The Philippine Stock Exchange, Inc. (PSE) and its partner school De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde, Inc.’s (DLS-CSB) School of Professional and Continuing Education (SPaCE) will launch the first online Certified Securities Specialist Course (CSSC) on June 26 to offer investors and those looking to have careers in the stock market an opportunity to deepen their financial markets acumen and boost professional credibility.

“This is our fourth year in partnership with DLS-CSB and our first time to hold an online version of the CSSC. We are grateful to DLS-CSB for having the same resolve to pursue this program and recalibrate it in the most flexible manner to cater to the changing requirements of our target enrollees given today’s challenges,” said PSE President and CEO Ramon S. Monzon.

The Certified Securities Specialist Course is a certification program that involves a 124-hour continuing education on financial market theories, valuation techniques and analysis, investment portfolio management, ethics, regulations, and market dynamics among others. The CSSC curriculum was conceptualized and designed by PSE, seasoned market practitioners and industry experts.

“We have been seeing a surge in the number of new retail investors since the start of the pandemic. While there are free basic stock market courses available, we recommend the CSSC to investors who want to develop their analysis and trading skills and those who want to build their credentials as stock market professionals,” Mr. Monzon added.

The enrollment period for the first online CSSC is from June 1 to June 23, 2021.

The DLS-CSB’s CSSC will be held every Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and will run from June 26 to December 18, 2021.
