Toronto-based startup Learnedly Canada Inc. has launched the ETF Proficiency Course, a training program that provides mutual fund representatives with the proficiency requirements necessary to offer ETFs to clients.

The program follows the curriculum requirements set out by the Mutual Fund Dealers Association of Canada.

“ETFs are a growing part of the investment landscape for Canadians,” says John Waldron, Learnedly’s founder, in a statement. “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 course is mobile accessible, and can be completed on a smartphone or tablet by 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.”
