Our Approach to Helping Our Students Pass the Canadian Securities Course®
Updated: Nov 25
Every year, thousands of people from Canada and from across the globe enrol in the Canadian Securities Course (CSC®) - the foundational financial services credential that top employers in Canada demand. It’s the baseline regulatory requirement to work in many financial services positions in Canada, including the retail banking, full-service and discount brokerage, and mutual fund sectors. Successfully completing the CSC® can lead to long and rewarding careers such as financial planner, investment advisor, and mutual fund representative.The demand for the CSC® credential by Canadian employers is strong. It’s no wonder - the Canadian financial services industry is massive, generating *approximately $63 billion in Canada’s gross domestic product with more than 12,000 financial services companies in operation (* source:investinontario.ca). Holders of the CSC® credential stand out among the thousands of applicants to these financial services and related jobs.
Enrolment in the CSC® is extremely straightforward. Students can register at the Canadian Securities Institute (CSI®) and will be enrolled and have access to the course almost immediately.
The cost of the CSC® depends on how many extra study materials you would like to pay for.The students we speak with tell us what worked well for them was purchasing the lowest cost option and using the savings to purchase the SoLis MicroLearning Practice Questions for the CSC® (our practice questions can be purchased according to volume, section, or chapter of the CSC® and can be found here Solis MicroLearning courses - Canadian Securities Course (CSC®️). Most of our students, who have spent just under $1,200 for the CSC® enrollment, use the course texts, as required, but are not looking to pay for any additional readings from a study guide or to pay for instructional videos they know they’re not going to watch.
Instead, they are looking to proficiently and quickly master the material by testing their knowledge with effective CSC® exam level practice questions. When preparing for the CSC®, it’s never just about getting a practice question “correct”. It’s about being proficient in a topic or concept of study. SoLis MicroLearning focuses on a student’s mastery, or proficiency, of a subject area. Being able to answer a question correctly, quickly, and with a high level of confidence leads to mastery.
Designed for mobile-first, SoLis MicroLearning is not a quizzing platform, but rather a rapid learning platform, designed for you to master the content, and not just memorize it. It is also much easier on your budget. Our questions cost a fraction of the price charged by traditional bricks and mortar exam prep companies who offer fewer questions and no dedicated mobile app. At SoLis MicroLearning, we do practice questions. Lots of them. And really good ones. No study guides and no flashcards. Just really good practice questions delivered via a platform designed for you to master the CSC® course content anytime and anywhere.
