FMO and Trigold team up on compliance training

First Mortgage Options has teamed up with Trigold to demonstrate compliance software at FMO&#39s CeMAP training courses.

Trigold staff will attend each course and demonstrate how the compliance aspects of the software relate to the CeMAP syllabus.

David Espin, training and compliance officer at FMO, says: “We ran over 20 CeMAP training courses last year and from our experience we have seen that it is difficult for intermediaries to maintain their concentration over a two-day intensive course.

“Trigold&#39s computer-based compliance system helps because it reinforces some of the most important aspects of the syllabus.”

FMO&#39s range of courses includes CeMAP 1, CeMAP 2, 3 and the Bridge course. All courses are intensive and run over two days. The training courses start on January 28 in Reading and continue through to April, each week in a different location across the UK. Discounts are available for existing FMO intermediaries.

Alan Hill, managing director of FMO, says: “The response to FMO&#39s 2003 CeMAP training courses has been very positive. In certain parts of the country we are already fully booked.”

Bill Safran, joint managing director at Trigold, says: “We welcome the opportunity to actively participate in the extremely important CeMAP qualification process, and we are delighted to bring our advanced compliance technology to form part of this learning process.

“If our involvement can help intermediaries to remember a particular point that goes toward obtaining their qualification, then we will have succeeded in our objective.”
