One qualification based on mastery of one set of learning objectives with accreditation applied on a consistent basis worldwide. No other qualification comprehensively meets the global needs in risk management.

* All signatories to the Treaty use the acronym 'CERA', but CERA variously translates as one of the following, according to local requirements:

  • Chartered Enterprise Risk Analyst
  • Certified Enterprise Risk Analyst
  • Chartered Enterprise Risk Actuary
  • Certified Enterprise Risk Actuary

The CGA grants actuarial organisations the right to award the global CERA qualification to individual actuaries who have satisfied the requisite education and training requirements set out in the CERA Global Treaty.

The CERA qualification provides risk professionals with strong ERM knowledge that drives better business decisions. Professional, ethical and trusted, with impeccable standards and integrity, a professional with the CERA qualification is able to communicate effectively ideas with leadership and is qualified to play varying roles within an organisation, from risk manager to Chief Risk Officer and more.
