Welcome to Optuma Education

In this learning portal we have a number of courses ranging from getting started with Optuma through to CMT Prep courses and Quantitative Methods. 

Please browse through the available course sections below.

CMT Courses

If you are preparing the take one of CMT exams, and you don't have time to pick through the hundreds of pages in the text, then you need to sign-up to our CMT Prep Courses. We have spent over 5 years teaching this material and have been able to help thousands of candidates as they prepare for their exams.

Optuma Courses

Optuma courses are aimed at helping you get the most out of your investment into the Optuma tools. Optuma is a sophisticated piece of software and these courses are designed to help you as you begin your journey into using the software and optionally building your own scripts.

Partner Courses

When our partners put together courses which help explain the more advanced features of Optuma, we'll add them into this section.
