Advocis, The Financial Advisors Association of Canada, has announced that it is teaming up with the Canadian Securities Institute (CSI) to offer Advocis members continuing education courses focused on the securities market.

 “CSI is proud to offer a menu of courses that can benefit Advocis members,” says Marie Muldowney, Managing Director of CSI. “Our Canadian Securities Course, Investment Funds Course and Branch Compliance Officers Course are all recognized as satisfying regulatory proficiency standards for licensing within the mutual fund and/or securities industries.”

Accredited by multiple jurisdictions

The courses being offered have been accredited by multiple jurisdictions. This includes the Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) for Mutual Fund Representatives Course - which is also recognized by the Mutual Fund Dealer Association (MFDA) as satisfying the requirements for mutual fund sales representatives to deal in ETFs.

“By offering our own quality education programs along with quality education providers like the CSI, we can provide practical and relevant education programs closely tied to an advisor’s professional practice and needs,” says Greg Pollock, president and CEO of Advocis.
