The com­mis­sion will open four cour­ses — in North­ern, Cen­tral, South­ern and Eastern Tai­wan – that are open to 100 stu­dents each, FSC Chair­man Wil­liam Tseng ( ) said yes­ter­day.

Upon com­plet­ing the course, each stu­dent will be paid for at­ten­dance hours based on their fi­nal exam scores.

The hourly stipend will range be­tween NT$100 and NT$130, so that earn­ings range be­tween NT$21,600 and NT$28,000 for the 216-hour course.

The FSC will also coun­sel alumni in­ter­ested in earn­ing pro­fes­sional cer­ti­fi­ca­tion in fi­nan­cial ser­vices, Tseng said.

Cour­ses and stu­dent stipends will be cov­ered by NT$ 100 mil­lion in dona­tions from the fi­nan­cial sec­tor, where prof­its reached a record high last year.
