Fairstone Financial, a UK-based financial management firm, has launched new online training academy to support advisors who want to achieve individual chartered status.
The platform has been designed to support the professional development of the firm’s financial advisors.
The company has partnered with online learning provider Redmill IQ to develop the structured training programme to help advisers towards Chartered status, two grades above the minimum.
Offered through a tailored web-based technology platform, the academy programme can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from any PC, smart phone or tablet and from across in the world.
The programme enables advisers to download e-books, undertake video tuition, quizzes and timed exams as well as take part in classroom training with technical specialists.
The move follows the grant of Corporate Chartered status to Fairstone by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII).
Fairstone Group CEO Lee Hartley said: "The Fairstone Academy will be the foundation for our business as we look ahead to a future where a large proportion of advisers attain Chartered status.
"We are delighted to launch our new Academy, which will help to ensure that advisers within Fairstone are trained and qualified to the highest standards.
"The continued professional development of our advisers is incredibly important to us, and the academy will arm them with the tools they need to ensure that we can offer a truly superior service to all our clients, nationwide," he added.
Redmill IQ director and head of training Doug Barton told Bdaily: "By working in partnership with Fairstone, we have developed an educational tool which will not only add value to clients of Fairstone, but will also help advisers to increase their earning potential through the attainment of Chartered status."
