Liberty Life supports brokers with new training framework

02 February 2007 Liberty Life

Liberty Life has announced the launch of a new skills Development Path for all its financial advisers against the backdrop of the newly implemented FAIS legislation that requires all financial advisors to acquire National Qualification Framework (NQF) Credits.

Liberty Life Group Executive - Sales, Distribution & Strategic Partners
(SDS) Bobby Malabie says: "We are committed to utilising the most competent brokers and financial advisors in the marketplace and as such, we need to encourage their development by providing solid training structures."

Currently quite a number of accredited skills providers offer a wide variety of courses.

"This has made it hard for brokers to know which one to choose. To assist them with this process, Liberty Life has aligned its Development Path to INSETA accredited courses, commencing with The National Certificate in Wealth Management (NQF Level 5). Upon completion of this certificate, learners will acquire a minimum of 120 credits at an NQF Level 5," reports Malabie 

Liberty Life has nominated the University of Stellenbosch Business School Executive Development to be the assessor and moderator on the courses offered. Credits and qualifications earned will be awarded by the University.

Liberty Life will not only provide training and guidance but also communicate with brokers to ensure that they are on track with their studies. "We will also prepare them for assessments and ensure that the training that they receive is relevant to their particular fields of operation and areas of interest," explains Malabie.

Overall, Malabie is excited about the implementation of the new skills tool within the Liberty Life framework. "All our financial advisers now have the opportunity to ensure that they not only attain the necessary qualifications to maintain their competency status, but can also through a process of continuous development secure their future within the industry and provide ongoing professional service to their customers."
