Just follow the steps below:
Step 1: Before you can start, make sure you meet the entrance requirements. You’ll need to have a bachelor’s or equivalent degree, be sure you understand the Professional Conduct Statement and Candidate Responsibility Statement, be prepared to take the exams in English, and have a valid international passport. It’s also worth checking the OFAC Compliance Policy before you progress to the next step as residents of certain countries may be prohibited by law from participating.
Step 2: OK, once you’ve met the requirements, it’s time to check the exam calendar and review the fee schedule deadlines.
Step 3: Next up, you need to research and select an available test center location.
Step 4: Now it’s time to create an account with the CFA Institute so that you can register for an exam.
Step 5: Finally, just sit back and wait as it can take up to 12 hours from the time you receive your confirmation email until your online account reflects your candidacy and allows you access to resources.
