Connect completes first specialist mortgage virtual academy

Connect for Intermediaries has completed its first virtual training academy for new brokers.

The training included in-depth knowledge in areas of bridging, commercial and buy-to-let mortgages.

As a result of the nationwide lockdown, Connect was unable to run its monthly training at its offices and instead went online.

The course aims to bring new advisers into the specialist mortgage industry.

Liz Syms, CEO at Connect for Intermediaries, said: "One of the challenges was teaching our academy members remotely how to use software such as OMS and Knowledge Bank, which all our network members get access to as part of their membership.

“However, we only had minor technical hitches and got some great feedback from our attendees and presenters alike.

“It has made into reality, the possibility of reaching wider audiences for further academy weeks without the attendees having to travel.”

Tushar Kukadia an attendee on the course said: "The course was excellent and great that the organiser can record the whole training for revision."
