The following schedule is subject to change:
20 Units in Total (1 Unit is 2 hours, ten lectures and ten practice sessions)

With the exercises, I mainly deal with past problems from actuary exams and end of chapter problems from Professor Futami’s textbook (Parts 1 and 2).  Although it is fine to look at notes and materials when solving problems, please prepare yourself to ultimately be able to answer each question without assistance.

If you cannot attend class at any time, we are able to provide a video recording of the lecture or lectures missed for those who have paid full tuition at the time of application.  Please do not hesitate to take advantage of this service.
