CFA Level 1 Curriculum

What is a Learning Outcome Statement?
Learning Outcome Statements (LOS) are descriptions of specific knowledge, skills, and abilities that you should be able to apply after you complete a reading. The statements use command words such as “demonstrate,” “formulate,” or “evaluate” to indicate how much you should know about a given topic.

Curriculum Corrections
We continually update the curriculum with errata — corrections we collect, verify, and publish for your review. See the latest errata (if any) above.
