LIA provides education courses from level 7 to level 9 on the National Framework of Qualifications, as well as resultant designations such as Accredited Product Adviser (APA) and Qualified Financial Adviser (QFA). The QFA is a professional designation renowned as the gold standard for finance professionals with over 22,000 QFAs in Ireland, while the APA is a steppingstone to the QFA which will give you the foundations to build a successful career in financial services.
