Program Overview

The Canadian Securities Course (CSC®) at Ashton College is the perfect preparation for writing the CSC® examinations and attaining your CSC® designation. The Canadian Securities Course is the industry standard for those entering the financial services and is used by serious investors across Canada.

The financial services industry is undergoing a massive change in Canada, creating exciting new career opportunities for professionals with recognized education and skills. For those just entering the financial services industry, the Canadian Securities Course provides the knowledge and skills that employers demand. For those currently working in the industry, the CSC® will enhance existing skills and help students excel in their careers and provide the best service to clients.

Ashton College’s financial services faculty are all experienced industry professionals, and the instructor-led classes provide valuable face-to-face interactions. Students will also receive a 10% discount on CSI registration and textbooks.

Successful completion of the CSC® prepares students to write the CSC Exams through the Canadian Securities Institute (CSI) and then apply for a mutual fund licence. It is the first step towards licensing for trading stocks and bonds, and it allows students to proceed with the Canadian Investment Manager or Financial Management Adviser designation streams.

Employers require the CSC® designation in the financial services industry. Examples of career opportunities include:

  • Licenced mutual fund representative;
  • Full-service investment adviser or discount brokerage investment representative;
  • Bank and trust officer, financial planner, or mutual fund representative;
  • Portfolio management, as an adviser or as a personal investor.
