Where do your DipFA® training courses take place?
Futuretrend's DipFA® training courses are held in Enfield in North London. Our training centre is at 81 Southbury Road, Enfield, North LondonEN1 1PJ
The centre is within easy reach of the M25 and North Circular if travelling by car. We are near to Enfield Town train station which is roughly 30 minutes from Liverpool street (Central London) by train.
Training takes place in an elegant victorian house, quiet and very conducive to learning and studying for DipFA® .
Can I pay for the training in instalments?
For the Full DipFA qualification we recommend you pay as you go rather than pay for all the training over the period. (That is except your employer is paying for you). You can of course pay in instalments leading up to the ime when your course starts. Please give us a call on 020 8443 2888 and we can discuss options.
Do the course fees include Exam registration?
No, our training fees do not include the exam registration, this payment can be made direct to the ifs School of Finance. Once you have decided you want to train with us let them know when you are registering so they can give you a £100 discount off your exam fees.
Are there any extra costs that are not included in the price?
The price you are quoted is the price you pay with no hidden fees along the way.
For the coursework module (AFA 2) Can I just do the online coursework option?
Yes We have found that this is the most effective approach for this part of the DipFA qualification. This option comes with access to our virtual learning zone, a tutor to guide and support you and provide a Review of your work before you submit.
If your courses are that good why are your prices considerably less than those of many of your competitors?
The answer is simple! In these hard times we are always looking to pass on as much savings as we can to our customers;Presently our overheads are covered by our IT training department which benefits via some funding from Enfield Council, we are therefore able to keep our Financial training departments lean and efficient. Our reduced administration costs enable us to provide training at much better rates than our competitors whilst still achieving 90% + pass rates.
Additionally, we are not passing on the premiums charged for West End and City hotels and hired venues. We have our own training centre here in Enfield. We don't have to be assured of large numbers of attendees before we run a course like some other training providers do to justify how much they have to pay for hiring the space.
We have found much cheaper DipFA® courses ...can you do yours any for any less?
We believe our courses are the very best price for what we deliver. If you find it much cheaper there must be something wrong
Questions you must ask:
Is VAT included in their cost? If they are not VAT registered then they can't have been around very long. Do you want to trust your training to someone who might dissapear right off the scene. Futuretrend has been in business since December 2000. Our longevity as a training provider speaks volumes.
How many days training do they provide for DipFA® FSRE? We provide 5 full days of DipFA® FSRE teaching.
How do they support you for DipFA® AFA Coursework & AFA Exam? We don't only provide you with the training and knowledge required at these stages; we support you right up to your submission date/final exam.
How many people do they have on a course? Anything over 10 means you will have trouble interacting with the tutor. We provide you with a highly focused environment away from all distractions; Our DipFA® class sizes accomodate a maximum of 8 students.... so you can be assured that you will study in a relatively small group.
What is your method or style of teaching?
Our Dipfa training takes a blended learning approach.Teaching is mainly tutor-led classroom based learning but you will have access to our VLE where you will find guidlines, templates, resources, audio, a help forum.You will be trained from start to finish by an experienced tutor working within the Financial industry taking you step by step through everything you need to know to pass your DipFA® qualification.
We do have a remote/distance learning option for the AFA coursework unit and the fact find exam.
Can you help with seeking employment on completion of my full DipFA® qualification?
We have an advisor on hand that can give you guidance and support in finding employment. We are also affiliated with many intermediaries and companies within the financial industry looking for fully qualified financial Advisors. We will be more than happy, once you have passed your exams, to review your CV and then send it off to relevant organisations.
Occasionally, we have the business development managers of such organisations come to give talks to our students regarding progression routes and the options available to them within the industry upon attaining their DipFA® qualification.
I have no financial background will this be a problem?
You do not need a financial background to take our DipFA® courses.
When you book on to our DipFA course just request it and we will send you our UK Financial regulations book for FREE. This will provide you with the ideal preparation required for your DipFA qualification.
We will take you step by step and provide you the training you need to pass DipFA® . Over the duration of the course the tutor will support you fully taking you through all the sections of the vast ifs syllabus.
What if after the training I don’t feel ready to sit the exam or don’t pass first time?
If for any reason you do not feel confident enough to take the exam, or if you are unfortunate not to pass your exam you can sit in on the course again at no extra cost. (This applies to FSRE module only). Terms and Conditions apply.
