WHAT IS CFI?
Corporate Finance Institute® (CFI) is one of the leading global financial training providers. It specialises in online certification programs and works with individuals, education providers, investment banks, accounting firms, and major operating companies worldwide.
The online training provides you with theory and practical skills. The program takes you through the examples and exercises with regular interactive knowledge checks. It also provides you with templates and support material as you progress.
The training certifications are recognised within the industry. This means the qualification can be used by candidates who want to start a new career or further develop their current career. Yet, the certifications are also affordable enough that people like me can complete them to improve their personal investing and financial capabilities.
I found CFI due to my obsession with financial modelling. I signed up originally to complete some of their free courses, such as Accounting Fundamentals and Reading Financial Statements. However, the training was so comprehensive yet easy to follow; I decided to sign up for the Financial Modeling & Valuation Analyst (FMVA)® certification program. I am currently part way through this, then intend to complete their Capital Markets & Securities Analyst (CMSA)® certification program.
See below for some additional details on the certification programs and the 10% discount offer I have available to Bull Headed Bear readers.
