Fitch Learining

One of the most established classroom providers in the CFA Program, Fitch Learning offers a solid and very wide range of CFA materials.

About Fitch Learning

Fitch Learning was formed in 2000 as 7city Learning. It expanded rapidly both across locations and their product offering, quickly becoming a recognised leading training provider specialising in financial services.  Their success led them to be acquired by Fitch Group in early 2013, forming Fitch Learning.

Since rebranding they’ve continued to expand their product offering, most recently with the launch of Cognition – their personalised all-in-one CFA solution. CFA classes continue to be their specialty – with centers in London, New York, Singapore, Dubai and Hong Kong, they are one of the largest full-time CFA classroom training faculties worldwide.

★★★★☆ Tutors are excellent
Brandy Mangeon • Level 3

I found the tutor support from Fitch Learning to be excellent. Their tutors are very knowledgeable about the curriculum and prepare you for how the exam will be like. I felt a lot more confident on exam day as a result. Their classroom presence was also invaluable at breaking down complex topics as well as making the drier aspects of the course material interesting. The revision materials were also very concise and useful.

★★★★☆ Good prep, but still need a lot of self-study
Shayon Ghosh • Level 1

A decent CFA exam provider, which will be really helpful at a nascent stage of one’s preparation. However, attending the classes alone is not enough (this should be obvious to anyone who is halfway serious about passing the exams). To make the cut one would need to supplement with a lot of self-study.

★★★★★ Excellent
Jgam1986 • Level 1

Fitch Learning (formerly 7city) came and taught CFA Level 1 during my Masters course, they were very good. The online question bank has some truly awfully worded questions and be a little frustrating at times. Otherwise really like Cognition and the way it keeps me motivated to keep going!

★★★★☆ Metrics are great to have
tedanderton • Level 1

I used Fitch Learning Cognition for my Level 1 exam and would recommend it. I especially liked the metrics showing my progress. Readability can be an issue – some bits can be too wordy. There are a few things I’d probably add in the answer sections to make them more digestible.

Ken • Level 1

A great comprehensive program. With the course it’s all guided and provided for, you don’t need to worry about additional materials or practice etc. Just show up for class, learn, practice, and pass. Would recommend.

Attending their classes really gave me a big boost to my prep. The notes could be more detailed, but instructor support and the ability to discuss any problem areas was amazing.

★★★★☆ Very Good
Allistir Geeve • Level 2

I really liked Fitch Learning as a provider. The app is super useful to re-read a section from anywhere, whenever I have 5 minutes. The question bank is quite large.

I really like the Fitch Learning prep. My employer paid for the course, but even if I was paying for it, they’re worth the money.
