree with redearedslider . . . if you have documentation stating you've satisfied the VEE-Stats and MLC before the deadline of the transition, you should be given credit for MAS-I.

To get transition credit for MAS-I you need credit for S effective before the start of 2018, but to have transition credit for S you needed all of its requirements completed (which includes the stats VEE) before the end of August 2016. I'm thinking you're going to be stuck taking MAS-I.
