Release Notes: Insider Trading


Emtrain is proud to introduce a brand new course, Insider Trading, released 9/3/2014. This course was created in conjunction with expert Tim Crudo, a former Chief of the Securities Fraud Section of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in San Francisco. This course provides an overview of the types of violations that can result in an insider trading indictment and conviction, and how to avoid potentially illegal trades. After taking this course, you will know:

  • Public and non-public information
  • Who is considered an insider
  • Tipper/tippee liability
  • Civil and Criminal penalties for insider trading violations.


The examples and case studies presented in the course are based on recent insider trading scandals, and include actual recordings from investigations and depositions. Running approximately 25 to 30 minutes, Insider Trading is a Level 60 course.
