Nevertheless, many Insurance Professionals have expressed a need to understand and appreciate actuarial science and a few actuarial applications that are commonly used.


College of insurance has been noticing that there are four segments of insurance professionals from non-actuarial departments who have to deal with actuarial terminology and applications, albeit at a limited level, as part of their work.

1. Understand reports prepared by Actuaries – at senior or peer levels.
