Overview

Financial Services Post-Graduate Certificate

Saskatchewan Polytechnic's Financial Services post-graduate certificate (FSPGC) program will provide you with the foundational knowledge and skills you need to succeed. 

This program is designed to meet the growing need for qualified intermediate-level planners and supervisors in the financial services sector, particularly in smaller cities.

The one-year post-graduate program gives degree graduates the theoretical and technical knowledge necessary to build a successful career in financial services. 

Courses provide specialized knowledge and skills in banking, client relationships, consumer credit, insurance, financial advising, income tax, investment funds, and more.

Learn with like-minded young professionals in Saskatchewan Polytechnic's dynamic campus environment. You'll engage in applied learning activities such as case studies, simulations, role plays, and mock interviews. 

Coursework will prepare you to write the Investment Funds in Canada (IFC) compliance exams, which provide graduates with the required credentials to work in a variety of jobs in financial services. 

You will also develop the critical human skills needed to meet with clients, complete a needs analysis, and build long-term professional relationships.
