Industry association FISD has finished the early adopter period for the Financial Information Associate certification, and after reviewing the results the pass mark for the exam has been set at 75%.
The multiple-choice style exam includes 150 questions, meaning professionals will have to get 113 questions right to pass and become certified.
During the early adopter phase, exam-takers had to wait to find out if they had passed or failed, but now that the pass mark has been set, they will know immediately after completing the exam.
The price for taking the exam is $450, and a re-take costs $150.
