  • Our Approach

    • Our weekend class is a complete program meeting the needs of busy professionals and students. This program will enable each candidate to cover the most critical aspects of the CFA Program curriculum with a heavy emphasis on practical, intuitive problem solving.
    • The weekly rhythm ensures the candidates understand the theory and apply it immediately before moving on to the next concept.
    • It is ideal for candidates who learn better in a completely focused environment. Our CFA instructors help dissect complicated material in a practical way.

    Our Advantage

    • More intense coverage than traditional evening classes that usually drag leaving students exhausted and stressed with no time for personal study time after a long working day.
    • Smaller classroom sizes allowing for individual attention from our dedicated staff who have been through it themselves.
    • Our easy payment plan spreads out payments for registration fees over three months allowing you to enjoy greater financial flexibility.
  • After six years of continuously improving local talent in the Finance and Investment community we have decided to take a year break to focus on our consulting work. We will resume prep classes in September 2019 for the June 2020 exam.

    We apologize for any inconvenience caused and wish you the best.

“Participating in the Alpha class was one of the most valuable and positive experiences during my CFA Level I prep. It provided me the opportunity to not only identify and focus on my weak areas, but it was also a wonderful chance to demystify CFA and gain the much needed confidence and stamina required to pass the exam. Looking forward to Level II prep - with Alpha of course!”

Juanita K. Karamagi (Mrs.)

“The level 1 CFA course offered by Alpha Review had an objective exam focus and was a useful supplement to my study routine. The lecturer displayed a sublime understanding of the program.”

Nyamu Muthama

"Frankly speaking if I went all out on my own I'd have flanked the test big time. The CFA classes offered by Alpha give an insight on what not to do and what to do, it filters the irrelevant and preps one for D-day... I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to cross the finish line unscathed if one's ready to work with the team of seasoned professionals"

Kelvin Kinyua

"The Alpha Review prep allowed me to focus on key content areas of the CFA Level 1 exam, bring out the grey areas in full technicolor. I would highly recommend this to any individual planning to undertake the CFA program."

Daniel O. Kuyoh

"Alpha review, equipped me with the knowledge and skills I needed to pass level 1. The comprehensive study notes prepared were immensely helpful, as well as the tips and strategies to pass, that Kibiru and his collegues gave during class. I'm well aware that the journey has just began but this course was very helpful. That said, the CFA also requires a lot of dedication and determination to pass, but it's worth it."
