Sponsorship not required
Traditional securities exams usually require an individual to be an employee of a sponsoring firm to take the exam. The SIE Exam will not require the candidate to have sponsorship and individuals are permitted to take the exam before or after associating with a firm. The exam will not allow an individual to perform a function, but will instead serve as one part in a combination of exams that will be equivalent to the securities exams currently being offered (e.g., Series 6, 7, 57, or 79). Interested candidates, 18 and older, will be available to enroll for the SIE Exam on or after October 1st, 2018. The SIE Exam will be pass/fail, and individuals who pass will not receive a numerical score. The exam results are valid for four years.
“We understand the importance of the new SIE Exam and we look forward to a streamlined testing process,” said Paul Skordilis, President of STC. “We are excited to be the first-to-market for SIE Exam training to help qualified candidates enter the securities industry.”
