Default TIA - GH Specialty - Fall 2019 Online Course - Restructuring, Early Registration, FAQ

The TIA GH Specialty online course is up and running for Fall 2019!

As you know, there were significant changes to the FSA Health track released at the start of this month. We used to have Core, Advanced and Specialty exams, but these have been replaced, updated and restructured into DP, FV and Specialty exams. There were actually more changes than expected to the Specialty syllabus, but we're on it!

Some chapters were maintained, some were revised, some were moved to different exams, and a couple were scrapped altogether. See this post for more details: TIA GH DP Blog.

The online course is not 100% complete as of today, but there is PLENTY of material to get you going now! Videos and Detailed Outlines/Summaries will be fully available for each and every reading from Objectives 1 and 3 by May 19th. Objective 2 has all Videos and Detailed Outlines complete, with the exception of one small reading to be completed by the end of May.

We already have a number of students that have already signed up and are going through the materials, but don't worry, you still have plenty of time to get started and develop your successful study plan for the upcoming sitting.

For those of you unfamiliar with the product, it's much more than just an online seminar - it's a full package offering Detailed Outlines, Condensed Outlines, Flashcards (apps and printable), Sample Problems, Sample Exam, Exam Tips and Strategies, Case Study Review, Student Forums and Video Lessons covering every single reading on the syllabus!

Flashcard App
We rolled out a fantastic flashcard app for both iPhone and Android in 2017, and the feedback from students has been very positive! This app allows you to study cards by section, shuffle, and keep track of cards you know and don't know. It will even work offline and sync your progress back to our servers. There are hundreds of lists to memorize for this exam, so this app is a great aid to help you get through them all!
Learn App
We've also added some great enhancements to our TIA "Learn" app that lets you take studying with you wherever you go! This app lets you watch videos offline, sync your progress with the website as you move through videos, and a whole lot more.

Both apps continue to receive updates in our quest to make the experience even better for all of our students.

FAQ - Early Registration
We are frequently asked by students if you can purchase a GH-Specialty online course without knowing if you passed your previous attempt for the Core or Advanced exam (or preliminary exams/modules).

You do not need to wait for results to begin the Specialty online course. If you later find out that you didn't pass your last exam, simply email us at, and we will pause access to your new online course. This will preserve your new online course allowing you to study for your last exam again. When you are ready to resume the paused online course, just email us, and we will reactivate it. You will have access to all current materials (same as anyone else using the online course at that time).

Check out the GH Specialty page, where you'll find an introductory video, actual samples of the course videos, the detailed study manual, and other items included with the online course.

The Details
The GH Specialty online course will include all of the following:
Video lessons covering the entire syllabus (15+ hours of video 1 for EVERY chapter)
Detailed study manual (PDF viewable on any device)
Flash cards
Flash card app
Full seminar app for online and offline viewing
Condensed study manual
Illustrative sample problems
Practice exam
Suggested study schedule
Tips for taking FSA exams
Fantastic instructor and customer support by email and our course forums
Additional commentary in course forums on video lessons, past SOA exams, and more
Free extension for second attempt if you don't pass first sitting

Let me know if you have any questions and good luck studying!
