The 2018 FINRA Exam Restructuring is right around the corner, and it means changes for more than the exams themselves. FINRA allows anyone 18 and older to take the new Securities Industry Essentials Exam (SIE). That means you can take the SIE exam without being employed by a FINRA member firm.
This makes it a lot easier for people to enter the securities industry, but it also means that FINRA needs a new way for individuals to register for the SIE.
TESS stands for Test Enrollment Services System.
Through TESS you can request an exam, make payments, schedule an appointment, and view your test results. Launching on October 1st, TESS is built specifically for individuals to register for their exams. Eligibility is simple: you must be over 18, have a social security number, and not already be registered in Web CRD.
Once you’re registered, it’s easy to enroll for exams. And if you’re already registered with Web CRD, your credentials will allow you to access TESS as well. Within 72 hours of completing an exam, TESS will display the exam result and the test date under the “My Exams” section.
Taking FINRA exams is easy with TESS!
