Securities Training Corporation Announces Course Extensions to Thousands of Students Plus Temporary Requirements Waiver and Expanded Course Offerings for Distance Learning

Securities Training Corporation (STC), the market leader in securities training, today announced a series of actions and adjustments initiated to provide students and professionals the flexibility they need to remain focused and performance driven during this time of change and uncertainty.

During this time of year, thousands of students are typically in the process of training with STC to pass FINRA qualifying exams and prepare to enter the job market. Nearly 25,000 students per quarter are in the process of getting a new license. With the constantly changing COVID-19 situation, STC is adapting its online learning solutions to increase its ability to serve these customers even more flexibly.

"We understand that this is an unsettling time of change and transition and we are taking immediate actions to help our students and corporate partners manage their licensing training and summer training programs," said Ed Clark, President of Securities Training Corporation. "With the temporary closings of testing centers and an almost immediate transition to virtual business environments, STC is uniquely qualified to help our customers excel in both training and business performance. It was easy for STC to expand the number of virtual course offerings, because distance learning is what we do every day. We want to extend our resources to those who need it most at this time."

Virtual Strategies for Partner Support

In response to the market needs, STC is making the following changes: extending current course access, making available cost-effective virtual course packages, and introducing new virtual option for distance learners.

Current STC Partners

  • Zero cost course extensions to address testing site closures, STC has extended all current students' access for an additional 90 days
  • Fully Structured & Customized Virtual Programs - Summer Analyst and Associates, Financial Advisor and their Support Team
  • Expanded virtual class schedule at reduced rates to support all professionals working from home

For individuals looking to learn a new skill during this uncertain time, STC has waived prior requirements for training courses. While this adjustment is temporary, individuals can now take a course without having to purchase a book and sign up for a test. STC also has a free introductory course for anyone who wants to explore if they may be interested in the profession.

New to STC

Instructor Hotline Open and Available at Zero Cost

STC has 20 instructors committed to supporting learning and training needs, and these seasoned instructors are dedicated to serving in remote business environments. STC's instructor hotline is available to all STC students at zero cost.

"We want to make sure our services are available to all students, and that whatever disruption they are experiencing can be offset by at least knowing they can learn whatever they need, whenever they need it, right from their homes," said Ed Clark. "STC is here not only for our students and partners, but for all preparing to take their licensing exam."

STC has grown to become the leading provider of financial examination training, working with the top banks and broker dealers in America to offer FINRA exam courses like Series 6, Series 7, Series 24, Series 79, and Securities Industry Essentials (SIE) in addition to continuing education, and Life, Accident and Health pre-licensing courses.
