Website Wizard Learning is preparing itself to meet the challenges thrown up by changes to the training and competency regime says founder-owner Mike Goldsmith.
Currently, the website allows members to brush up on their AFPC knowledge through daily quizzes and compete for top scores in knowledge against other members.
Goldsmith says he is already developing new pages that will focus on savings and investments to be launched in a couple of months.
"Beyond that there is the ongoing testing model and the site will be developed to meet that change," he says.
The idea of testing AFPC or supporting ongoing standards requirements through brief daily quizzes is hopefully something that IFAs will find slightly more interesting, he adds.
FSA Consultation Paper 194 Amendments to the Training and Competency Sourcebook was published earlier this month asking for submissions by 30 November.
The paper proposes that the Skills Council for Financial Services keep a list of "appropriate" examinations to help firms assess competence among staff.
