The CAA: your journey—at your pace
This isn’t your average march toward a qualification. The Certified Actuarial Analyst (CAA) career pathway is designed to be flexible for many lifestyles. You can work at your own pace, and you can take your exams at exam centres around the world. Plus, if you choose to, you can study for the CAA qualification while working full-time.
On average, it takes two to three years to complete the CAA qualification. Here are the steps:
- Register for exams.
- Pass the exam modules.
- Provide evidence of one year of relevant work experience.
- Pass the Online Professional Awareness Test (OPAT).
Please note the final CAA exam sitting will be in October 2023.
Once you have met these requirements, and joined one of the associations recognized by CAA Global you will be eligible to qualify as Certified Actuarial Analyst.
You can opt to join the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, based in the United Kingdom, the SOA Center, a subsidiary of the Society of Actuaries, based in the United States, and the Actuarial Society of South Africa (ASSA) based in South Africa.
