There is NO pre-requisite requirement to FAIQ. It is open to all suitable graduates or professionals looking to gain knowledge and recognition for their careers in financial services.
Enrolment for the Qualification includes everything you need for a single fee of HKD2,200: study text, examination guide and exam entry.
All you need to do is study the materials provided and then pass the associated exam.
The entire course is designed for self-study. The study text breaks down into eight chapters, each with clearly-defined learning objectives. All chapters conclude with a series of self-test questions which enable you to monitor your progress as you prepare for the exam itself.
As a guide, it is recommended that you allow 60 to 80 hours' study (this will vary according to your experience and ability).
The exam is a two and a half hour paper consisting of 100 multiple-choice questions.
The nominal pass mark is 70%, though this may vary slightly from one session to another to ensure that the pass standard remains constant.
Details will be announced later.
