People appointed before 2010 had various options regarding prescribed qualifications, including obtaining a certain minimum number of credits, depending on what categories they were licensed for.
My alert colleague, Paull Lawrence, sent us a reminder that those representatives appointed between 1 January 2010 and 30 June 2010 have until the end of June 2016 to obtain a full qualification in order to remain compliant.
Failure to do so will mean that you are no longer fit and proper and will have to be removed from the representative register, or debarred. You will not be able to work or apply for re-employment until such time as you complete the required qualification.
This is of course also a timely warning for those falling in the next band.
If your date of first appointment falls between 1 July 2010 and 30 June 2011, you only have a year left to obtain the required full qualification.
While six years seemed like a long time when you were first appointed, the last year normally speeds past. If you require guidance and advice, please talk to the friendly folk at Moonstone Business School of Excellence, or visit our website.
