The SOA predictive analytics pilot certificate program provides practical instruction, soft skills integration, and a level of rigor consistent with current SOA credentials. This pilot program consists of online learning with six e-learning modules and in-person, two-day seminar. Participants who complete the rigorous, project-based assessment will receive a certificate of completion from the SOA. This pilot program will be conducted over five months. Representing a variety of expertise, 30 FSAs will participate in this pilot certificate program.
Submissions closed Feb. 10 and participants were notified in March. This program is $2,900 USD and excludes travel expenses for the seminar in Schaumburg, Illinois.
Based on the pilot program's findings, the SOA's Professional Development Committee will make a recommendation to the SOA Board about creating a permanent certificate program in predictive analytics.
