The pilot consists of 20 courses for several of the eight J0 diploma exams, with a focus on J01 due to the number of advisers who have indicated they will take the exam in April. Courses are open to everyone within the financial services industry, cost £99 plus VAT and will all be run by experienced and accredited trainers.
New Model Business Academy managing director Steve Braidford says: “Following a fantastic response from our membership we felt it was imperative to start supporting those advisers who need to get their diploma before the current 2012 deadline. Our aim is to offer many more courses in an increased number of areas, throughout the UK. We want to be the first place that advisers come to for help in becoming RDR ready.
