Overview

Graduate Certificate in Financial Planning Services

Completing this accelerated two-semester program will allow students to obtain an Ontario College Graduate Certificate in financial planning. 

The program will provide students with all of the technical educational requirements leading to different certifications such as: 

  • Qualified Associate Financial Planner™ designation
  • Certified Financial Planner® designation,

And optional licensing opportunities with industry regulators such as the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC), the Mutual Fund Dealer Association (MFDA) and the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO) for insurance licensing purposes. 

The progressive course of study combines courses designed at Conestoga with those from industry standard-setting organizations to prepare students for employment opportunities in banking, insurance, private wealth, brokerage and/or independent practice.

 

Note:

Students have the option to challenge the Canadian Securities Course (CSC) and the Life Licensing Qualifying Program (LLQP) industry examinations, which provide credentials that are highly sought after by employers. 

There are additional fees associated with both industry examinations.
