FIA Training

Candidates have a variety of options when choosing how to prepare for the FISD FIA exam. 

Candidates have a variety of options when choosing how to prepare for the FISD FIA exam. Those who believe that they have sufficient knowledge based on prior industry experience may elect to sit for the exam without any further training or education. More often, candidates need training on some or all sections of the syllabus to be ready to earn the FIA. FISD invited a selection of trusted training providers to create preparation courses and material specifically tailored to the FISD FIA exam. Training options include public seminars, private classroom courses where the trainer can come to your facility, and online learning, so there’s bound to be a solution that meets your needs. In addition to setting you up for success on exam day, engaging a recognized trainer has the added benefit of a $150 discount off of the exam fee for each training participant.  All trainers are independent of FISD.
