About Us

Empire Stockbroker Training Institute was formed in 1998. Prior to that, the partners (Rueben Martinez and Steven Rice) had been teaching classes and tutoring for one of the largest broker-dealers on Long Island and New York City. Taking the information learned over the years, the partners wrote their own books and developed stockbroker courses that would be complete and easy to understand. Initially the school was focused on the most popular exams like the Series 7 and Series 63. As more and more brokerage firms started sending students our way, we had to get a larger classroom, teach day and evening courses, and expand the number of courses taught. Soon afterwards, Empire created more books and courses and started teaching the Series 7, Series 63, Series 65, Series 66, Series 24, Series 4, and Series 11.

All books were created by Steven M. Rice and Rueben Martinez

Each year (or more if necessary), we update our books and online testing programs to keep up with any changes made to the real exams. We strive to make our books not only accurate but easy to understand. Unlike other test training manuals, changes have to be made quite often to securities training manuals to keep up with changes in law from new administrations, yearly changes in retirement plans, tax brackets, and so on.

Our online tutoring has become much more popular during the Covid 19 pandemic. We can set up a time that will fit your needs. Please feel free to contact us at the number below for more information or you can use our tutoring form.
