- Dividends — what they are, how they’re paid and the key dates
- An explainer of the common investing terms you’ll come across online (earnings profit versus revenue, EBITDA, etc.)

- Investment risks and what people mean by low/medium/high risk investing
- Lots more!
What you will get from this course…
While we say this is a beginner’s program it covers just about everything you will want to know about investing. While it’s a short course, if you successfully complete this free course we hope that you will be able to make educated decisions, engage with a finance professional with confidence and help to set yourself up for financial success over the long run.
That’s not half bad for a free online course, right?
