In 2005, the University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies approached me, and asked if I would be interested in designing and instructing CFA Preparation Courses. It is without a doubt the highlight of my academic career.
Building Your Success
A significant part of our participants’ success is due to the unique methodology of the Passing the CFA® course. Each course in the CFA® program is built on four pillars:
- An Early Start. Most CFA® preparation courses begin in January, about five months before the CFA® Examination. Our courses start in late October, providing an extra 10 weeks for preparation and practice.
- Instructor Accessibility. Michael is available seven days a week via e-mail and telephone and has regularly scheduled office hours — three hours per week every Saturday afternoon for the duration of the course.
- Augmented Source Material. Our notes and audio lessons are derived from the CFA® prepared materials and augmented by Michael based on his expertise and experience.
- Constant testing. Each class begins with a quiz on the previous week’s material. Throughout each course there are three tests, a half-exam, and, at the end of the course, a six-hour mock exam. This allows participants to measure their ranking relative to their peers.
