FISD professional certification level 1

Professional certification from SIIA/FISD will establish your credentials in the increasingly complex and competitive financial information industry. The Financial Information Associate (FIA) certification is the first formal accreditation for market and reference data practitioners and will only be awarded to those who pass this examination.

This Level One Certification is designed for candidates who are relatively new to the industry - typically between 1 and 3 years of experience - and who seek to establish a robust and comprehensive foundation for their career in the financial services industry.

For candidates who are interested in becoming a certified market & reference data specialist, MDS at Work offers tailor-made courses which are designed to prepare for the FISD certification exam (optional).

All our trainers are senior market data specialists with an extensive background and tons of experience in the market data industry. Training can either be provided in-house, in a classroom environment or remote via video conference.
