Aldermore has launched its 2016 training programme, consisting of three workshops to support up-and-coming talent in asset finance broker businesses across the country.
Following on from its launch in autumn 2014, Aldermore held four free training courses last year, offering an opportunity for those working in the intermediary sector to gain a fundamental overview of asset finance.
The first two day course in the 2016 programme which focused on sales skills, was held on 21-22 June in central Birmingham and was attended by 30 brokers. The remaining two courses are being held on 28-29 June (regulatory training for brokers) and 12-13 September 2016 (principles of asset finance) at the Maple House Conference Centre, 150 Corporation Street in Birmingham.
Altogether so far, around 150 brokers have benefitted from the workshops, which are delivered by an independent trainer, with in-depth industry knowledge.
Registration for the 2016 workshops is now closed but Aldermore is already looking to offer them again in 2017 due to their popularity.
Jon Maycock, commercial director for asset finance at Aldermore, said: “Brokers are an essential part of the asset finance industry and it’s key that intermediaries, especially those new to our industry, regularly undergo training that allows them to grow their talent and advise their clients in the best possible way.
“Aldermore is committed to supporting the growth of the asset finance industry and know that SMEs in the UK will benefit if we invest in the people they work with, so we are delighted to offer this complementary programme.
“I welcome all those who plan to attend, as the course is not only a great way for brokers to grow their talent, but is also an excellent networking opportunity for those in the industry.”
