FME delivered London and overseas classroom and online courses for the Association of Corporate Treasurers from 1999 – 2016.
We were the ACT’s sole London classroom trainers for their Certificates in International Treasury Management, Corporate Finance and Funding, Risk Management, and Liquidity Management. We also delivered revision courses in the Certificate in Finance and it’s predecessor papers. We wrote classroom training materials to support our training which were licensed to other tutors by FME.
Between 2010 and 2016 we recorded classroom and online classes, and amassed over 1,500 training videos and developed this website, which was enthusiastically received both as a standalone product, and as a supplement to our classroom training.
The pass rate of those taking our courses was regularly 40% higher than the pass rate of those who did not take our courses.
In 2015, following a change of CEO and Education Director, the ACT decided they wished to deliver their own online training courses, to significantly cut the amount of classroom training they offered, to develop their own classroom training materials, and to rewrite their contractual terms to reflect their increased managerial input. FME was invited to bid, but chose not to do so as the suggested terms were not encouraging, and we did not share the ACT’s belief that central management would improve their product. FME’s relationship with the ACT therefore finished with the end of their old syllabus exams in 2016.
Our philosophy is to support FME now offers individual webinar support to students taking ACT exams. We do so without the endorsement of the ACT. Click here for details. We still have an excellent pass rate.
Postscript: after 5 years the ACT has reverted to employing a large training company (Kaplan) to deliver their product.
FME’s move to delivering primarily ACCA courses reflects our belief that students seek a close relationship with a known and competent finance educational professional. FME seeks to facilitate close tutor/student relationships, not to replace or overly control them.
