Exam Drilling Course for Wealth Management Practitioners

Changes in the wealth management industry provide guidelines for relationship managers and private bankers, with less than 10 years of relevant experience, to be certified as private wealth management professionals. They are required to complete a training program and pass the examination requirements. The content-heavy examinations are challenging for busy private wealth management professionals.

Kaplan provides comprehensive courses to properly prepare them in learning the considerable syllabus and passing these rigorous exams. Our courses focus on the key concepts and are taught by experienced and knowledgeable lecturers. The lecturers leverage Kaplan’s well-researched study materials and practice questions to ensure that the learners clearly understand the questions and concepts tested in the exams.

Client organizations and participants alike have responded to Kaplan’s exam drilling courses for private wealth management practitioners with strong positive feedback, emphasizing the effectiveness of the courses and enhancement of exam performance.

Programs with longer duration will cover more topics, go into greater depth and provide greater improvements.

  • How much time your staff can devote?

The more they put into this training, the more they will get out.
