Learnedly launches ETF Proficiency Course for Canadian mutual fund dealer representatives


Learnedly has launched the ETF Proficiency Course, an exchange traded funds (ETF) training course that follows the curriculum requirements set out by the Mutual Fund Dealers Association of Canada (MFDA) allowing mutual fund representatives to satisfy the proficiency requirements to offer ETFs to clients.

“ETFs are a growing part of the investment landscape for Canadians,” says John Waldron, Learnedly’s founder. “We created this course to help more financial professionals have meaningful discussions with their clients about ETFs and how they can fit in a client’s overall investment strategy.”
The online and video-based course is mobile accessible, catering to the needs of busy financial professionals who prefer to learn when it fits their schedule. The videos are short, and the entire course can be completed on a smartphone or tablet – even offline – using Learnedly’s mobile app for iOS and Android devices.
“Our ETF Proficiency Course is another example of how Learnedly is using technology to simplify industry training and enhance the learning experience for Canadian financial professionals,” says Waldron. “Every video is just three clicks away with the Learnedly app, so our learners can start and stop the course whenever they have two or three minutes to spare. We are putting the learner in control.”
Upon completing the course, the learner will receive a digital certificate secured with blockchain technology, which an employer can easily verify with one-click authentication. When a certificate is issued, it generates a 64-alphanumeric character password which is securely stored on an encrypted blockchain ledger, preventing the use of altered or fake credentials.
