The Alpha Trader Certificate Course is a
9-week educational program designed to teach new traders and investors the art and science of options trading.
As the first letter of the Greek alphabet, alpha is a universal symbol for the beginning. Consequently, it is our starting point for your certified options education. Whether you plan to trade, invest for the long-term, or just supplement your income, it is crucial to understand all the terms, mechanics, principles, and pricing behavior of options. Above all, you must understand the risks and tradeoffs associated with every strategy you consider.
That’s a lot to cover. It requires time. And that’s what the Alpha Trader Certificate Course is designed to do. It takes you from the very beginning, step-by-step, through an exciting journey into the world of options. At the end, you’ll have the necessary knowledge and confidence to start investing and hedging with options. In addition, you’ll have a rock-solid foundation from which to continue your options education.
Each week, I’ll be teaching two ninety-minute live classes through a virtual classroom over the Internet. You’ll learn all the material through slide presentations and handwritten demonstrations on digital chalk boards. You can even ask questions during class. You’ll get all the benefits of a real classroom – but in the comfort and convenience of your own home.
There’s no software to download or set-up fees of any kind. Just go to the website link you’ll receive by email, type in the password and you’re in! Each live class will be recorded so you can watch it as many times as you wish. This is a great feature for reviewing the material or for those who occasionally miss a class. And don’t forget, there are computerized quizzes complete with answers and full explanations to help you master the essential concepts.
At the end of the course, you’ll be challenged with a 100-question multiple choice exam. But don’t worry, after completing the coursework, you’ll be more than prepared to demonstrate the proficiency of your newfound options skills. Upon passing with a satisfactory grade of 80% or higher, you’ll receive a beautiful 8.5 x 11 Options A to Z diploma, complete with embossed cover:
You’ll also receive an elegantly printed course outline, which shows a complete breakdown of all the topics you’ve learned. You can submit this to your broker if you are requesting an increase in option approval levels or present it to your boss to show you’ve taken substantial steps to promote your professional development.
The Alpha Trader Certificate Course covers the science side of options trading. As your instructor, I will teach the art side of trading through invaluable insights gained from years of trading on an active trader options team. You’ll hear real-life stories about what works, what doesn’t, and why.
We’ll uncover the mistakes that new traders are subject to making whether technical or psychological and show how to avoid them. It’s the art and science together that count. You’ll have both in just a short time.
