The course was designed by the PSE, market practitioners, and industry experts. It will be offered through CSB›s School of Professional and Continuing Education. 

“This is our fourth year in partnership with CSB and our first time to hold an online version of the CSSC,” Ramon S. Monzon, president and chief executive officer of the PSE, said in a statement.
