2018 CFA Level 2 - 1 Week Calgary Crash Course

Overview: This intense, total-immersion crash course is ideal for candidates who need considerable and deep coverage of all topic areas and combines essential curriculum review with hands-on item-set solving.

In the past, Calgary-based candidates would have to travel out of town to attend such an in-depth course. Now, you can stay at home, saving precious travel time, flight and hotel expenses, and hassle, allowing you to time to study more.

Daren will be joined this year by guest instructors, trained in Daren's direct, concise teaching style, using tools created specifically for enhancing your learning experience.
