  • "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 always used Brand Financial Training for the papers and practice for the exams, and I would also say that probably due to Brand Financial I have passed every exam first time and also managed to achieve the Fellowship in good time (about 30 months from starting the diploma to finishing).  I have recommended you to all who wish to sit the exams in the future."

  • "I've used your resources for 3 exams so far and have always passed first time.  I find these questions help to highlight those areas in which I am weak and which may need further study.  I also find that questions in the exam are phrased in a way that I would not normally use, and that reading mock questions helps me to be aware of and alert to these.  Your mock papers were invaluable in helping me to prepare for my exams."

  • “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."

  • “After a long lay off due to illness I decided to complete my Diploma. Brand Financial Training supported my studies. Their study material is excellent, so easy to read and presented in a logical format. The analysis for R06 was received promptly along with study tips and was invaluable. Test papers for R01 again were just the job. I really appreciated the personal attention received from Catriona, with suggestions for a variety of learning resources. All reasonably priced. Many thanks. I will be doing Level 6 with Brand Financial Training.”
