About Us

Empire Stockbroker Training Institute was formed in 1998. Prior to that, the partners 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 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
