About our micocredentials

Our online microcredentials are extensive courses of study, equivalent to an Education Program subject, which deliver a professional level of insight and knowledge.

They are designed with optional formal assessment requirements to enable you to tailor the level and intensity of study to meet your needs. Because they are designed by actuaries for actuaries, the skills you learn will fit seamlessly into the way you work every day.

Choose your microcredential path:

You can choose from three main levels to complete your microcredential.


  • Both the Professional Certificate and the Certificate feature assessment tasks which test and validate your learning. They're your best option if you’re interested in developing your skills and techniques and using them every day.
  • You can complete the Course by attending tutorials and engaging with the learning modules – without completing assessments. The course is ideal if you have limited time and want to gain a high-level overview of the topic.
