“A friend recommended I take the CSC at Ashton College as he had taken it previously and said it had been instrumental to his success in passing the CSC exam. My instructor was very well-prepared and had extensive industry experience: the way he prepared was so great that I used his notes for the exam rather than going through the book!”
Ana-Maria Stanescu – Canadian Securities Course, 2015
