Time running out for advisers on funding
The “Train to Gain” funding will no longer be available after August 2010.
Until then some advisers may be eligible to have two thirds of the cost of obtaining ISO 22222 certification paid for by the Government.
This means advisers pay a fee of £437.50 for certification instead of the usual £1,375.
Michelle Hoskin, business development director at Standards International said, “The clock is ticking for advisers who want help with the costs of achieving ISO 22222. Train to Gain funding has made a considerable difference to the overall cost for those who have attained what is increasingly being considered a vital tool in improving advisers businesses.
Numerous advisers have already benefited from the scheme and we hope that many more will do so before the funding runs out in a few months time.”
Government Minister for Skills Kevin Brennan MP said of the scheme, “Thousands of businesses and employees have benefited from the improved skills delivered by our Train to Gain programme. This is crucial for the long term strength of the economy and the ability of individuals to fulfil their potential.”
