L&G get tooled up

This section covers training and competency requirements, and complements the fitness and properness section launched in November last year. The Toolkit has been devloped to help intermediaires to understand and meet the requirements of the Mortgage Code, as firms have to set up training and competency structures within their firms. The latest section includes checklists, and flowcharts to help firms work through the different requirements for different members of staff.

Stephen Smith, director, housing marketing at L&G, said: "For many firms the introduction of the MCCB requirements to work in a compliant environment and to run fitness and competency schemes will be a new experience for them. We developed the MCCB Toolkit to guide them through the requirements of the Code in a straightforward, easy to follow guide, supported with examples of the materials they will need."
