MASTER: Protection

*Back by popular demand*

We know the additional rules introduced via the Insurance Distribution Directive can be challenging; trying to find 15 hours of insurance and protection specific training isn’t top of everyone’s 2021 agenda. But is required.

We’ve therefore created a couple of MASTERclasses, designed to help you meet a chunk of this requirement, but bringing you the latest trends, and a range of themes within the world of protection, to ensure you are genuinely gaining some insight and development, and not just ticking that CPD box.

A range of speakers will help you view protection and insurance planning in a new light and, who knows, may even get you excited to embrace the IDD requirements…
