What is the CSC Certification?
The CSC course is a requirement to work in the banking sector in Canada. Once you pass the exam, you are eligible to be registered as a Mutual Fund Representative in a bank. This course has two parts. You must pass Part 1 and Part 2. Then you can get registered with MFDA or IIROC as a mutual fund representative.
If you pass the CPH (Conduct Practices Handbook), then you can advise clients on how to invest their money by recommending suitable stocks, bond, mutual funds and many other investments. Some banks hire candidates without the CSC and you must pass it within 3-6 months. Others hire only qualified employees.
If you plan on only working in the retail bank in Canada, the IFIC exam is sufficient, you don't need to do the CSC. But if you want more job opportunities in the future, the CSC is best.
Can I work from home after passing the IFIC exam and getting hired?
Yes, some companies are providing online client appointments for investment advice. So it is possible to work from home.
Can I work in the back office after completing the IFIC?
If you don't like sales or want to work in mutual funds, stocks and investment processing back-office, it is possible, the pay rate is 17-25 dollars/hr. You will assist a licensed financial advisor and manage the administration of the office.
What's the pay rate for client-facing jobs with a CSC certification?
In Canada, for a financial advisor, it could be around 25 to 30 dollars/hr. So on the low end, it could be 50K annually before taxes and deductions. On the high end, you may reach 100K with bonuses and performance incentives.
How do I enroll in the exam from a provider?
Visit the Canadian Securities Institute or IFSE websites for details. Both IFIC and IFC are equivalent in the banks. CSC is also equivalent in the banks, but it may lead to many other jobs in the bank & head office.
Why should I enroll in your exam preparation course?
The topics in each chapter are explained in an easy-to-understand manner. You will save time and effort by reviewing the videos. You can study at your own pace. The price for the videos is much cheaper than hiring a tutor or attending a seminar.
