Advanced Financial Analysis Seminar

The Advanced Financial Analysis Seminar (AFAS) picks up where the financial portion of FIAT ends and provides both new material and expanded exercises in which you can engage. In order to take the AFAS, you need to have taken the FIAT or a similar basic analytic course.
The AFAS was developed by Marilyn B. Peterson, CICA and CFE, over three years and piloted in Washington, DC; Jamaica and Pennsylvania in which it received high evaluations. It is 20 hours over five days, with 2 hours each day of instructor-led online activity (10:00 am to 12:00 pm EST) and 2 hours each day of exercises and reading to be completed prior to the next class. The initial class will be held February 14 – 18, 2022.  Classes will be held each quarter, with the second session given May 16 – 20, 2022.
Topics included in the seminar are:
  •     Introduction

  •     Bank Secrecy Record Analysis
  •     Financial Profiles
  •    Non-bank Financial Records Analysis

All materials used will be provided electronically. The instructor is available by phone or text each day from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm (EST) and will provide feedback on all submitted exercises.
The cost of the AFAS is $300 for IALEIA members and $500 for non-members. FIAT instructors and developers can use one point to cover the registration fee.
