The Future Investors Club of America adheres to the philosophy, that "Becoming Wealthy Takes Practice!" Professional athletes in major sports, begin harnessing their skills at a very young age by practicing their sport. FICA believes that as in sports in order for a person to become successful financially, it is important, that he or she begin learning and practicing wealth strategies at the youngest age possible. Therefore, FICA has developed what we believe are four of the most important components of any financial and business intelligence training system.
Four Levels of Financial Training for Kids & Teens
FICA has established an awesome financial training system for kids and teens they are: Level One, Basic Financial Intelligence Training (BFIT); Level Two, Advance Financial Intelligence Training (AFIT); Level Three, Executive Financial Intelligence Training (EFIT); and Level Four, International Financial Intelligence Training (IFIT) . Each training system is outlined in more detail below. The FICA Financial & Business Intelligence Training System also incorporates the three main important educational components of Reading, Writing and Mathematics. In addition, students learn the importance of Finance, Business, Economics, Charts, Graphs, Teamwork, Social and Leadership Skills.
Participants attending FICA Financial and Business Intelligence Training programs leave with an understanding of real life skills and just how the world of finance/ business works. In order to help make the overall experience of learning about the world of finance and business fun, exciting and informative. Each of FICA's four training systems have been carefully designed as part of our Special Training Programs, Summer Camps, Financial Leadership Training and Tours.
