Default FSA Retirement: Start with Social Insurance or Financial Economics Module?

(Please let me know also if there might be a better place to post this).

I'm starting to work through the FSA requirements in Canada. Are all the module courses just like FAP (courses with end of module exercises, nothing more/less?).

Which of the two is better to start with (as the "recommended path" online says they can be done in either order)?

I noticed the replacement of the Financial Economics Module with the FSA requirements change, I'm guessing it will just translate to the Pension Projections Module if I pass it before 2020?

Yes all modules are similar - course + exercise.

Order of difficulty from easiest to hardest: SI, ERM, FE (in my opinion)

It doesn't matter what order you do them in. I did ERM, SI, FE.

When you start a module I really recommend you just sit down 2 or 3 weeks and put your head to it. Then you don't have to worry about anything changing. I doubt anything will be changing for these modules since they already have to deal with so many big changes in the curriculum, these modules for RET surely will stay the same.
