Sense Network invests in new learning services

Sense Network has announced it is investing in its learning services with two new offerings to members.

It is adding new adviser forums, technical seminars and practical workshops to its 2013 Sense Development programme in order to address critical business, advice and technical training needs.

It is also providing free access to the Chartered Insurance Institute’s Financial and Mortgage Assess learning and CPD recording system for all members.

Sense Network commercial director says: “Our members are committed to providing quality independent advice and we understand that having access to the very best training events and learning resources is a key element in that.

“We decided to invest in an online learning system because our advisers told us that although they value face to face events, they also need to be able to access quality online learning resources and to record their CPD activities. We chose the CII system because it provides high quality learning and testing materials and because it links seamlessly with the CII for SPS renewals.”

CII director of financial services and insurance markets Steve Jenkins adds: “As professionals the need for financial advisers to keep their knowledge and skills up-to-date has never been more important and high quality CPD is an essential element of this. Therefore I am delighted that Sense Network as a leading firm is investing strongly in the needs of their members through systems such as the CII’s Financial and Mortgage Assess.”
