About the workshop
The AF1 remote workshop concentrates on the key knowledge exam techniques that are essential for an exam pass.
The AF1 exam tests your ability to demonstrate and apply your technical knowledge of tax and trusts.
It builds on the core R03 knowledge, and requires you to be able to analyse case study details, and critically appraise the financial options available to the clients. Your answers need to be clear, concise, precise, and related to the case study scenarios.
You’ll need to be able to evaluate the complex needs of clients and recommend solutions across the learning outcomes.
The AF1 workshop allows you to benefit from a group environment where we go through some of the key elements of tax and trusts.
You’ll see worked examples and can ask questions to consolidate your studies as we move towards the final revision period.
You will be amazed at what you learn by being part of the workshop group and ‘having a go’ at the questions.
Technical areas that may come up will be covered and revised, and group discussions around possible questions and answers will help a lot.
Bear in mind, these are pre-exam prep workshops, and you’ll need to have completed the study guide in advance. We can’t fit 150 hours of study and cover the entire syllabus in 2-days.
We’re good, but not that good!
The workshop days will run 9:30am – 4:30pm.
Delivered on Zoom.
Places are limited to 12 attendees.
The workshop days will involve a review of the key technical knowledge in the unit. You will also work through model questions and answers to practice key AF1 exam techniques. You will have the opportunity to ask and discuss questions in a group forum as well, to prepare for the AF1 exam sitting as much as possible.
To pass AF1, you’ll need to demonstrate critical evaluation skills, as you would expect for a level 6 exam. Your facilitator will spend time using slides and a whiteboard to explain key concepts. They will also discuss exam-style questions and exam techniques.
Recommended prior learning
BTS also suggest you that you order and work through our AF1 study guide before attending the above workshop.
Just like any other CII exam, some self-study first is required. It is not just a question of attending a workshop and practising possible exam questions. Self-study across different technical areas is a must, to give you the best possible chance of a pass.
Order your copy of the BTS AF1 Study Guide here.
We also recommend candidates complete in exam conditions and self-mark as many CII AF1 papers as possible.
The viability of a workshop is based on minimum delegate numbers. If you need to cancel your space, please let us know in writing as soon as possible and no later than one week prior to the start date. Cancellations after this point will not be refunded unless a replacement delegate can be found, as this would impact on the course for your fellow delegates. If BTS cancels the workshop, the cost of attending the workshop will be refunded in full.
