Each step is designed to get students through the exam process with a pass.

Anyone studying for their R01, R02, R03, R04, R05 and R06 exams can benefit from our training solutions. Trainee advisers, paraplanners, administrators and managers... anyone wanting to achieve their Level 4 Diploma, can achieve a first-time pass with Bespoke Training Solutions.

R06 WorkshopOur services are geared to one thing; an exam pass, and they are a proven winning formula.

For instance, the R01 financial services regulation and ethics exam is challenging. It has a countrywide pass-rate of about two-thirds of those who sit the exam, 64%.

Bespoke Training Solutions pass-rates are around 100% for R01, R05 and R06 and in the 80-90% range for R02, R03 and R04 which are the hardest modules of the CII Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning.

These pass rates are for students who have used the BTS study guides and have benefited from some face to face training.

Bespoke Training Solutions Study Guides are an effective alternative to the CII manuals.

  • They are visual, making them easy for students to use and understand
  • The text is broken up with graphics, activities and exercises.
  • The aim of the BTS study guides is to ‘start at the bottom’ and gradually increase your knowledge and understanding, so you learn the required areas of the R0 exams step by step.
  • So, we start with the foundations and gradually work up from there.
  • We provide you with methods on how to deal with the wording of questions posed by the CII and go into greater detail on the chapters with larger exam weightings.
  • At the end of each chapter, we provide exam-style practice questions and answers.
  • There is also a full specimen R0 mock exam at the end of each guide. These replicate the standard of the actual R0 exams as closely as possible, so not easier nor massively more difficult.
  • All BTS answer sheets explain why the correct answer is the right one, so that you also learn from any mistakes that you make.

Our face to face training is tailored to your needs.

  • We work with your company to agree a variety of options, from one-day revision sessions to full-blown two-day, or more, workshops.
  • One-day revision events allow the focus to be on learner needs, based on their existing knowledge levels, and highlight key exam areas that are often examined.
  • Full workshops cover more of the exam syllabus, allow more time to expand on areas learners may be having difficulty with and reduce the need for personal study in advance of the workshop.

BTS App on iPhoneOur App means you can also learn and revise wherever you are, and whenever you have time.

  • The BTS R0 Study Buddy app is for smart phones and tablets and is a digital way of practising for the R0 exams.
  • It is perfect for anyone trying to pass R01 through to R05 and replicates the CII exam standard, as much as possible, in an electronic format.
  • It mirrors the pressure you experience in a real exam, marks the paper for you and provides feedback on what you got wrong, and why.
  • It compliments all the services Bespoke Training Solutions offer.

“I came away from the course feeling like I could handle the exam and was able to tackle the rest of my revision in a much more structured manner. Genuinely don’t think I could have passed first time without it!”
