Is this sentence a violation of standard? I am CFA level 1 candidate.
Yes!! You’re not misrepresenting yourself- and are in line with Professional Standard 1(b).
no, it’s not a violation. go ahead and use it. i have… quite a few times…
My suggestion is: I am a Level I candidate in the CFA program. based on pg. 106 of CFAI Ethics book.
Slorte is correct and that is the appropriate use. There is no such thing as a “Level 1 CFA.” Remeber this, I’ve saw it on practice tests while studying for L1 last year.
