CERA and risk management

The IFoA believes that CERA global credential comprehensively provides actuaries with their global needs in risk management. The CERA credential provides risk professionals with strong ERM knowledge that drives better business decisions. Professional, ethical and trusted, with impeccable standards and integrity, a professional with the CERA credential is able to communicate ideas effectively and is qualified to play varying roles within an organisation, from risk manager to Chief Risk Officer and more.

Jack May comments on his experience on the subject:

"My advice to someone considering studying for the qualification – go for it! Regardless of the actual qualification itself, the background, information and skills that you gain just from studying the material really are invaluable. The fact that it comes with the CERA accreditation as well is really just the icing on the cake."
