Wealth Management Techniques (WMT®)


As of December 1, 2008, the WMT® course has been discontinued. CSI is no longer accepting new enrolments into the WMT course. Only those students currently enrolled in the WMT course will be able to complete it.

If you continue on your current study path and want to qualify for the FMA designation, you will need to complete the WMT® course within one year from the date you originally enrolled.

New Path

Students looking to pursue a career in wealth management will be interested in the Ch.P. Strategic Wealth ® program and designation – the only certification specializing in the high net-worth advisory approach.
