Course Overview:

This course is designed to help managers, supervisors and compliance staff to put together effective learning sessions so that they can help their teams understand the Conduct Rules in the context of their business and integrate the Conduct Rules into routine performance management.

The Conduct Rules lie at the heart of the Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SM&CR). Despite the turmoil and uncertainties caused by Covid-19, the FCA’s Business Plan for 2020-2021 states that: “We expect all solo-regulated firms to comply with the requirements of the SM&CR as they fall due.The regime aims to see firms across financial services foster healthy cultures where conduct and fair customer outcomes are at the forefront of their business.”

These requirements include the obligation that all staff are fully trained on the Conduct Rules and understand how these Rules impact their job roles. Firms must complete this training by 9th December 2020 at the latest. This course will help firms meet this deadline.
