Market data training
Screen’s market data training courses are aimed at those who have particular interest or responsibilities for market data in all its forms. It offers you the opportunity to gain key understandings of all aspects of the market data industry and improve your knowledge of market data & market data management. The certification training courses are developed in close cooperation with the FISD (SIIA) and enable you to acquire relevant knowledge in a structured and rigorous format.
FISD Professional Certification
Professional certification from 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 newly formulated 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.
