These qualifications provide learners with the fundamental skills for advice provision along with an understanding of policies, procedures, and compliance requirements for providing generalist and specialist advice. In the Extended Certificate the learner will also understand the importance and application of continuing professional development. These qualifications provide an entry route for those new to the advice sector to attain an industry standard accredited qualification, and an opportunity for existing advisers to re-fresh and gain accreditation for their knowledge and skills.
