Tenet has been granted prior learning accreditation with the Chartered Insurance Institute allowing the company to develop, administer and mark an alternative to the CII’s JO5 exam module.
The alternative module gains credits towards the CII’s diploma in financial planning.
Tenet advisers will receive tailored course and study materials, and will be able to sit the exam on a monthly basis for less than a third of the usual cost with Tenet bearing most of the cost.
Tenet’s training team has been authorised to take on face to face and tutoring assessment, including in an IFA’s office where appropriate.
Distribution and development director Keith Richards (pictured) says: “It is a further demonstration of our continuing investment in providing practical help and guidance to achieve the required qualification standards in the run-up to RDR.
“The CII accreditation is a fitting reward for the hard work put in by our training department and recognition of our dedication to the highest standards of training provision and practical support.”
Personal Finance Society CEO Fay Goddard says: “It takes commitment and significant investment to develop an accredited proposition for studying and assessing qualifications. I am sure this in-house offering will be very much appreciated by Tenet’s clients.”
