I’m getting way ahead of myself here, but in checking application requirements, am I correctly [strike]reading[/strike] interpreting that the requirement of two letters of recommendation are no longer required with the ACAS application? The last time I got overly excited about possibly passing 6 that was definitely a requirement. MAAA clearly states one formal letter is required there, but I feel like I’ve missed something…
No idea, but when I applied nearly 2 years ago I had to have two letters of recommendation.
Congrats on the potential excitement!
For applying to the AAA I got a little confused when I was first doing it. It seems to be this hugely onerous thing but in fact if you’re ACAS then it’s really just a brief bit of paperwork. I think they send you said paperwork a few months after achieving ACAS.
Does the AAA really still require a letter from your supervisor? I mean, the application on the AAA site mentions it, but I don’t recall having to provide one when I applied (though it’s been a while and I could have forgotten about it). The AAA application also asks you to document your work experience, which I also don’t remember having to do – I mean, didn’t they drop the experience requirement for Academy membership over a decade ago (a bit after the experience requirement was put in place for statements of actuarial opinion)?
Pretty sure you do. Study time + Course on Professionalism should give you most of what you need. Remember COP includes organized, and professionalism. Also, you can use it even if you did COP a year ago.
