A Tailored Training Service, When & Where You Need It
We’re always working to improve and fine-tune the service we offer to our clients, and we make it possible for them to do the same. Our training provision covers areas such as sales, F&I and FCA Regulations, and can be delivered online, via virtual video or in-house. It’s a truly tailored service – the training you need, delivered when, where and how you need it.
All of our FCA Regulatory and SAF Competence Training comes with the benefit of a Lock-down Facility when used alongside our FCA Regulatory Software (TCF system) meaning that none of your employees will be able to sell vehicles without being fully competent.
We are industry-leading experts in this area and are in regular contact with the FCA responding immediately to regulatory changes.
Solo Sales Training
Automotive Systems provides flexible and bespoke automotive sales management training packages; our solo sales training will ensure your staff are given the one-on-one time they deserve. This type of training means the individual needs of staff are identified and met.
This can be delivered through our online training portal (LMS) which is directly linked to the TCF system to ensure competency and compliance before allowing access the TCF system. The system also controls the renewal of training and competency on an anniversary style basis which sets reminders to all regulated staff of their need to always remain competent.
Group Sales Training
We offer group sales development workshops to make certain your team is working and communicating as consistently and professionally as they can, and to ensure all your team members are ultimately on the same page.
FCA TCF Guidance: guidance regarding training and learning management can be found on the FCA website, whilst Automotive Systems are happy to provide any information or advice regarding their TCF software.
SAF Compentence Training
Automotive Systems can also offer a platform for SAF Competence Training so that your teams only need to rely on one portal for their training needs. Any in house or virtual training an individual completes can be uploaded with a time taken into our training platform, which along with our online courses can be viewed in our management reporting suite.
Here at Automotive Systems, everything we do is bespoke and designed to work with clients existing systems, processes and structures. We appreciate the fact that each client will need their own unique sales solutions, up to and including tailoring training to meet the requirements of specific individuals within a company. In this way the training delivered will be custom built to maximise the impact of performance management.
Our industry experts can deliver the tailored training workshops you need either in-house or virtually. Whether the sales training in question is delivered in a one-to-one format or as a group based activity, we can guarantee outstanding results and a notable uplift in your team’s performance.
FCA Regulatory Training
Any company that sells or offers insurance products must be authorised by the Financial Conducts Authority (FCA); therefore every business is responsible for ensuring it's individuals are and remain proficient in the work that they do, the products that you offer and the ever-changing compliancy regulations that they need to adhere to.
Our FCA regulatory courses cover all of the areas affected by the FCA legislation as it applies to solely the automotive retail sector. We also provide insurance product specific courses based entirely on the products you offer.
Training & Competency
Competency is defined as:
“having the skills, knowledge, and expertise needed to discharge the responsibilities of an employee’s role”.
This is the core of all training & learning management services – to ensure that your staff have the ability to perform their jobs as expected. The FCA rules all firms where employees give advice, undertake sales, or provide a service must be competent, and have their competency measured; our FCA compliance means Treating Customers Fairly upholds these values throughout our software to provide an engaging and effective automotive sales training & learning system.
The TCF Learning Management System (LMS) has the ability, to monitor the on-going FCA Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements. A firm must ensure that each relevant employee completes a minimum of 15 hours of professional training or development in each 12-month period.
How Does FCA Software Measure Training & Learning?
The FCA suggests various metrics which may be considered when regulating training, which can be done in a number of ways. Employee competence must be assessed in order to establish how much or little training they require; this can be done through sitting a mock exam, product and market training, or practical training, which tests them in their relevant roles and responsibilities.
Maintaining adequate levels of competence; this is particularly important to remember in conjunction to external changes, such as variation in the marketplace, products, regulation or legislation. There should be clear definitions of what is, and what falls under, an adequate level of responsibility – this is personal to your firm. Training should be carried out to ensure employees remain at adequate levels of competence.
Supervision: Supervision, carried out by a supervisor who themselves are competent, is another way of ensuring your staff receive the help they need. Levels of supervision depend on the employee’s competency, with more supervision practised before they reach an adequate level of competency.
Finally, the FCA outlines some certifications which may be applicable before your staff begin regulated activities. This depends on the service you provide, and can be found through the employee's role, rather than title. Typically, there is a margin of 48 months to gain these qualifications after starting the regulated activity.
