Having well-trained, qualified representatives is important to WFG Securities of Canada, Inc. (WFGS). It is also important to your business’ future growth to have representatives that are competent and knowledgeable in the products that are being offered to their clients.
In the past, WFGS has worked with Branch Managers, field leaders and providers to provide training to new and experience representatives. Building upon these programs, WFGS is introducing a new training program for newly licensed mutual fund representatives.
All newly licensed representatives must enroll in this training course upon obtaining their Mutual Funds Provincial License. The course is mandatory and must be completed within 90-days of registration for their Provincial License in order for you to maintain their mutual fund license with WFGS.
This program is a self-study course administered by the Investment Funds Institute of Canada (IFIC). The cost of the course is $50.00 to WFG Associates. Course materials will be shipped to the new representative upon completion of their enrollment.
If you are a current WFG Associate and have an active IFIC Student number, and have completed the Mutual Funds’ course, you can enrol in the 90-Day New Representative Training Course via the PDC link on WFG-Online.com and follow the steps below.
