After releasing capstone exam dates earlier this year, the Canadian Institute of Actuaries (CIA) announced the releasee of its first module in the institute’s new education system.
“The CIA marks the official start of its new education system with the release of the first content module, a major milestone in transforming the actuarial education landscape in Canada,” the CIA said in a statement.
“This first module is tailored for students who intend to leverage their accredited university degrees in actuarial science to attain their Associate of the CIA (ACIA) designation.”
Steve Prince, fellow of the CIA and its current president says the change creates a pathway to the profession that is uniquely Canadian. It also makes the profession accessible to a wider range of individuals, he adds.
The complete rollout of the CIA’s education program will be complete by January 2024, at which time all of the new modules and exams for achieving the ACIA designation will be accessible. “The modules and exams for achieving Fellow of the CIA (FCIA) designation will follow later in 2024,” they state.
