Event Details


As the regulator expects firms to have role-specific training in place that provides a high degree of confidence that conduct rule breaches will be identified, a new and different approach to Conduct Rules training is required. But creating your own SM&CR Conduct Rules training in line with the FCA expectations stipulated in COCON 2.3 FCA Handbook takes time. Firms will need to plan, research, design, write, create and deliver practical sessions, with an emphasis on job role-specific training by 31st March 2021!

That’s why PIMFA has partnered with City HR to create a cost effective,  ‘Train the Trainer’ workshop and toolkit that takes all the hard work away from you – allowing you to focus on delivery only.

Our unique solution comprises of two distinct offerings:

1.  Half-day ‘Train the Trainer’ virtual workshop

An experiential learning session that provides you with first-hand experience of the programme and how the training can be adapted for your firm. Our faculty of experienced HR professionals and an employment partner of a law firm specialising in SMCR will explain in detail how you can use our well-designed, easy-to-follow, professionally written training course materials to deliver effective Conduct Rules training to an unlimited number of your staff.

2. The toolkit

Immediately after the workshop, we provide you with a comprehensive toolkit that includes PowerPoint slides, training notes, SM&CR explainer videos, practical case studies, delegate handouts which can be aligned to your organisation.

This training workshop and toolkit is ideal for firms that want to:

• Feel confident you have delivered a high standard training course in line with the FCA’s requirements
• Train all certified staff on the Conduct Rules by 31st March 2021
• Provide a refresher Conduct Rules training session for senior managers
• Tailor their firms Conduct Rules training to specific staff job roles
• Train an unlimited number of your staff on the Conduct Rules for a single, one off payment
• Receive fully editable training course materials that can be personalised by you for your firm
• Utilise the SM&CR resources that are used in over 30 banks and Building Societies
• Reproduce or copy, at no extra cost, the materials within the toolkit as many times as you require them.*

*You or your firm may not copy the whole or any part of the material for sale or re-distribution
