“Our professional qualifications offer relevant and transferable skills coupled with a solid knowledge base from which to propel your trading career.”

Rob Russell, Global Head Professional Qualifications ZISHI

Course Description: what can students expect?

Learners will develop an industry-recognised level of knowledge to confidently pursue a variety of roles within the finance sector. They will learn how to apply the knowledge, understanding and skills acquired using professional level infrastructure while developing communication skills, professional conduct skills, time management skills, and the ability to independently research for added employability.

Within each mandatory Level 3 unit, students will complete set tasks based on current economic activity and demonstrate their understanding of actions in an activity diary.

In modules where practical application of trading knowledge is being assessed, learners must also maintain a portfolio of trading activity.

The Level 3 diploma provides employers and professional associations with greater confidence in graduates, while preparing them to progress onto the Level 5 Advanced Diploma in Financial Trading.
