Support and training

Support for Financial Databases on site can often be found on the desktop or in the database instructions next to the terminal. Bloomberg and Eikon run certification training (see below).

Training on these databases is held periodically during term and can be booked on the Library Training and Workshops calendar. Training sessions focuses on specific areas for particular student groups, as laid out in the description. Training on the Library Training and Workshops calendar is open to all City students.


Bloomberg Certification is run through a module called Bloomberg Market Concepts. It consists of four modules, is self-paced and free when taken on a Bloomberg terminal. To begin, login to a Bloomberg terminal type BMC and press <GO>. Alternatively, BMC can be taken on your own computer. Bloomberg estimates it takes eight hours to complete.  You can stop at any point and pick up where you left off. See Signing up for Bloomberg Market Concepts.
