The Chartered Insurance Institute’s (CII) Society of Mortgage Professionals (SMP) has launched a new accreditation mark to assure the quality of CPD activities for mortgage advisers. The CII and PFS have recognised high-quality learning programmes provided by third-party organisations across general insurance and financial services for many years. This new SMP mark recognises CPD hours with a specific focus on mortgage advice, providing formal recognition that a training programme meets the CII’s CPD accreditation standards, as well as demonstrating:
- Transparency – participants can easily identify the potential value
- Quality – the training must be delivered to the highest possible standards
- Professional development – the programme must deliver tangible benefits to our members in relation to their professional development
Mortgage Brain, the mortgage software company who deliver the Mortgage Vision events through their AE3 Media brand, is the first to be awarded the mark for its mortgage adviser roadshow events, which include talks from thought-provoking industry experts and networking opportunities with leading UK mortgage lenders and business partners.
