About the CFA Program
Earning the CFA charter is the ‘gold standard’ and can set you apart from the crowd. It proves that you have a thorough understanding of financial markets, and high levels of professionalism and ethics. It also demonstrates your drive for success and excellence.
The CFA Program is made up of three levels, each building on the knowledge and skills you developed in the previous level.
The CFA Institute recommends a minimum of six months of study for each level, which works out as 300 hours. Most learners take around four years to become a charterholder.
To study, you will need to have a Bachelor's degree, or be completing the final year of your degree. Alternatively, you could have four years of relevant qualified work experience, or have a combination of both.
