If you are licensed to sell mutual funds and variable annuities, but have limited sales experience, you will likely spend one week training in Mississauga. This training will help you develop a better understanding of the securities business, our firm’s philosophy and way of doing business, clients and their needs, and key investments. There is also an introduction to important applications of the Edward Jones systems.
This will most likely be followed by seven weeks of hands-on training in a branch office followed by an additional week in Mississauga. The determination of which training process best suits you will ultimately be based on your individual qualifications, background and experience.
