mortgage ASSESS allows you to assess the knowledge and competence of your staff, instantly accessing all the core training materials necessary for their further development and ultimately ensuring they are providing the best possible advice according to FSA regulations.
Your compliance/training administrator
mortgage ASSESS makes the administration of training and development straightforward. It facilitates company reporting through its management information as well as enabling the tracking and record-keeping of the achievements of individuals within the organisation. It also allows records to be produced for compliance supervision and auditing.
mortgage ASSESS provides advisers (including MAQ and CeMAP holders), back office staff, supervisors and managers with the tools they need to develop their knowledge and ability as mortgage professionals. Whether they need to explore new areas of learning or simply refresh their existing knowledge, the easy-to-navigate assessment and technical learning materials allow them to identify and meet their development needs. It is simple to use and provides the technical information needed without confusing the user or being condescending to the more experienced adviser.

Life Insurance Association
The LIA is a professional body dedicated to supporting the activities of its members in all areas of the personal financial services industry. In the past its membership has been predominantly independent financial advisers and representatives of companies such as product providers, banks and building societies. This has changed subtly over a period of time and we now find that a very high percentage of our 22,000 members either are mortgage brokers or are connected with a mortgage broking business. Accordingly the LIA is adapting its own approach to make sure that its offering is appropriate to the market it represents, with the launch of mortgage ASSESS being only the first step. The LIA has a long history of representing the interests of its membership with legislative and regulatory authorities and is placing itself to ensure that it can continue to do this in the future.
"The FSA requires individuals giving mortgage advice to:
This requirement impacts on individuals, their supervisers and the controllers of their firms alike. We therefore support any arrangements which will assist this process and welcome the work which CII, LIA and SOFA are doing through mortgage ASSESS to promote consistent training and competence standards to the marketplace."
