You’d need to have familiarity with statistics, excel, python and financial markets.

In case you do not, we have you covered. 2 preparatory lectures have been introduced to EPAT: Lecture 1 - Python and Lecture 2 - Statistics.

The EPAT course has helped me to develop my prospects in algorithmic trading. I have completed my Masters in Quantitative Finance & Risk Management and will be joining Blackrock as a Global Reporting & Distribution Analyst. EPAT's comprehensive curriculum guided me in developing Equity, Forex & Quant strategies. It helped me understand the market microstructure with impeccable backtesting platforms. The teaching faculty & the support team are excellent & very quick in resolving queries.

As an IT graduate, I had enough experience in programming. I tried to implement the automated trading system on cloud, but there were many errors in my system. The EPAT course helped me to understand the automated trading infrastructure and protocols, and I've been able to deploy algo trading strategies online. I am very happy with the EPAT support team and QuantInsti's relationship management, as well as being connected with fellow EPATians.
