Hi everyone:

 
I'm still considering the EJ opportunity and had questions regarding training. I understand the company issues a tablet laptop. Can someone tell me the specifics of the study period? Are all the lessons for studying done on the computer? Is there a test at the end of each week that's done via the tablet? Do they have the ability to monitor the materials you've studied? Also, what besides studying is expected during this time besides the 25 leads?
 
Thanks.

According to the calendars on our system, the study program is 10 weeks long and included studying for your series 66.  There are tests at the end of each chapter.  Those tests are taken, I would assume it hasn't changed, on the laptop.  They used to issue two big binders that had all the study material in them.  I'm not sure if they do that any longer.  One of the other new Jones guys will have to help with that one.  Yes, they will monitor your exams during the training period and probably call you to discuss if necessary.  There are conference calls, mentor training, the 25 contacts you mentioned, and some other misc stuff that you will be expected to do.  Mostly though it's time to focus on studying.

I start training with EDJ August 25 so feel free to PM me with any questions you have. I have recieved my tablet and printer...no binders anymore. It appears everything is online.

Spiff is right. Everything is on the tablet in a program that has the whole study material for the 7 organized into daily requirements. Everything is locked until you complete the designated requirement, ie you have to read the chapter to open up the quiz, do the quiz to open the exam and do the exam to open up the next chapter. It makes the whole process very easy to go through and helps you stay organized and on calendar. I would suggest when you get you tablet play around with it as much as possible before you start studying because you won't have much time for a learning curve when you are required to stay on calendar. If you are really ambitious (or smart) you will start doing some of the earlier chapters asap to build in a studying buffer. You can't log the hours for pay but it may save you in the long run. I came down with a horrible ear infection half way through the study period and eventually went to the hospital due to a severe penicillin allergy. If I didn't have the buffer zone built in I probably couldn't have caught up but because I did I was able to take a couple days of to rest.

A lot more info than was asked for but you can decide whether or not it was superfluous.

BTW I have finished the study material and am taking the 7 the day after tomorrow. FINALLY!

Good luck to you guys.
