Frequently Asked Questions

This course is $125, but most Finance Training courses are $500-$1,000? What’s the catch?

No catch here. Our mission is to open access to Finance Careers to more people and we don’t think you should have to pay so much.

Will you limit capacity?

For this course, we’ll probably cap it at around 50 students which will allow us to answer your questions.

Will I get access to your Valuation Fundamentals self-study course?

Yep, we’ll give you access when you sign up.

But this course is only $75 more than your self-study course?

You are correct. We want to get you live training. As much as we pride ourselves on having the best self-study training material in the industry, there’s no substitute for live training.

How is this course different than other training courses?

Most courses overload you with a ton of superfluous information and don’t help you build a deep conceptual foundation on how to value a Business.

We take the opposite approach.

In this course, we first work through a simple, but comprehensive Valuation example with visual diagrams throughout to help you better grasp the underlying concepts.

And only after you’ve nailed down the Fundamental concepts do we dive into the more complex topic of Valuing a real company.

We get feedback nearly every day that our materials are some of the easiest to understand and that they helped our customers get a leg up on the job.
