Warning

COVID-19

Cancellation of Examinations for the week of January 11, 2021


New government measures and exam sessions continued

Due to the new government measures, the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) is strengthening its health guidelines for examinations held on its premises in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and ensure a safe exam environment.

Examinations, which will resume as of the week of January 18, 2021, will therefore be held under new guidelines. In particular:

  • Exam room seating will be reduced
  • Masks will be provided to candidates when they arrive. They will have to be worn on the AMF’s premises at all times, including during examinations

Candidates who registered in January 2021 have received an e-mail explaining how to reregister for their examinations at no charge.

End of the warning

Damage insurance and Claims adjustment

A candidate must score at least 60% to pass each examination prescribed by the AMF. A candidate is considered to have failed an examination if he fails to comply with the instructions given during the examination session. However, a failure may be cancelled by the AMF where warranted by exceptional circumstances.  

An examination in the damage insurance or claims adjustment sector or a class of these sectors is valid for a period of two years as of the date the candidate passed the examination.

A candidate who fails the initial examination is entitled to write three supplemental examinations. However, a candidate who has failed an examination and who does not register for the supplemental examination within a period of two years as of the date he failed the examination, must submit a new application for examination registration authorization and then reapply to register for the initial examination.

Before submitting a registration application for a third supplemental examination, a candidate must successfully complete the courses related to the failed examination with a training body recognized by the AMF or, failing that, a privately tutored course recognized by the AMF. Proof of successful completion of the courses must be submitted along with the application for examination registration authorization.

A candidate who fails the third supplemental examination must wait for a period of two years as of the date of this failed attempt before submitting a new application for examination registration authorization and reapplying to write the initial examination.

Insurance of persons and Group insurance of persons

A candidate must score at least 60% to pass each examination prescribed by the AMF. A candidate is considered to have failed an examination if he fails to comply with the instructions given during the examination session. However, a failure may be cancelled by the AMF where warranted by exceptional circumstances.

In the insurance of persons sector or group insurance of persons sector or a class of these sectors, an examination is valid for a period of one year as of the date the candidate passed the first examination.

A candidate who fails an examination is entitled to write as many supplemental examinations as necessary, provided that the minimum qualifications (training) are valid. The validity period of this training is one year from the date on which it was successfully completed.

Registration for a third or fourth supplemental examination can only take place three months as of the date of the most recent failed attempt.

Registration for any subsequent supplemental examination can only take place six months as of the date of the most recent failed attempt.

Warning

Important

If a candidate must complete the minimum qualifications again, any subsequent examination is deemed to be a supplemental examination and can only take place 6 months as of the date of the most recent failed attempt.

A candidate who has failed an examination and who does not register for the supplemental examination within a period of one year as of the date he failed the examination must complete the minimum qualifications before submitting an application for authorization to re-register for the initial examination.
