I've never really had a formal training program, more basic training to get me up to speed so I can start helping with all the projects and then learn all the details during the project.

AFAIK ISO puts all new actuarial hires through a training program that goes over job expectations/ISO products, use of Office, mainframe training, general insurance concepts, and a fair amount of ratemaking material from exam 5.

I got hired at my P&C job with no prior insurance experience or knowledge. A development program like that would have accelerated how quickly I picked up the insurance concepts.

Especially in the beginning when there's not a lot of work to do and you have a lot of time on your hands.
