Professional certification from FISD will establish your credentials in the increasingly complex and competitive financial information industry. The Financial Information Associate (FIA) certification is the first formal accreditation for market and reference data practitioners and will only be awarded to those who pass this formal examination.
Original syllabus FIA retakes end August 31. If you are scheduled for a retake of the original (not 2016) exam and find that you cannot take it by the August 31 deadline, you will need to cancel the retake exam. You will receive a refund for the canceled exam. You may register for the 2016 FIA retake for a date of your choice. As ever, any changes to your exam schedule (canceling or rescheduling) are self-service through your Kryterion account (self-service username and password retrieval is available) and must be completed at least 72 hours in advance of the originally scheduled exam date, or else the exam fee is forfeit. No exceptions. Contact Hope Wilkes or David Anderson with questions. FISD staff will make every attempt to address queries within a reasonable amount of time, but failure to receive a response to your question from FISD in time to accommodate the 72-hour rule will not excuse you from that rule.
Get your FIA plaque. Contact Hope Wilkes when you pass the exam to confirm your mailing address for your free FIA plaque. If a different name than the one you used to register for the test should appear on the plaque, be sure to mention that in your message.
