The only public training course dedicated to the FISD Level 2 exam.


FISD Level 2: Data Licensing

Rescheduled to November 2021


The only public training course dedicated to the FISD Level 2 exam



This course is based on, but not limited to, the syllabus produced by FISD for the Level 2 licensing module and exam. The course provides detailed insight into the complex world of data licencing, highlighting the associated responsibilities and liabilities.

As part of the course selected real world license contracts will be reviewed and dissected, in order to enable attendees to become familiar with the style and underlying structures of market data licencing contracts as they relate to data content and services provided.

The course is of equal value to data vendors as well as data users as both sides need to have a clear understanding of the contractual commitments between them, which the training explores in detail.

The final section of the course provides coaching aimed specifically at the FISD exam and attendees will receive sample questions and exercises to test their understanding of the subject area.
