Within this lecture it is possible to achieve the certificate of the German actuarial society (Deutsche Aktuar Vereinigung DAV) in "Wirtschaftliches und rechtliches Umfeld" (PO 4). Note that this certificate is equivalent to "Versicherungswirtschaftslehre" (PO 3).

To achieve this DAV certificate, it is required to separately pass the final course exam (it does not matter if it is the first or the repetition exam) and a DAV supplement exam. (Note that the semester, in which you pass the final course exam, and the semester, in which you pass the DAV supplement exam, do not need to coincide.)
