The short answer is, “Whatever you need to learn.” No matter what your personal financial situation or background, the NFEC has instructors that have earned their personal finance Certification deliver programs built for you, your parents and your kids. We offer basic financial education for children and adults of all ages. We also provide advanced courses for adults, including a course on financial recovery.
Other courses focus on the financial impacts of life events such as having a child, college financing, marriage and retirement. Whatever aspects of personal finance you’re interested in, we have the program and certified instructors to facilitate your learning.
A more important question to consider might be about the quality of a given course and the instructors. A presenter who you don’t relate to or that doesn’t make a personal connection might not teach you much. NFEC personal finance boot camps and other programs are taught by Certified Financial Education Instructors who have gone through extensive training and practice which gives their students a distinctive advantage over students taught by less qualified presenters.
The same is true for the course material. You’re probably looking for a course that offers engaging, fun exercises that are directly applicable to your life. The course should also meet core financial education standards, so that your completion will hold the credibility to help you get a job or further your education. Any investment in yourself should open new opportunities that were not previously available. Since the NFEC is independent, we focus on our goal of spreading financial literacy and our course materials don’t have ads.
