Communication is key

As a result of feedback from employers and students, a project team has been revising the examination CA3, Communication, for the past year.

Two pilot courses will take place in September to allow any further refinements to be made before the revised CA3 is launched in 2009. All places on the pilot courses are now full.

The key changes to the course include:
>> Introduction of a workbook that must be completed before attending the course
>> A two-day residential course, including training and assessment
>> Presentations to test candidates’ verbal and written skills.

The course was designed to provide students with a core level of skills that can be developed by their employer through inhouse courses. The response from employers to the changes to CA3 has been positive. More details about the course will follow in future issues of The Actuary.
