Wake Tech has partnered with Fidelity Investments and Securities Training Corporation to offer an online preparation course for the Securities Industry Essentials® (SIE) Exam. The cost of course materials is fully covered by the sponsorship, and qualifying students can also obtain full tuition reimbursement.
The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) provides the SIE Exam to assess prospective securities industry professionals' knowledge of basic industry information and fundamental concepts, such as types of products and their risks, the structure of securities industry markets, regulatory agencies and their functions and prohibited practices.
Passing the SIE Exam is only the first required step toward working in the securities industry; individuals must also be associated with a FINRA member firm and pass a qualification exam specific to the type of business in which they work.

No experience working in the securities industry nor affiliation with a FINRA member firm is required to take the SIE Exam.
