London Academy of Trading

London Academy of Trading

The London Academy of Trading (LAT) is a recognised and accredited institution that offers trading certifications and was the first British trading academy to achieve this.

LAT provides a variety of vocational courses that give candidates a practical experience to help them invest, trade successfully or to boost their CV with additional skills.

Their academic provision includes daily webinars which feature expert market insights, answer your questions and allow for informative discussions. Learners also have access to real-time trading systems and the academy’s tutors and mentors are available for 10 hours a day to provide personal guidance.

Those who take the Advanced Trading Course will be awarded the Level 5 Diploma in Applied Financial Trading which is recognised by the Association of Business Executives (ABE) and regulated by Ofqual.

LAT’s shorter courses are certified by Continuing Professional Development (CPD), and LAT itself is accredited by the British Accreditation Council (BAC), which means international candidates can study on short-term study visas.

There’s also the option of flexible learning with monthly intakes for every course, and the option to pause your education anytime and upgrade from one programme to another by just paying the difference in fees.

If you like the sound of the Advanced Trading course, flexible payment options are available, and you can spread the cost in instalments with 0% interest.

The LAT campus recently reopened, and as a result, the academy is pleased to be able to offer multiple study modes across their course portfolio with online learning, on-campus classes or you can opt for a mixture of both on some courses – more information can be found under each programme.
