Booster – Making Training and Competence work for you


 20th November 2020  10.00am – 11.00am

Book on this session 20th November 2020 – Your opportunity to learn more about the FCA’s expectations on training and maintaining staff competence following the introduction of the Senior Managers & Certification Regime (SM&CR) for solo-regulated firms, Code of Conduct (COCON) and Conduct Rules.

A must for Senior Managers, Executive Board Directors, Non-Executive Directors, Risk/Compliance staff, HR/People staff, Certified staff and individuals who have responsibility for training and delivery and/or people strategy within the firm.

As a consequence of the global Coronavirus pandemic, firms have embraced the concept of remote working. However, this in itself has the potential to increase the risk of staff misconduct and makes it even more important that staff are competent and appropriately supervised. It is therefore essential that Senior Managers and relevant staff are aware of the potential risks arising from inadequate training and competence arrangements at their firms, and act now to make any required changes.

This Booster session is aimed at helping you understand how the FCA’s recent regulatory reforms could impact your firms existing training and competence arrangements, and highlight the things you need to be thinking about as part of your day-to-day regulatory obligations in order to benchmark your current training and competence activities.

The content will cover:

  • Assessing competence, training and maintaining competence
  • Requirements for supervision and supervisors
  • Evidencing and record keeping
  • Specific knowledge and competence requirements relating to the Insurance Distribution Directive (IDD)
  • The consequences of not taking this seriously
  • Questions and answers
