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).
This certificate is a basic requirement for becoming an actuary in Germany.
Requirements for Achieving DAV Certificate:
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.
Further note that, since the passing of both the DAV supplement exam and the final course exam is required to achieve the DAV certificate, it is necessary that you register for both, generally via:
Since by the latter registration you get a grade and, if you pass, the credits for the regular lecture, it is clear that it is generally not possible to achieve the DAV certificate without getting a grade (and possibly the credits) for the regular lecture.
Exams from previous semesters that count towards the achievement of the DAV certificate upon passing:
