Hundreds of advisers look to sign up for our Academy

Hundreds of advisers have already registered their interest in joining the Money Marketing Academy.

Money Marketing has announced it will host a training academy to help our readers achieve the benchmark qualifications required by the retail distribution review.

The Money Marketing Academy, to be run in partnership with the Chartered Insurance Institute, will host dedicated training days and residential training and revision courses for each module of the CII’s diploma in financial planning, which will also include onsite exam sittings.

Academy members will have access to free or heavily discounted supplementary training materials and a dedicated website with an interactive forum for members to ask questions and seek or offer support.

Under the retail distribution review, all advisers must gain a QCF level four qualification by December 31, 2012 to continue advising.

Money Marketing will formally launch the Academy on March 22 at the CII Great Hall in Aldermanbury, London and all advisers are invited to attend.
CII director of financial services markets Steve Jenkins says: “Thorough preparation is the key to success and I would enc-ourage advisers to take adv-antage of the wide variety of training and learning materials that the programme will offer.”

Advisers interested in joining the Academy should email their contact details to
