About FME Learn Online
FME is dedicated to offering you innovative, effective online learning. FME have long believed that good online learning gives you the freedom to learn when and where you want, as well as reducing our collective carbon footprint. FME works with only the best tutors to ensure your online learning experience is efficient and effective in preparing you for your chosen exam. We work hard to align the interests of the tutor with your interests as a student: each tutor is an independent business with their own brand and approach. FME works closely with your tutors to maximise their effectiveness.
FME Learn Online is an initiative of FME Training Ltd. We host courses offered by both FME Training and by other independent professional tutors. Our current website, launched in November 2013, offers you a clean and simple menu of financial learning products, enabling you to choose your own path to your professional qualification.
