Not an easy exam, but training makes it easier.
The detailed eTraining course from Learning Modules is a popular way to prepare. Need flexibility? Too hard to get your whole team together in one room? Get the benefits of eight hours of instruction, but without any of the hassle. Short clips make it easy to do a little work towards your goals every day. You could complete the eight hours of video instruction in one month if you watched just 15 minutes per day. FISD members can purchase a bundle that includes exam registration plus the course for $940 USD (a savings of $100).
Not a dev? No problem.
You don’t have to be a developer to benefit from a deeper understanding of financial information technology. There is a wide variety of technology that supports business activity and information transmission between exchanges, information providers, vendors, buy-side, and sell-side firms. Understanding it all will give you an edge.
The FISD Financial Information Technologist certification (FISD FIT) is a Level 2 FISD exam. You may take it without having completed the Level 1 FISD Financial Information Associate (FISD FIA) exam if you wish, but we do recommend starting there if you are fairly new to the industry.
