Our courses and certifications not only serve to further enhance your school curriculum—they provide you with a seal of approval that will earn you recognition from top-tier financial institutions.

You are at the starting line of your career and where to go next can be overwhelming. To kick-start a promising career in Canada's financial market, CSI offers two foundational licensing courses:

CANADIAN SECURITIES COURSE (CSC®)

The CSC® is a baseline regulatory requirement to perform securities, mutual funds and alternative funds transactions in most financial services positions in Canada.

You will gain a better understanding of the financial services landscape in Canada and sharpen your knowledge about various financial instruments like equities, liquid alts, managed and structured products, derivatives and more.
 

View active jobs that require the CSC®

INVESTMENT FUNDS IN CANADA (IFC)

The IFC delivers foundational knowledge that provides Advisors substantial support to effectively guide clients on mutual fund investments based on a client's objectives, timeline and risk tolerance.

You will also gain stronger grounding in a mutual fund's legal, ethical and professional responsibilities. Once you successfully complete the course, you will earn the Mutual Fund Dealer - Dealing Representative License.
