CERA seminar

The CERA seminar aims to enable delegates to investigate and discuss more practical applications of enterprise risk management, which is not possible in the time allowed for the ST9 (soon to be SP9) Enterprise Risk Management exam

The seminar was one of the recommendations of the CERA Board, when it reviewed our provision of the CERA qualification.

Next seminar dates

If you passed Subject ST9 (SP9) after 1 September 2012, or who were granted an exemption after 30 January 2013 you will need to attend this seminar

Before you can attend the CERA seminar you will need to have passed, or been granted an exemption from, the ST9 (SP9) exam. You do not need to have completed all the other exams yet.

Following successful attendance, those who have qualified as an Associate or as a Fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries will be eligible to apply for the CERA designation.

You can book your place online, or download the CERA seminar application form to pay by bank transfer or cheque.

What’s involved in the seminar?

Before the seminar you will be sent a pre-seminar workbook giving details of some preparation work you'll need to do:

  • calculations for a team presentation
  • reading for a governance case study
  • preparation for a debate

On the day of the seminar you will:

  • take an active part in discussions, lively debates and case studies
  • have the opportunity to meet and talk to senior risk officers
  • build on the pre-seminar work that you will have already done
  • undertake challenging and thought provoking team exercises.

Before joining the seminar you will be put in touch with your allocated team members using an online community on the website where you can get to know each other, as well as discuss the preparatory work you will have already done.

The seminars are held in London and around the UK, and the cost of attendance is £500.00

However, delegates living overseas who are eligible to take the seminar, may be able to attend at a venue closer to home rather than coming to the UK. We currently have reciprocal agreements with the societies in South Africa and Australia, and with the Casualty Actuarial Society in the United States.

You will pay the local costs of the seminar and if you can produce a certificate of attendance/participation the IFoA will recognise this as part of the process of obtaining the CERA designation.

Please contact the CERA Administrator if you have any questions about where you can attend the seminar.
