The basic idea of The Danish Finance Society/CFA Society Denmark’s CFA courses is to help with preperation for the CFA exam. Over the past 10 years the pass rate for the Level I exam has varied between 34% and 62%.

The structure and content is based on more than 10 years of experience, but since 2012 the teaching has been carried out by CFA Charterholders. The program for this course is outlined below. The course is spread over 12 sessions on Tuesday evenings, at 17-21 PM. The last two evenings are reserved for two mock exams, which are inclduded in the course fee. Additionally, there will be an introduction meeting for participants.

The topics for the rest of the evenings are chosen based on the CFA Candidate Body of Knowledge and the content is closely correlated with the CFA Study Session Outline, which is where the CFA recommended readings are listed.
