Paradigm have enhanced our award-winning CPD Academy by developing a Test Zone in response to the requirements for advisers to be certificated as ‘fit and proper’ to perform their role.

The Test Zone provides video learning followed by multiple choice questions and case studies which assist with putting the learning into practice. These tests allow advisers to regularly test their knowledge and understanding of key areas of risk.

When taking the tests, if you pass you will be sent an email containing your result and CPD certificate worth either 30 or 45 minutes of CPD (depending on the module), a log of which will then be added to your account. If you fail the test you will be re-directed to sit another set of questions.

Firms can now complete their annual training on the following topics via the CPD Test Zone:

  • Anti-Bribery and Whistleblowing
  • Anti-Money Laundering - Module 1
  • Anti-Money Laundering Module 2 - Duties of the MLRO
  • Certification
  • Code of Conduct (COCON)
  • Complaints Handling
  • Conflicts of Interest
  • Consumer Duty
  • Cybersecurity
  • GDPR: Understanding your obligations - Module 1
  • GDPR: Understanding your obligations - Module 2
  • General Insurance - Product Knowledge Test
  • Mortgage Fraud
  • Protection - Product Knowledge Test
  • Senior Manager & Certification Regime (SM&CR)
  • Threshold Conditions
  • Vulnerable Clients

* We’ve developed two tests here – one for administrators and advisers etc., and one for the Money Laundering Reporting Officer.

A Supervisor or Senior Manager responsible for certificated employees can oversee these tests and the adviser’s results, helping them to decide on further training if required.
