Relevant staff in Conveyancing Quality Scheme firms must do training on the following subjects:
• Conveyancing Practice 2018
• Risk and Compliance 2018
You may also have to do the “Financial Crime” course if you have not done that before.
Socrates provides all those courses. The training is online. Each course takes over an hour, but comes in manageable modules. The courses finish with a quiz to verify your understanding.
This is the first time you have a choice about CQS mandatory training. That is because we sued the Law Society in the Competition Appeal Tribunal. Previously the Law Society had awarded itself a monopoly. But the Tribunal found that it was abusing its dominant position, and granted an injunction to open the market. So be reassured that the Law Society cannot penalise you in any way for buying our product rather than theirs.
We specialise in making lively, witty and effective training for law firms.
In making these courses we have worked with real estate expert Alan Riley of Property PSL . Alan was formerly with the University of Law (as were some members of the Socrates team) where he taught property law. He now runs the “Property PSL” business, supporting firms with their know-how needs.
Courses cost £35 plus VAT per person. So it will cost you £70 plus VAT to do the combined Conveyancing Practice and Risk & Compliance courses.
