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.
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.)
The material necessary for the DAV supplement exam will be discussed in a DAV supplement course, that will be held by Dr. Frank Pfeuffer. Note that the DAV supplement exam will be offered in German and in English (as well as the slides used in this DAV supplement course; see Moodle). Upon request, Dr. Pfeuffer can hold the course not only in German, but also in English. Just ask him during the course times!
The dates for the DAV supplement course in the current semester has been set as follows:
The DAV supplement exam in the current semester will be carried out on
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:
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 not possible to achieve the DAV certificate without getting a grade (and possibly the credits) for the regular lecture. However, there exists an exception: If you cannot register for the final course exam via the Hochschulportal anymore (because, for example, you have already passed it in a previous semester) and have not achieved the DAV certificate so far (because, for example, you have written the repetition exam in that previous semester), it is possible to achieve the DAV certificate without the registration via the Hochschulportal. In this case, please still register on Moodle for the DAV supplement exam and via an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for the final course exam (you still need to pass both exams regardless whether you have already passed the final course exam in a previous semester).
