BREAKING NEWS! The SEC has approved the SIE to launch October 1, 2018.

        The SIE will benefit your                            employees.

Everything you need to know to launch your Financial Services Career! 



Recruiting and finding a job in Finance - How the SIE is changing the game

The most important impending change is that FINRA will be allowing individuals who are not associated with financial firms to take the SIE Exam. Unlike traditional securities exams that require an individual to be an employee of a sponsoring firm, the SIE Exam allows college students and career changers, the two most important sources of new hires, to take the exam without sponsorship. 

However, unlike other FINRA exams, the SIE Exam will not allow an individual to perform a particular function, but will instead serve as a prerequisite for taking additional “top-off” exams in their desired area of expertise. A combination of the SIE Exam plus a top-off exam will be equivalent to the securities exams currently being offered (e.g. Series 6, 7, 57, or 79). 


STC can help you pass the SIE and top-off exams

Our industry-leading materials will reflect FINRA's final outline for the SIE Exam. STC will cover topics such as Capital Markets, Products and their Risks, Trading, Customer Accounts and Prohibited Activites, as well as provide an overview of the regulatory framework. Our Online Practice Exams, On-Demand Lectures, and Online Flashcards will help you prepare for the SIE Exam as efficiently and effectively as possible. You can rely on STC to provide you with all you need to pass the test.
