Advanced Financial Analysis Seminar

Advanced Financial Analysis Seminar
Advanced Financial Analysis Seminar (AFAS) picks up where the financial portion of IALEIA’s FIAT course ends, providing both new materials and expanded exercises in which to engage. To take the AFAS, you need to have taken the FIAT or a similar basic analytic course.
Developed by Marilyn B. Peterson, CICA and CFE, the course has received high marks in its first five iterations. Participant rated it as 100% ‘would recommend to a colleague’. Instructor knowledge and instructor feedback were also given nearly perfect grades.
It is 20 hours over five days, with 2 hours each day of instructor-led online activity (10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon EST) and 2 hours of each day of practical exercises to be completed prior to the next class. The remaining 2022 classes are August 22 – 26 and November 14 – 18. Classes will continue each quarter in 2023 and on.
Topics included in the seminar are:
  •     Introduction

  •     Business Record Analysis
  •     Personal Bank Record Analysis
  •     Bank Secrecy Record Analysis
  •     Financial Profiles

 All materials are 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.
