COVID-19 Update

As a result of recent government advice, the CII has announced that all events planned during Q2 2020 should be postponed with immediate effect.

We hope to be able to reschedule this workshop later in the year and will contact members with full details once this has been arranged. If you have any questions please contact Susan Stamp at secretary@sussexcii.org.uk.

For a full copy of the CII announcement, including advice regarding exams due to be taken in April, please click here.

Led by John Trayner, a CII Approved Trainer, this intensive workshop will work through the case studies that will be examined in the April 2020 sitting.

The exam is based on two narrative case studies that will be issued approximately two weeks before the exam. Typically one is about a couple with young children and the other is concerned with a couple in their 60s who have either retired or are on the verge of doing so. You will also be given each couple’s financial objectives.

The exam tests your ability to give advice so will cover:

  • what additional information you need to give advice

  • what options are available that would enable the client to meet their objectives

  • the advantages and disadvantages of the different options

  • what you would recommend together with a justification

  • an explanation of the product you have recommended

  • what you would discuss at a future review

The workshop will work though the case studies as a group to identify the clients' objectives, the likely questions, how they should be answered and to revise the technical points arising from these questions.

The session takes place at K2 Leisure Centre, Crawley and opens for registration at 9.00am for a 9.30am start and ends at 4.30pm, providing six hours' CPD. It costs £80 for members (non-members £100).

The course includes all tuition, tea/coffee on arrival and during formal breaks and a buffet lunch. If you would like to join us for this event, please click on the Book Now button below.

About our speaker
John has over 40 years’ experience in insurance and financial services. Not surprisingly most of his former employers no longer exist because of mergers and takeovers. For example he joined Leeds Permanent Building Society in 1986 and at retirement was working for Lloyds Banking Group even though he’d never changed employers! The last 15 years were spent in the training department specialising in professional exams.

Not wishing to spend retirement watching daytime TV he decided to become a freelance trainer specialising in helping people to pass the CII’s Financial Services exams.

John is a Chartered Insurance Practitioner and a Fellow of both the Chartered Insurance Institute and the Personal Finance Society.
