We know CAIA candidates have busy lives, we know that the determination to further your career is weighed heavily against the time you have to devote to study and this can be the most trying element of acquiring a designation. But the fact is, it really doesn’t have to be; because we also know what it takes to pass.
Wiley have designed a platform that takes the stress out of planning your study time, so you can concentrate on soaking up the knowledge you need to develop your skills and ensure your exam-ready. Our CAIA course materials have been specifically designed to cover every learning objective in a concise way; no-nonsense, with all of the detail.
Proven to help you learn faster and retain more, our Bite-Sized Lessons are for busy, time-pressured candidates like you. Each lesson can be completed in as little as 45 minutes and includes study text and end-of-lessons practice questions to assess your understanding before you move on.
We know from our candidate feedback that this method works. You’ll get more hands-on practice, relevant to the CAIA curriculum – Shorter, segmented lessons give you more opportunities to test your knowledge and monitor your progress. This active learning environment helps to keep you engaged throughout the exam preparation process for higher passing scores.
The ultimate flexibility, no catch and no gimmicks. Once you’ve bought our course, we’re with you until you’re CAIA certified. You’ll get updates for free with no time limit, so this means if life gets in the way, you’ve got one less thing to worry about. It also means before you start studying in earnest, you can take time to browse the course and learn how to get the most out of it. Then, when you are ready to start studying, spread your study schedule over as many or as few months as you like.
Maximum Convenience – New job, marriage or baby? There are many events in life that may have unintended consequences on your study schedule. With Wiley, once you order, you’ll be able to use your course for as long as you need, no hassles. Just keep on learning!
Don’t pay twice to pass once – with Wiley you will retain your notes, practice tests and metrics.
The CAIA exams are going to test you in very different ways to other finance certifications you may have experience of and our practice questions have been built with this in mind.
Both our Silver Review course and our Self-Study package will provide you with first-class features such as the adaptive exam planner, professor mentoring and so much more. Unlike other CAIA Review Courses that require long, unbroken blocks of study time to cover each lesson, Wiley enables you to master an entire lesson during your lunch or coffee break. That’s a realistic approach for your real-world schedule.
