Hi, just wanting a little advice about the certificate and whether or not I would need one.
So, I am employed with a firm who's holds an IFA practising certificate. For one, can I even apply and them be able to sign off my work. It's an awkward situation and I doubt they would even apply to be an approved employer.
Do I need one as an employee? At what point am I required to hold one, if they ultimately make the final decisions and hold a practising certificate with another body?
Finally, how long would it take. I've looked at the forms and they make no sense.... Part 1...1 year pre membership experiance ... Is this what I have already done?
Part 2....lost... Part 3, is this just for auditors?
Apologies for the long winded post :(
