What is a Series 7 License? A Series 7 license qualifies a candidate for the solicitation, purchase, and/or sale of all securities products, including corporate securities, municipal securities, municipal fund securities, options, direct participation programs, investment company products, and variable contracts. Questions on the exam are designed to test a candidate's knowledge and skills needed for ongoing success as a General Securities Registered Representative.

By successfully passing the Series 7 exam, you will be qualified by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) as a Registered Representative of a broker-dealer in the United States - often referred to as a "Stockbroker".

About The SIE: Exam Requirements And Information

The SIE is an introductory-level exam that assesses a candidate's knowledge of basic securities industry information and concepts fundamental to working in the industry, such as types of products and their risks, the structure of the securities industry markets, regulatory agencies and their functions, and prohibited practices.

The Essentials exam is open to anyone aged 18 or older, including students and prospective candidates interested in demonstrating basic industry knowledge to potential employers. Association with a firm is not required, and individuals are permitted to take the exam before or after associating with a firm.

There are no pre-requisites to taking the Securities Industry Essentials Exam, and once you pass your SIE exam, you have one full year to study for and pass your Series 7 exam.

How To Get A Series 7 License

Candidates must take several steps before receiving their Series 7 license and becoming a stockbroker. You can do many of these at your own pace, so you can work toward your Series 7 license on a timeline that works for your needs. Steps include:
  • Prepare for and Take the SIE
    The SIE is a new exam designed by FINRA to reduce subject matter redundancy between current Series exams. Questions on the SIE exam test your general knowledge of financial activities.

    You can choose to take the SIE either before or after your Top Off exam. However, many people find it much easier to obtain sponsorship — a required step before registering for the Series 7 exam — after they've passed their SIE exam.
  • Obtain a Sponsorship by a FINRA Member Firm
    Before you can register for your Series 7 exam, FINRA requires you to be associated with and sponsored by a FINRA or self-regulatory organization member firm. Your firm will register you for the exam by filling out a Form U4 (Uniform Application for Securities Industry Registration or Transfer Form) through the FINRA website. At this time, you'll be fingerprinted and undergo a background check.
  • Study for the Series 7 Exam
    After your sponsorship, you can start studying to take your Series 7 Top Off exam, either before or after passing your SIE. It covers numerous topics related to a stockbroker's four main job functions. To ace your exam, you'll need a comprehensive study plan that accounts for each of its four aspects. At AB Training Center, we provide all the tools and support necessary for outstanding success, including live and online seminars, online study guides, practice tests, printed materials and more.
  • Pass the Exam to Receive Your Series 7 Licence
    You'll need a score of 72 percent or better to pass your Series 7 exam and receive your license.
