Wiseradviser training courses gain full Money Advice Service accreditation

The Money Advice Trust’s core The Money Advice Trust’s core Wiseradviser training courses have gained accreditation from the Money Advice Service Quality Framework for debt advice training.  The accreditation, announced today, means that debt advisers taking a core cluster of Wiseradviser courses will be now able to demonstrate they meet the minimum standards required by the Money Advice Service, including as part of funding applications to the government-backed body.

The Money Advice Trust has introduced a core cluster* of Wiseradviser courses to help advisers meet these minimum requirements, while the charity continues to recommend that advisers across the UK complete all the courses within the Wiseradviser learning programme as part of their professional development. 

Julie Smith, Head of Adviser Support at the Money Advice Trust, said:“We are delighted to have achieved full accreditation from the Money Advice Service for our core Wiseradviser courses.   This will give advisers across the UK further confidence that Wiseradviser training can help them deliver the highest standard of debt advice, to help turn their clients’ financial situations around.

“The accreditation will also help advice agencies demonstrate to the Money Advice Service that their advisers meet the minimum standards required.  We will continue to strongly recommend, however, that advisers complete the whole Wiseradviser training programme to ensure they gain all the skills necessary for their crucial roles on the front line of debt advice.”
