FINRA adjusts online testing requirements for candidates seeking to take futures industry proficiency exams

FINRA administers the futures industry proficiency exams on behalf of NFA, including the Series 3, Series 30, Series 31, Series 32 and Series 34. Beginning Friday, June 9, 2023, FINRA will end its interim accommodation process, and only certain individuals will be able to request online administration of these exams. These individuals include:

  • Those experiencing underlying health conditions or are immunocompromised and at an increased risk for severe illness; or
  • Those who live more than 150 miles from a test center.

Candidates can visit FINRA's website for more information about proficiency exam administration and how to request available accommodations.

Note that NFA's Swaps Proficiency Requirements are not impacted by this change.
