  • Part 2 of Series 16 (L1)
  • Series 86 (L1 + L2)
  • Series 65 (Charterholders)
  • IARD State Competency exams (Charterholders)

I am dealing with this right now (or will be shortly).  Does anyone know how the process work?  Do you just apply for a waiver for the 65 and you are issued the license once it is approved?

Pay close attention to the people who don't clap when you win.
