At Financial Academy, our goal is for you to have the fastest start in financial services and our OnDemand 24/7 courses are engaging and very efficient. We don't flood you with thousands of sample questions, like just "giving you fish." Instead, we make sure you really know your business, like "knowing how to fish." And of course, when you can see it, can speak it, and really have a grasp of the business, the exam becomes just another part of the administrative paperwork you did on your way to success with your new license.
Here's what Dennis Tender at Genworth Financial said about our new course and OnDemand 24/7 preparation in April, 2015:
"...In my 27 years of recruiting hundreds of producers, I have never seen a better way to get prepared, study, and pass an exam in our industry ever. Trust me, I have used them all. I would highly recommend to any company of individual that is looking to acquire an industry license to use you and your organization.
Simply, anything else would be just plain foolish!..."

Vice President of Sales
Question: This other program I've been using since last October has a 600 page book, makes you print hundreds of pages, bombs you with thousands of sample questions, just doesn't teach it and I've already failed the exam twice (or three, or five, or 11 times). My friend told me to call you guys. How long does your program take?
You can control the pace, with an instructor assigned to you to answer your questions, provide guidance and help you stay on track. We do it right, and it doesn't take months -- the typical training cycle for successful Financial Academy OnDemand 24/7 graduates, from course start date to exam pass, is as follows:
You do not need to pre-read the text before course start. If you do, just skim through and complete the vocabulary builders or multiple-choice at the end of each section.
Question: What do I Need?
Pen/pencil, yellow, pink or orange highlighter (no green or blue!) Once you have the text, all notes are written in it, so no extra paper. Calculator. Access to a printer.
OnDemand 24/7 Portal requires desktop or laptop and decent internet speed. Windows, Mac, and library access have all been used by successful students. Google Chrome is best.
Required text for insurance, Series 6/7 and Series 63 is Financial Academy plain English for the license exam, not sold separately but included with course enrollment. Series 7 also requires STC 41st Ed., Series 24 or 26 requires STC 42nd Ed., Series 65 uses STC Series 65 42nd Ed., Series 66 uses 43rd Ed.
Question: What's your guarantee?
Tuition is waived for a license candidate who desires to retake any module within 90 days of original course start date, or until passing the license exam, whichever is sooner.
Question: What's your course access and refund policy?
Your enrollment is under a Single User License Agreement - you may not share your course access or materials with any other person. Refunds incur a $40 administrative fee. Text and materials are non-refundable. To receive a tuition refund, all course materials must be returned unused. Tuition is non-refundable once you have accessed the OnDemand Portal.
