Extremely useful in preparing for the exam. Ron explains concepts behind the material, simplifies them and allows us to focus on what is key. Ron is an exceptional teacher – incredible energy and knowledge. Thank you!

Well organized and delivered. Although the 3-day course was a big commitment, it greatly improved my understanding of the cours material and significantly reduced my study prep time.

Very informative, helped clarify what the text book was saying. Leaving the seminar I feel prepared to write the exam and more knowledgeable in general. Review and memory tips, also focus on topics of interest for the exam.

Very helpful. The focus on questions that could be on the exam and the acronyms to help remember concepts.

Brian Walling, HollisWealth Edmonton
Ron is always prepared and focuses on the important information to help you pass the exam.
Ed Mah, BMO Nesbitt Burns
Good pace and study guide. Well written. Instructor had very clear explanations. I read the book but did not feel like I was absorbing any of the material. The course summarized the main points in the course clearly and concisely.
I passed the PMT exam in mid November so I've completed all the exams for CIM. The classes and especially the quiz books were a great help in enabling me to pass the exams over a short period. I completed all 3 exams in less than 3 months. Please send my appreciation to Ron for his clear explanations, excellent examples for various problems, his great sense of humour and incredible stamina. His techniques for remembering important concepts were very original and certainly of immense help. Thank you!
Penny Petroff, RBC
I wanted to say thank you as I just successfully completed my PMT and have now attained my CIM. I managed to complete both courses in just over 2 months. Your seminars and notes were very helpful to aid me in successfully completing the exams. Thanks again.

Ron Foran is a pro’s pro in all aspects. He presented a huge amount of information in a precise, well paced manner. Not only did I pass the exams but I sharpened up my own investment style and knowledge. It’s a shame he does not have a sense of humor.
Bob Weir, Manulife Securities
P.S. He’s actually very funny but the last thing we need to do is encourage him!
Exceptional - the only way to learn this stuff! Good pace - not tired at the end - focused on very key points. Very helpful.
Michael Nott, Dundee Securities Private Client Group
Material prepared well, focused on helping us pass the exam. I have never written an industry exam without taking a Foran course. Ron keeps everything moving. Prepares us well for the exam.
E. Mah, BMO Nesbitt Burns,
I would not write an exam without taking a Foran Seminar first. Gave me the needed confidence going into the exam.
James Pelmore, Dundee Securities
Good amount of time dedicated to the relevant topics. (Instructor) very, very knowledgeable, always with good examples to make material relevant and therefore easy to remember.
Sarah Lawrence, RBCDS,
Amazing – very tailored toward the (course content.) Instructor was excellent – great sense of humour and helpful over the four days; simplified the overly complicated structure of the materials.
I passed both the IMT course and the PMT course thanks in large part to attending Foran's preparation seminars. (The instructor) focused on key concepts, terms and formulae and demonstrated a real mastery of the material. One of the most professional instructors that I have ever had. I would recommend his seminars to anyone.

I PASSED (PMT exam) I'm so thrilled, you can't imagine. I wanted to thank you so much for the help you provided. This is the 3rd exam prep course I take with Foran (LLQP, CFP) and I want to tell you that I really don't think I would have succeeded without your help. I've learned so much in your classrooms.
I've also felt that you and your team really care about your students success. I know that for your business to succeed, that makes sense, however, I think it's more than just a business decision. I've felt that you truly have a passion for teaching and seeing us succeed.
