Canadian Securities Course (CSC®) for Investors*



The Canadian Securities Course (CSC®) has become the standard for many financial services jobs beyond its recognition as the licensing requirement for several regulated registration categories. Over the past few years, CSI has invested significantly in upgrading the CSC® to reflect its growing recognition within the financial services industry. These course improvements also incorporate many technological advances in eLearning.

We have significantly revised the course materials, added many real-word examples and practice questions and greatly enhanced our online learning with additional interactive activities. The course is now accessible and adaptable to all mobile devices.

As of August 15, 2019, CSI will apply a modest price increase of $46 to align with the investment we have made to this course and to the general rate of inflation of the past few years.

Boost Your Investor Knowledge with the Investment Industry's Foundation Course

It's more critical than ever for individuals to have a firm grasp of the financial world – including you, the investor. That's why CSI is proud to offer the Canadian Securities Course (CSC®) for Investors.*

The content for the CSC for Investors is parallel to that of the original Canadian Securities Course (CSC®)that financial professionals take as the foundation course for their careers in financial services. By working off of a similar foundation to that of a financial professional, you can get the most out of your partnership with your financial advisor – working together to have better discussions, make informed decisions and maximize your investment potential.

By completing the CSC for Investors, you’ll:

  • Learn the nuances of the investing world so you can be actively involved in your financial future
  • Gather the intelligence you need to make smart investment decisions
  • Feel confident in your newfound financial understanding
  • Get the most out of your relationship with your financial advisor

*Who Should Enrol?

The CSC for Investors is for individuals looking to boost their personal knowledge about investing, and completing the course does not lead to licensing and registration requirements with regulatory authorities. If you are interested in a financial services career, you must take the original Canadian Securities Course (CSC®)® in order to meet regulatory licensing and registration requirements.
