Will it work on my PC/Mac/tablet/phone?
The website has been built and the videos optimised to play through all the main browsers (IE, Safari, Firefox) as well as on smartphones and tablets. It works for us on these devices and it should for you. However we have found on rare occasions that some individuals' PCs and Macs have had their settings and systems preferences set in a way that cause a problem and may need to be changed. For example if using VM Ware we have had to disable 3D in visualisation.
If you can see the trailer that is free to view this means you will be able to see the module videos. If it does not work please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or try viewing it on a different browser.
I cannot see the trailer; can I still buy a module?
If you cannot see the trailer, the modules are unlikely to play so do not proceed to buy. First try another browser. If this does not work it may be that one of your settings or system preferences is set wrong. Contact us before you buy and we will try and sort this.
Do I need to register?
You can browse the site and click on the intro-videos without registering, however in order to buy you need to complete the registration form. This will set you up with an account.
How does my account page work?
You need an account in order to purchase modules. Once you have purchased a module it will sit in your account page and you can access it whenever you want for 45 days from the time of you first view. Also in your account you will find the course notes and practical exercises as well as a notes tab where you can store notes you've made while watching the videos. As long as you visit your account page once every six months, your account will remain active and you will have access to the notes.
How does the quiz work?
The quiz for each module is found in the practical exercises tab of your account page. Treat it as a mock exam – once you start you should aim to finish. All the quizzes except the full FIA certification (all sections 1 to 4) will take between 15 and 45 minutes. The full FIA certification quiz will take 2+ hours. At the end of the quiz you will see your results.
FIA certification – when should I buy the all-in-one course?
Finance Modules gives you access for 45 days and this is sufficient for the study of our modules. The all-in-one course consists of over 2.5 hours of video, some parts of which you may wish to watch twice. In addition there are 150 pages of notes so please make sure you can put time aside. The quiz is packaged as a single mock exam to replicate the FIA exam and should be taken in one sitting of 2+ hours.
FIA certification – when should I buy the four separate modules?
The four separate modules allow you to study at a more relaxed pace. Each module has a viewing time of 60 days from when you first click on the module so you can stagger your purchase over time if you wish. The mock exams each take 30 to 60 minutes.
These are great for my team – can I buy a number of modules?
Finance Modules has built a learning management system behind the website. For firms that wish to buy a number of modules for their teams, either for new employees or general education, they can purchase credits for staff to use. These credits can be managed by the HR team or A.N.Other who can see from their own interface who has used the credits, what modules have been studied and whether the quiz has been completed. If you would like more information please contact email@example.com.
I have an idea for a module...
Please do contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are keen to develop our library for the financial community and are working on bringing out new modules over the coming months.
