  • “The hard work needed to get through exams is paying off. Many more advisers have been inspired to learn and work hard. My old boss told me once – we don’t sell widgets – we sell knowledge, trust and confidence. Knowledge is a key component - the trust equation is a whole different subject, but many more advisers have been on a learning journey that is sure to continue - and the stats prove it. Well done to everyone at Brand for supporting them on that journey."

  • "I was having a particular problem with one of the R0 exams needed for my Level 4 Qualification. Having failed the exam a few times and tried one or two learning sources without success I tried the Webinars offered by Brand Financial Training. They were focused and relevant and after also downloading a number of exam papers I passed at the next attempt with far more confidence! I will continue to use the learning resources and would recommend them without hesitation."

  • "I have just passed my exam first time, once again, relying mainly on your study notes. The calculation workbook was very useful, helping me to understand and work through the calculations, as were the mock exams giving me practice for the exam itself. Thank you!"
