In 2012, the PCMA and IFSE Institute signed a partnership
agreement to work collaboratively to update the content of the
EMP Course to reflect the changing industry and educational needs
of Dealing Representatives in the exempt market. The PCMA and
IFSE considered the feedback of the industry, regulators and past
students to assess the strengths of the existing EMP Course and
identify areas of improvement and new areas of focus.
The PCMA and IFSE developed entirely new content and
updated the focus of the course materials and exam to reflect the
increasing complexity of exempt market products and the rapid
development of the exempt market across Canada. The new EMP
Course has updated information on key industry sectors and
common exempt market product structures, and has significantly
enhanced content dealing with regulatory obligations, including
know your client, know your product, suitability assessments
and dealing with clients. The updated EMP Course will benefit
members of the PCMA and students of IFSE, as well as the private
capital / exempt market industry across Canada.
The new course is available online and includes interactive
exercises and quizzes as well as access to a full sample exam and
answer keys to assist with student learning and exam preparation.
The new examination format is administered and delivered by IFSE
Institute’s new computer-based testing partner, Pearson VUE.
This new technology platform continues IFSE’s high standards
for exam administration and provides IFSE’s EMP students with
greater availability in exam dates, times, and locations as well as
quicker turnaround times for exam results.
