Our finance training programs are self-directed and we now have opened rolling admissions so you may join anytime to complete a single program or our Master’s Certificate program.
Once accepted into our programs, you will use our study guide, multimedia resources, practice test, and the required texts/readings to prepare for the examination. After you enroll, you will have our career coaches and faculty to support you every step of the way as you complete our programs.
Becoming certified means that an organization has trained you and tested your functional abilities within a specific finance field to ensure you hold a minimum level of specialized knowledge in that field.
All participants on the Finance Training Society platform are given lifetime access to our online classroom hubs specific to our training programs. If you register for our program on Financial Modeling, for example, you will receive access to the Financial Modeling Resource Page that includes video resources, audio resources, study guide, practice exam, online examination instructions, and additional study aides.

3) Complete the project laid out in the study guide. Send this in complete to schedule your examination.
4) Earn at least 80% in the online examination and project, and you will be mailed your signed certificate.
Our courses are accredited by The CPD Certification Service.

CPD uses rigorous guidelines that must be met in order to provide accreditation. The CPD Certification Service works internationally with organizations ranging from small consultancy firms to large training providers such as Finance Training Institute.

Below are a common questions we receive from participants:
How much will it cost to complete two or more of your certification programs?
Registration for each program costs a flat fee of $999 for one program, two programs for $1,750, or our Master’s Certificate programs cost $2,825. There are no technology fees, testing fees, testing center fees, travel costs, or study aides to purchase.
How many hours should I study the required readings and audio/video resources before I take the examination?
Most professionals take ~75-100 hours to prepare for our exams. The specific program and your past experience and/or education can affect this, however, by reducing or adding an additional 25 hours to these estimates. We have built our programs to be the most challenging finance certifications available. They are not easy and take consistent studying, reading, and reviewing to complete. This lack of ease helps to build credibility and respect for those holding these professional designations. Programs that are easy to pass, un-challenging, and low quality do not increase or improve one’s professionalism.
Is it possible to complete two certification programs at one time?
You are welcome to complete up to four certification programs at a time. If you are working full time or completing other coursework we would recommend that you complete no more than two certification programs simultaneously. Our programs are each structured to be 2-4 months long, but you can decide to complete them in 12 months instead if necessary. Regardless of the number of programs you have registered for, you are permitted to take as long as you need.
I would like to change my scheduled exam date. Am I able to do so?
Of course! Just send an email at least 2 weeks before your scheduled exam. Please send this email to our team or your program coordinator (found on the program’s homepage or syllabus) and we can update our roster accordingly. Since we offer on-going registrations and the option to set your exam after you feel you have had sufficient time to prepare, you may not need to change your exam date except in the case of an emergency or schedule-change.
Please be sure to let us know about your need to move your scheduled exam at least 2 weeks before your scheduled exam.
Who should I contact if I have questions about the materials before the examination?
If you have specific questions about your program, please see the program resource hub created for that certification within the Finance Training Society. If the study guide found within the resource hub does not help, please review our FAQ here, or email our team at Clients@FinanceTraining.com and we will help answer your question.
How long will it take to receive my grade after I have completed the examination?
Grading begins after you have completed your exam. Results will be sent to all participants 2 weeks from the date of your examination. If you passed, you will be sent our official certificate in the mail.
