At Fixnox we have over 16 years of experience training traders, programmers, support staff and even business managers how FIX is used, best practices around it, and how various flows can be streamlined.
We offer three FIX protocol courses: Universal course is conducted regularly online & in different cities around the world, while Advanced and Custom courses are conducted on demand or for single client.

Custom FIX Training Courses
Often times organisations already use FIX for certain function (e.g. trading), or asset class (e.g. equities), or for certain markets but plan to expand that capability to support new functions (e.g. pre-trade, post-trade), new asset classes, or for infrastructure improvement (e.g. advanced routing in multi-market environments). This would require training on specific topics related to the project at hand.
That is where our custom courses are useful. Please contact us and we will work with you to define the agenda and identify the best method to deliver the training.
