Spring 2009 VEE – Validation by Educational Experience

Welcome to the Validation by Educational Experience (VEE) requirement home page! Please review all of the information and links provided below.

The VEE requirement is jointly sponsored by the Society of Actuaries (SOA), Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) and Canadian Institute of Actuaries (CIA). There are three VEE topics:

  • Economics
  • Corporate Finance
  • Applied Statistical Methods

The VEE topics are not prerequisites for the preliminary exams (Exams P, FM, MLC, MFE and C) and may be fulfilled independently of the exam process. However, you must pass two SOA or CAS actuarial exams before applying to have your VEE credit added to your record.

All three VEE topics are required for both the ASA and FSA designations.

The CERA designation requires only the VEE Economics topic.
