Effective Continual Professional Development (CPD) planning is vitally important to ensure that the activities you undertake as part of your personal development are relevant.

Every financial planner is required to complete at least 35 hours of CPD activity each year.  How much of that time is effective and how much of it is spent listening to the same people tell you the same things? Are you really learning anything new? 

We can help identify appropriate training needs with the objective of helping you get better at what you do.


We are very pleased to be working in collaboration with colleagues at Practical Financial Exams Limited (PFE) in the development of advanced training materials and assessment of their SQA Level 9 (equivalent of OFQUAL Level 6) Practical Investment Planning qualification.
