St. Petersburg, Florida (PRWEB) September 7, 2007
Capitalizing on both the demand for registered representatives in the financial services industry and the need for an alternative pathway for individuals to become securities licensed, BrokerTrainingSchool.com, Inc. has begun accepting students for securities licensing training.
"BTS.com will help individuals- teachers, real estate agents, accountants and others that are intrigued by the opportunities in financial services but find the current pathway to becoming an investment professional too onerous," stated Paul A. Werlin, President of BTS.com. "In addition, BTS.com will help fulfill the widespread demand for new FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc., formerly known as the NASD) licensed professionals in all segments of the securities industry".
Under current federal and state regulations, in order to take FINRA licensing examinations, a person must become an employee and be sponsored by an FINRA member firm and commit to study programs requiring inconvenient time commitments and travel. BTS.com will provide comprehensive training to individuals seeking these licenses without having to quit their current jobs, and receive the training and support they need at their own pace at home and on their own computer.
"BTS.com will breakdown the barriers that make it hard for individuals to become licensed stockbrokers without the necessity of quitting their current job, finding a new job with a brokerage firm, and receive placement help to begin their career as an investment professional," Werlin stated. James Nonnengard, President of Colonial Brokerage, Inc. in Montgomery AL, confirmed the need for BTS.com. "There is both a strong demand for new registered representatives, as well as considerable interest from career-changers to become registered representatives. But we have found that many successful professionals, some with strong links in their communities, turn away from making this change because they aren't ready to quit their current job or commit to training programs with inflexible schedules. BTS.com will make it so much easier for these individuals to become licensed and enter the industry."
BTS.com will initially provide training for FINRA series 6, 7, 66, 65 and 63. Other training will be provided at a later date. Information about BTS.com's products and services can be found on their website, BrokerTainingSchool.com. BTS.com is currently accepting a limited number of students and expects to expand their student body within the next 90 days.
