L1 Fall’20 Cohort Section B Now Open For Applications

Due to the popularity of the L1 Fall’20 program, we are opening up a second section (Section B) that starts on October 10, 2020. To ensure that our current participants receive the hedge fund manager/instructor’s full attention, we will not be admitting any more TrendUp program applicants after Section B until further notice.

L1 Requirements 

We invite any ambitious and hard working individual with an interest in Finance and trading to apply for L1. 

*Please note that the TrendUp L-course program is a three-level selective program where participants will take an exam at the end of each level and move on to the next level only if successful.

Candidates who successfully complete L3 will be able to take the professional CFOA examination for free, gain access to specialization courses, skills and personality assessments, job consultancy and internship or job placements, etc.

Cohort Details 

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. 

Only admitted/pre-admitted candidates will receive an invitation to purchase the L1 course and join the TrendUp Now program.

TrendUp heavily subsidizes the program’s tuition to admitted Fall 2020 applicants, so you only need to cover the processing fees of $199.

Section B start date: Saturday, October 10, 2020 PT
