Enable completes first induction course for ARs

Enable Mortgage & Insurance Network, part of the Skipton group, has completed its first induction course for appointed representatives.

The first enable members completed their two-day course in Chichester, West Sussex on June 8. The network says it has courses scheduled right up until regulation day for mortgages.

The course assessment will form the basis of each individual&#39s training and continuing professional development plan within the network.

Having completed and passed the induction course Michael Jones, a mortgage specialist from Reigate in Surrey, says: “It wasn&#39t easy, but I wouldn&#39t say the course was daunting either.

Its understanding of the needs of the busy mortgage and protection adviser is first class, as istheir sourcing and compliance tool MI-FACT.”

The course was designed and delivered by threesixty services of Manchester, the support services provider founded during 2003 by David Brattesani and other former Bankhall compliance directors.
