Feedback on Foran Securities Seminars

Re: Foran Canadian Securities - Exam One Preparation Seminar
Instructor: Ron Foran, Toronto

I thoroughly enjoyed the Foran Seminar and found it very helpful (I did successfully complete the course on the first attempt.) I found that more than anything the seminar allowed me to recognize what would be asked of me on the exam. Since I do not have any experience as of yet (new university graduate) I found that it also allowed an insight into the business not seen at School. I will be attending future Foran Seminars, the next will be the CPH one day event…Thanks again for all your help and please send Ron my highest compliments on getting me through the course!!

The seminar was amazing. You've exceeded my expectation, and your organization will be glad to know that I passed the CSC1 with flying colours. Thank you for providing a clear and insight(ful) course. I am looking forward to the CSC2 seminar.

This seminar helped me to better organize the information and topics required to pass the CSC. It also helped me to understand key questions and concepts. Overall, I think it was a wise investment of time and money.

I attended the CSC exam 1 prep course facilitated by Ron Foran in March 2003. I found the course to be excellent and Ron's many ways of making the students remember the material most helpful. I truly felt the time and money spent was most worthwhile. I felt confident and was successful with my first attempt at this exam.

I found the courses to be very helpful and they made clear a lot of things I had not quite grasped the concept of. As a teacher, I found that the way Ron explained things made it easier and more memorable than just reading the book. His memory aids, that at first I thought were kind of silly, are one of the best teaching tools he could use, and are easy to remember for that very reason.

I learned more in the 3-day seminar than I did studying for myself for 4 months. Ron was an excellent teacher, and helped with learning techniques to remember the material. (The program) was informative and reduced study time.

Just what it was described to do - provide concentrated overview of course material and relate it to examination.

I passed the exam, which is the best indicator of the seminar's effectiveness. I found the memory aids and the repetition especially effective.

The course helped concentrate on areas and subjects the I may have not directed sufficient time to. (Ron) was knowledgeable, planned the two days well and was honest in answering questions - a true benefit in passing the course!

I found that Ron did a great job in preparing us however self study is also key. The only advice I would give Ron is to keep his terrific sense of humour while he is teaching, it made the day go by so much quicker with such dry material to cover.

Yes I did thoroughly enjoy the PDO seminar. It totally met my expectations (since I had taken one before and knew they were great) and feel it was a LARGE contributor to my PASSING!!

I actually did quite well and thank Ron very much for preparing me so well for the exam. I have already encouraged a few of my staff to sign up for Foran courses. Not only did I pass but I feel I can apply my knowledge on a daily basis. Due to the exhaustive, interesting (and even funny!) discussions, I have a deeper understand of the material.

As I mentioned to Ron, I feel Foran courses are so important to the industry and appreciated by those of us that take them since we are trying so hard to juggle so many priorities at work and at home.... thanks for the helping hand.
Pass my warm appreciation onto Ron and the staff that support his efforts.

Instructor: Ron Foran, Toronto

I felt that this was a great way to help me actually learn the material, rather than to just pass the exams. I enjoy having a full understanding of the subject matter. I have been really pleased with your service overall, especially the courtesy calls prior to attending and the follow up emails like such. You run a great business and I wouldn't change a thing!
