Hi Everyone,

STUDENTS: Did you see last week’s message from Student Rep Pedro? Read it here.

Details of the SOA’s move to Computer Based Testing.

CAS is also moving to Computer Based Testing.

The IFoA’s new CPD Scheme will come into effect shortly. From 1st September, there will no longer be different membership categories for the purposes of CPD. All Members will be subject to the same requirements in terms of the CPD scheme (including a requirement for 15 hours of CPD) unless they qualify as exempt.

The new CPD Scheme applies to all Members except:

    Student Members;

    QAS Members; and

    Non-Practising Members

On 9th July 1970, R. Watson & Sons, a UK firm of consulting actuaries, started a branch office in Jamaica.  In the intervening years the company grew through changes in name and partnerships, becoming Duggan Consulting Limited on 1st July 2003.
