Perhaps it’s the changing leaves or the nostalgic smell of pumpkin pie wafting through the office, but this fall has Solomon Exam Prep reflecting on the past year.

In particular, we’d like to look back on the MSRB’s launch of the Municipal Advisor Representative Qualification Exam—commonly known as the Series 50 exam. The MSRB officially launched this exam in 2016, but the exam wasn’t mandatory for municipal advisors until September 12, 2017.

The first exam of its kind and a huge success, the MSRB reports that more than 3,000 individuals passed the Series 50 exam before the September 12 deadline—and over 22% of those new municipal advisors used Solomon Exam Prep to study and pass their Series 50 exam.

The MSRB still has big plans coming down the line. The municipal securities regulator intends to launch the brand new Municipal Advisor Principal Exam (Series 54) in 2019.  And when it does, like with the Series 50, Solomon Exam Prep will be ready with another robust study program to help individuals pass this new municipal supervisory exam quickly and painlessly.

If you’d like a free consultation with Solomon about your firm’s licensing and registration program or you’d like to set one up, please call us at 503-601-0212 or email Jeremy@SolomonExamPrep.Com.

In the meantime, Solomon Exam Prep would like to extend a congratulations to the 3,000 and counting municipal advisors who passed the Series 50 this past year. Treat yourself to a slice of pumpkin pie.
