The academy offers public open courses to individual delegates, whose attendance is usually funded by their employer. It offers 20 core courses that, in some cases, are repeated twice or three times in a year, up to a total annual offering of about 40 courses. The main topics of the courses include investor relations, corporate governance, structure of the equity markets, technical analysis and trading on the London markets. The public courses are short courses that last from a half day to three days. The exception to this is the Financial Markets Masterclass, which is delivered in ten three-hour sessions per week. All these courses are offered face-to-face.
The open courses are also offered internally for group human resources staff. The main courses offered internally are the Financial Markets Masterclass, Introduction to Equity Markets, Introduction to Post-Trade and Financial Modelling.
BAC accreditation relates solely to the open enrolment face-to-face courses offered to external clients in the UK.
