Financial Trading Course – CPD Certified


Where does your money go? And after paying your bills and expenses for the month, do you even have any left? For far too many people, the answer to that second question is a resounding “no.” Mortgages, car payments, tuition, medical bills, life; it all adds up. And investing for the future can sometimes feel near impossible when you’re just struggling to make ends meet today. But, as Warren Buffett has said, “Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.” Preparing for your future starts today, and for many of us, creating that shade for tomorrow begins with financial trading. Despite what you may have been led to believe, you don’t have to be a financial genius to make financial trading work for you. You just have to understand some of the basics, and then be willing to learn as you go.

This course has been specifically designed for those hoping to begin building their own financial nest egg, harnessing the potential available through financial trading.

We understand that the financial market can be intimidating to some, and that essentially gambling with your own money can feel like a huge risk. But through this course you’ll learn that there is some fun to be had in that, and perhaps even more importantly, that through responsible trading, the risks are fairly low.

We’ll walk you through the terms you may not yet know, the tools at your disposal, and the resources you can turn to when you’re hoping to learn even more.

Most importantly, this course will teach you what you need to know to begin trading and to start making money in the process.

How is the Financial Trading course assessed?

There is a short multiple choice exam at the end of each module for you to take and you’ll know your score immediately.

By studying Financial Trading online with IOA, you do not pay an extra fee for sitting an exam or have to wait for a set date to sit an exam.

Will I get a certificate?

Yes, those who successfully complete the exams will be awarded the PDF Financial Trading Certificate. (Already included in price)
