Thread Summary
If you registered for a previous session but did not finish, you need to pretend to create A new account (with same email).

They will ask for old password and you will need to choose a new one.

If you try to login with existing account, it won’t work and won’t tell you that is the problem.

Thanks for sharing this, OP. Everyone should take a course on personal finance whether it be this one or another (albeit this one is free so can't beat the price) ... I'll be asking my kids to enroll during this period of downtime. No offense to school systems, but it's lacking in this type of course which will benefit them for a lifetime more than some other dubious courses.

Thank you OP. Definitely worth it. As a Desautels alumnus, shout out to all these wonderful profs (was super lucky to have class with every single one of them) , AND the MVP Desmond!

Each full module has 2 to 4 submodules that I would estimate at approx 10 minutes each (sub modules). Each full module will also be followed by a test of 10 questions. You have to make a minimum of 80% on each test to pass. You recive your certificate once all tests are complete.

I am not sure what is there to learn about personal finance..

1- put all money into savings and move them when promo is over, Tangerine, EQ, Simplii, etc..
2- get a high rewards CC cash back, 2% RWE, or 1.5% BMO when rogers get nerfed
3- depending on ur income taxes, if you live in QC and > 80000k, invest the rest and max oup RRSP.
4- Live in your parent's house until you pay your entire debt or longer
5- Stop going out and spending money away for non essential stuffs
6- Ask your gf to split the resto bill or find a new one who is willing to
7- Cancel all your subscriptions unless for cellphones, which you need to make sure you have a retention deal
8- Build a gym at home, no reason why you need to workout in a gym
9- spend time on RFD
10- become familiar with torrents
