Last November, the CAS announced the formation of The CAS Institute (iCAS), a subsidiary of the CAS offering new credentials and specialized professional education for quantitative professionals. The first credentials to be developed and granted by The CAS Institute will focus on predictive analytics and data science.
In response to the continued high level of interest in the program, the CAS periodically updates a set of Frequently Asked Questions. The most recently update (July 2016) features information about the main requirements of the first credential.
In February, the CAS announced the formation of a panel of leading practitioners in predictive analytics and data science whose mission is to define the curriculum for the inaugural credential. Additional information about the credential will be available later this fall. For more information about The CAS Institute, see the original announcement.
