What are the differences between required, elective, and optional courses in a career track?
Career tracks provide a structured learning experience and help you build the right skills to become a qualified finance expert. Every career track consists of one optional, seven required, and two elective courses. They are organized in a logical sequence, with each course building on the previous one.
Required courses – There are seven required courses in every career track. You can complete them at your own pace in any order and watch as many of the lessons as you want. You must, however, pass all required course exams to unlock the career track exam.
Electives – The elective courses are still mandatory, but you can choose the topics from our course library. Again, you can complete them at your own pace in any order and watch as many of the lessons as you want. You must, however, pass both course exams to unlock the career track exam.
Optional courses – Every career track contains one optional course. Completing its final exam is not a prerequisite for taking the career track exam, nor does it play a part in the overall exam criteria. It is simply a way for you to gain additional knowledge at your discretion. Note that you’ll still receive a course certificate if you pass the optional course exam.
Since everyone joins our program at different proficiency levels, you can take the career track courses in any order you like. You don’t have to complete a preceding course to unlock the following.
We strongly recommend that you watch all video lessons included in a career track. But those of you who feel you have sufficient knowledge of the topics covered in a course can directly proceed to the exam without watching all the videos. If you wish to retake the course exam, you must watch at least 30 minutes of the course content before your next attempt.
