Like every year, The Canadian Securities Institute is having a 20% coupon off their certification.
It's a great time to complete the Canadian security course for those in finance.

The exam is relatively easy to complete, and its a great way to start a career in a financial institution.

I passed the certification last year, don't hesitate to ask me question!

Yes, anyone can complete this exam.
I have a bachelor in finance, and honestly I skimmed trough the notes and passed the exam.
This certification is relatively easy.
A joke compared to CFA, FRM.
This certification should help you get a first job.

Is this a general offer, or some kind of referral link? I don't see it anywhere on their website.

This is a general offer.
Since I passed the course, CSI send me an email to invite other people to pass the test.
I got the 20% off last year thanks to someone here on RFD, I tought I do the same.

Well if you have to be invited by someone then it is not a "general offer", it is "invitation-only". It actually looks very much like a referral, because of the unique URL. Do you benefit in some way from signups via your link?

As far as I know, the original email receivers don't get referral benefit forwarding this email. He's just doing a favor.

yeah, this isn't like some retail viral marketing scheme where op will get referral cash. plus, even though its against the rules, i dont think in this situation you should care... if you were looking to do this test, any savings is great, and it will pay itself off easily.

This is not a refferal since I don't get a penny out of this.
I'm only passing this out since someone on RFD helped me get this certification at lower cost last year.

Depends on what you do. I am an INSEAD alum and have a lot of M&A experience in London. I finally caved in and a took an offer with a Canadian bank (though I really miss London)

I am making more than a million per year (gross including options/taxable benefits). It's all about your education & experience. You have to make yourself stand out from the crowd. You also have to know when to tell your employer to kiss your ass if they don't pony up when negotiating your salary.
