Obtaining Your Securities License

We assist you with your exam preparations

After joining Edward Jones with your Canadian Securities Course (CSC) completed, our Study for Success program prepares you for your Conduct and Practices Handbook (CPH) and Life Licenses Qualifying Program (LLQP) examinations. It's a commitment, but well worth it. To become licensed to sell securities, you must pass all required regulatory exams. If you put in the time, we're confident you'll do well

Everything you need to succeed

Study for Success is a six-week, home-study course. You'll study full time and be compensated on a bi-weekly basis. We provide you with comprehensive study materials, practice tests, a laptop computer and printer, and a series of mailings to help you along the way. These materials cover everything you need to know to pass the Conduct and Practices Handbook (CPH) and Insurance exams.

In addition, an Edward Jones Study for Success trainer will work closely with you and monitor your progress throughout your home-study program. A training team is on hand to answer your questions.

You'll manage your study diligently

The volume of information may seem overwhelming. Preparation for the exams is challenging and must be taken very seriously. It's more difficult than the real estate licensing exam, but it isn't the equivalent to sitting for CA or bar examinations. Trainees commit a minimum of 45 hours of study each week over a six-week period in preparation for the exams. With an organized and committed study plan, you will find the information manageable.

You will be provided a detailed study schedule and study resources. Failure to pass is generally caused by insufficient study time. You must pass these tests to become an Edward Jones advisor.
