SM&CR Programme supports regulated members

The BVRLA's remote SM&CR Development Programme, which continues to provide valuable support to leasing broker members, has places available on the next course on Tuesday 26 January 2021.

As solo-regulated firms prepare for the Financial Conduct Authority’s Senior Managers & Certification Regime deadline of 31 March 2021, the BVRLA is reminding members of the support available.

The association’s comprehensive five step SM&CR Development Programme adopts a blended learning approach including online independent learning, instructor-led training and insight from compliance experts:

Step 1: Let us support you to find out your business type - gather vital information when preparing for SM&CR.

Step 2: Complete specialised e-Learning modules - learn comprehensive background information on the regime.

Step 3: Attend a BVRLA remote training session - run by our Compliance Expert - engage with the change.

Step 4: Receive support and guidance with an example Statement of Responsibility - put theory into practice.

Step 5: Attend a BVRLA Q&A session, run by our Compliance team focusing on how SM&CR has changed the Inspection Programme - gain insight and have your questions answered.

Previous course attendee, Tracey Whalley of XLCR Vehicle Management said: “This programme really broke down some of the required information in an easy-to-follow format for exactly what is expected of firms in this regime.”
