Somebody hopes that SOA members will look at the headline and not bother reading the article.

Well, you know, actuaries aren't really details people

Hey, I like a little reality about the success [or lack thereof] of our marketing campaigns.

I only looked at one but they work as an actuarial analyst. That's hardly going outside any normal territory

Just curious, is the idea that people will pursue a CERA certification in order to get into a risk management position? Or that you become a risk management analyst, and seek to improve yourself by getting the CERA designation? As an actuarial analyst hoping to get into risk management, does anyone think I could get my company to support me taking the final 6 hr exam? I have a hard time putting in the time and money on something like that without knowing if it will lead to me breaking into risk management.

Does the same exemption apply to Fellows of the Casualty Actuarial Society?

Seems like the CAS folks dropped the ball.

PRIMIA granted a waiver for their first two exams based upon the content of the old Course 220, 230 sequence. I would doubt that the organization is aware of the elimination of these exams and the switch to modules. If they ever decide to reexamine the issue it will be interesting to see if they deem the current module based content equivalent.

That's odd, since the Candidate Guidebook states

“Cross-over” candidates must pass the following exams:
CFA Cross-over : Exams III and IV
CIIA, CEFA Cross-over : Exams III and IV
Actuarial Fellow Cross-over : Exams III and IV

Last I checked, an FCAS was an Actuarial Fellow.

I thought the same thing and was going to knock off the remaining two exams but I ran across the linked page and saw the FSA reference so I figured I'd better check.
