STUDENT TESTIMONIALS

Gary Wu
It has been the best investment I have made. The course content and how it was taught was brilliant-some of the best teaching methodologies I've ever encountered which let us think independently and logically.
Gary Wu Portfolio Manager, Kylin Prime Group
Akif Din
I chose LAT because it had a variety of courses and provided a lot of material alongside its course. It was the best-rated school in the UK, and it was recommended from the reviews I read. LAT was the only school I read about that provided an accredited course.
Akif Din Trader, Acenya Traders
Craig Paton
The decision to choose an educator was very hard considering the market place and how many educator providers there are now. The main reason I choose LAT other than its great reputation was the fact that it is the only accredited educator out there and I feel that really sets it apart.
Craig Paton Sales Manager, FxPro
