The Midwood Library (Avenue J) currently provides students access to the Bloomberg Essentials Program at Touro College. The Bloomberg Essentials Online Training program is designed to provide users with an introduction to the Bloomberg Professional Service.
Through this service, users can access trading and market data in real time as well as up-to-date news and current quotes. Additionally, Four Core videos provide users with the basic Bloomberg functionality, and supplemental Market Sector videos will introduce major market fundamentals.
Bloomberg has enabled students to demonstrate their knowledge and skill when it comes to the product by offering training and proof through its ‘certification’ program. After completing certain training and exam requirements, Bloomberg will issue you a number and certificate that will provide evidence of your accomplishment, which is a noteworthy achievement to include on your resume.
This program is free of charge to Touro students and faculty. Program participants can work on the program at their own pace, but must sign up to book the Bloomberg terminal and can do so at the Midwood Library Reference Desk. Program participants can book one 1 hour session per day. Be sure to check library hours before you drop in!
