Learning objectives

Training can be organised to meet a desire, or it aims to meet a requirement. After all, on the one hand, learning serves the purpose of mastering knowledge and optimise skills, but, on the other hand, it allows to comply with regulation. Some regulations oblige employers to train employees, typically periodically, and to raise awareness (e.g. the MAR regulation, the REMIT regulation). Other regulations force parties to train their management and staff to enable them to be in control (e.g. the MiFID II regime). Entrima’s courses are specifically set up to meet those objectives.

Examination & certification

All Entrima’s courses end with examination. Exams are multiple-choice. Upon passing the exam the candidate is immediately certified. The certificate immediately becomes available on the learning platform, ready to be downloaded by the learner.

Upon passing the exam, learners can download their certificate.
