There are many routes to achieve the one objective:
The STA Diploma.
STA Education runs annual CISI accredited Diploma Part 1 and Part 2 courses for both experienced and novice analysts in central London (venue: London School of Economics). We also run courses for post-grad students at King’s College London and Queen Mary University London. All teaching is by qualified STA members. The courses are accredited for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) by the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment (CISI).
Candidates who have successfully passed both parts of the STA Diploma are eligible to receive the International Federation of Technical Analysts’ (IFTA) Certified Financial Technician (CFTe) accreditation.
The Home Study Course (HSC) allows students who live overseas or too far from London to study for the STA Diploma. The HSC was developed over several years and is the result of extensive collaboration between analysts and system providers around the globe.
The monthly presentations provide additional knowledge and insights to technical analysis.
The core reading list is an essential part of preparing for both STA Diploma Part 1 and Part 2 examinations.
For our classroom based courses at the LSE, we will be following all government social distancing guidelines to ensure the safety of students and staff. Face masks will be mandatory. The courses will be delivered live online/via zoom if tightening of Covid 19 restrictions do not allow them to go ahead at the LSE, something we did with great success during the Diploma Part 2 course earlier this year.
For the Part 1 and 2 exams, provision has been made for candidates to sit the exam(s) in their own personal space, using Zoom invigilation. The July examinations were successfully held this way, delivering outstanding results for many of the candidates involved.
