The Institute of Financial Services is to offer mortgage advisers the chance to maintain competence online.
The IFS says it is working in partnership with Absolutely Training to introduce intermediaries to its e-learning services claiming the latest industry surveys estimate that in only two years the number of compliance teams using e-learning solutions has increased by almost 200%.
The Competence Maintenance Tool (Cmt) will feature a range of scenarios mortgage advisers can tailor according to their continuing professional needs.
“When we launched CeMAP the industry was self-regulating,” says Mark Roberts of the IFS, “Today, we are dealing with a regulatory environment that moves faster, reaches deeper, and bites harder than ever before. Our new online competency solution provides advisers with a powerful, interactive platform that matches the pace of regulation.”
