Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA)

The Actuarial Profession
The Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) is the UK’s only chartered professional body dedicated to educating, developing and regulating actuaries based both in the UK and internationally.


The IFoA regulates and represents over 30,000 members worldwide, overseeing their actuarial education at all stages of qualification and development throughout their careers. We set examinations, continuing professional development, professional codes and disciplinary standards for our members.


IFoA members must complete 15 hours of CPD (including 2 hours of professional skills training content, but otherwise any relevant learning from any source).

As there is no longer a requirement to record CPD with the IFoA, it is no longer necessary for the IFoA to recognise the CPD schemes of other bodies.
