The Canadian Securities Course (CSC) offered by Canadian Securities Institute (CSI Global Education inc, a Moody's Analytics company) is the entry course required for becoming licensed to work within the Canadian securities industry as a securities registered representative for a securities broker, known as a dealer member.
The Canadian Securities Course can also be used to satisfy the educational requirement necessary to be licensed to sell and trade Mutual Funds, ETFs, Stocks and Fixed Income Securities in Canada, as set out by the Mutual Fund Dealers Association and the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada. It is a baseline regulatory requirement to perform securities, mutual fund and alternative funds transactions in many financial services positions.
The Canadian Securities Course consists of two exams and must be completed within 1 year of registration in the course. Students of the course can extend their course and book both exams but attain a passing score of 60% per exam. The course requires between 150 and 200 hours of study.
