About the workshop
In association with the Personal Finance Society East Midlands Committee and the Insurance Institutes of Leicester and Nottingham, BTS have organised a series of online training days (using Zoom) for candidates who are studying for and taking the CII R0 exams.
The two-day workshop will be held on a Friday and Monday.
Each day will commence at 09:30 sharp and finish by 16:30, with breaks timetabled for lunch etc throughout the day.
There is a maximum of 12 attendees.
The cost of two days training is subsidised by the PFS and full details, including costs for both PFS members and non-members, can be found on the booking link.
The workshops are designed to consolidate your learning and make sure you have a sound knowledge of the key subject areas, plus some question technique tips prior to your exam. Access to digital copies of the slides, plus some online consolidation tests will be provided after the event.
Recommended prior learning
To get the most out of the workshop, we recommend you study your choice of Study Guide before attending. The BTS Study Guide can be ordered from the shop.
Get the R0 Study Buddy App
To support your exam preparation, the BTS R0 Study Buddy App contains volumes of exam-standard questions (£39.99 per volume).
The experts at BTS sit the R0 exams every year to make sure our exam questions are as close to the real thing as we can get them. This means you can be confident that the questions in the R0 Study Buddy are as close to exam-standard as they can be.
Each volume of R0 exam questions contains enough questions for four unique exam papers.

"I couldn’t recommend BTS enough! This was my first ever workshop with Luiza and I honestly found it so engaging and informative. The two days flew by and we managed to cover so much. It really has helped to cement things for me and I’m feeling so much more confident about my exam next week! Luiza is really friendly and approachable - she answered all 101 of my questions 🤣 Definitely going to use BTS for future exams."

"Thank you so much BTS! I honestly couldn’t have done it without your study guides and study days. They made such a difference."

"I am so pleased to have passed my R04 exam today first time round. 5 down 1 more to go now! The credit really goes to Luiza Todd FPFS CFP from Bespoke Training Solutions Ltd. I connected with Luiza on an off chance last year when I had deferred success in my tax exam and she recommended the R0 study app a week prior to my exam coupled with some useful hints and tips. My initial thoughts were when I came off the call with Luiza was that she came across so passionate and genuine! Her service was second to none and that’s what I got sold by ☺️ “The world is so small” is a true saying because the company I work for has partnered up with BTS to support us with our R0 journey.
Can I just say how excellent those workshops are. It really does help cement all your knowledge and honestly I learnt so much more by understanding the “ why” behind each topic. The BTS resources are extremely useful and their study guides never put you to sleep lol."

"I found the BTS R01 Workshop very helpful, especially as it made R01 clearer by laying it out in a visual way which helped me to remember key information. The workshop was beneficial to me before taking my exam as the instructor gave important exam tips on how to tackle the hard questions and not be overwhelmed by the exam style. Many thanks again!"

"Possibly the best element of the BTS offering, the revision sessions offered by BTS are second to none in exam preparation. Delivered by industry experts, the sessions are 100% focused on exam technique, drilling down on the course content that is most likely to come up, carries to most marks or giving you the heads-up when it comes to pitfalls to avoid!
The training sessions are split into manageable chunks, with flip chart after flip chart of common-sense walk-throughs and diagrams to make the content crystal clear. The approach taken by the trainers creates an environment where no question is a dumb question, so the sessions are the ideal vehicle to pin down your understanding of content that you just can’t get your head around. The revision sessions often include quick tests and plenty of handouts to get you ready to sit your exam with confidence, refining your knowledge and organising the content in your head to help prepare you to sit the exam ready for anything."

"Luiza really helped bring some clarity to the mass of info you have to learn for R04. She made sure we knew what was going to be important to learn for the exam, as opposed to just nice to know. She also explained everything simply so that we could understand the ‘why’ as well as the ‘what’, which is essential when deciphering CII exam questions."
