- Number of graduate Series 63 programs alone grew by 146 percent
- Knopman added training programs for additional FINRA exams
We are pleased to announce that 2013 was a year of unprecedented growth for our firm. In addition to introducing the Knopman Financial Training Blog, the overall number of graduate training programs for FINRA examination candidates doubled over the previous year. Knopman Financial Training’s growth also includes the introduction of new training programs for the Series 86, Series 87 and Series 52 exams.
The number of graduate Series 63 programs alone grew by 146 percent in 2013 in order to meet increased demand for training to pass the FINRA examination required of individuals looking to purchase or sell securities at the state level. Other key FINRA training programs, including the Series 7 and Series 79, required for individuals beginning an investment banking career, saw 83 percent and 75 percent growth, respectively.
Recent Knopman graduates trained in the summer of 2013 achieved record pass rates, as well. For instance, our summer classes for the Series 79 produced a 98 percent pass rate, the Series 7 classes enjoyed a 96 percent pass rate and 95 percent of our Series 63 students passed the exam.
Our firm also saw significant growth in virtual learning interest in 2013 including a 37 percent increase in mobile application users. The Knopman Mobile App, currently supplementing a range of Knopman Financial Training courses including Series 7, Series 24, Series 63, Series 79 and Series 99 exams, combines on-demand training, practice Q&A and flashcard functionality to create an integrated mobile offering that enables candidates to prepare for FINRA examinations using Knopman’s trusted content from anywhere in the world.
According to Harvey Knopman, President and Founder of Knopman Financial Training, “While much has been made of Wall Street losing ground to the likes of Silicon Valley in attracting top talent, we continue to see a strong demand for FINRA examination training for those looking to start or further a career in the financial sector. Over the past year we have expanded both the number and type of training offerings that we deliver to address these demands. As a firm, we look forward to further growth as we continue to provide candidates with innovative training and materials so that they can best prepare when and how they want to effectively pass these various FINRA exams.”
