Personal Touch Financial Services has designed an online tool to help new and existing members improve their knowledge of FSA principles and regulation.

Training development manager Andy Greaves says the tool offers interactive demonstrations which members can work through in their own time. It covers product knowledge as well as compliance.

Greaves says: “We decided to develop the online training centre in order to support the face-to-face training we do. It enables people to study at their own pace and leisure. People can do an online test and get an immediate result.”
