A key component of the FT&T course is its extensive coverage of two of the most difficult and challenging aspects of the valuation discipline-capitalization and discount rates, and lack of marketability and minority interest discounts. This intensive coverage in the course is excellent training for valuators of all levels of experience. You will gain a full comprehension of the complexities surrounding capitalization/discount rates, understand the issues related to empirical evidence (the existence of, or lack of, in determining the rate), and you will understand the strengths and weaknesses of the various approaches. Discounts and Premiums are one of the valuator's great challenges. You need to build a case (a defense) for the rate used. To do this you need to understand the entire playing field: know where rates come from, what the judicial precedents are, and how to apply them when minority interest and marketability are both factors.

This self-study course includes a CPE exam which may be completed and returned, along with a $85 fee, to earn 12 QAS CPE credits (1 credit-Accounting, 1 credit-Management, 9 credits-Specialized Knowledge and Applications, 1 credit-Taxation). NACVA's four-course Business Valuation and Certification Training Self-Study program meets QAS requirements.
