About the course

During our intensive course, we provide you with the applied knowledge to succeed to the official CFTe exams! The exams test not only technical skills, but also ethics and international market knowledge.

The two-level exam aims to provide participants a thorough grounding in the core aspects of technical analysis and to further develop in-depth understanding to become proficient in practical application.

The STA Diploma Part 1 and Part 2 exams are accredited by IFTA, and members who pass both exams are entitled to be registered as CFTe holders.

The IFTA Certified Financial Technician (CFTe) has replaced DITA I & II, which started in 1996. The program consists of two levels, with the examinations normally being taken at 12-month intervals.
