Our courses have limited spaces, simply because we have a limited number of positions available. You can start your new career immediately after completing your course, or delay it for a later date; whatever suits your situation. Financial support is sometimes offered by most of our partner employers. This could include free get started accommodation, flight tickets, and a basic retainer while you build your career.
This course reopens in August 2023.
Financial Advisers to progress from trainee to consultant level will need to obtain formal qualifications. There are several ways to do that. We recommend the Chartered Insurance Institute’s Award in Financial Planning for Non-UK based financial advisers. We have structured our syllabus so that you will learn all you need to pass the exam and gain the award.
After completing our course, a real high earning career awaits you, in a variety of worldwide locations.
Our FREE IFA Essentials course is fully online and is flexible.
You will be assigned a personal mentor with over 20 years experience as an IFA. They will help guide you through your training and advise you on the available opportunities for new trainee financial advisers. Our spaces are genuinely limited, don’t be disappointed sign up today.
Our course does not have a pass or fail, however you will need to complete the course. Your mentor will guide you through the course, and help you learn at your own speed. Once the course is complete your mentor will suggest the best company for you to join based on how much onward training and support you will require.
Our course is designed to get new IFA trainees up and running and earning as quickly as possible, it does not count as a formally recognized qualification. But we do follow the syllabus of the Chartered Insurance Institutes Award in Financial Planning for Non-UK based advisers. We include a guide within the course to help you pass the CII exam, which can be taken at many locations around the world. After completing our course, you should be able to pass this exam without any problems.
The simple answer is yes. Your mentor will provide you with a list of the IFA firms and locations that are available to you and discuss the various options. It is then up to you to choose where you want to go.
Yes, you can work from any location as long as you have a computer and a good internet connection.
Yes, you decide how many hours a day you wish to work. You will be your own boss and can tailor a home based telesales business so that it becomes your sole income, or as a top up to your current income.
A number of the IFA firms we work closely with recruit telesales staff to work directly in their offices in places like Dubai, Hong Kong, Moscow, and many others. Your mentor will guide you on the best choices.
It depends on the way you work. For example, working from home you can charge an hourly fee and a fee for each appointment you make. An example would be an hourly fee of $30 and $100 for each appointment that is confirmed.
Other telesales people charge a commission of the sales the IFA makes, this is normally around 20%. But this is more common for telesales staff who work abroad in the IFA offices, and these can lead to six-figure incomes.

You can start as soon as you complete your course. Your personal mentor will discuss your options and guide you through this.
As a trainee IFA working offshore we would expect you to earn in excess of $65k, most earn more. It will just depend on how hard you work. You will receive some financial help from the IFA firm you join, such as the cost of flight back, and free accommodation for a 3 or 6-month period.
That’s not a problem, you can pause your course for up to 5 years.
