Our training program aims to offer two paid opportunities to up to four veterans, first responders, and military spouses each year. Candidates will be introduced to back office and operations functions, sales-trading, and compliance. Candidates will be expected to work towards licensing throughout their training with understanding that licensing will be required in order to become a full-time member of the team post candidacy.
