MiFID II blended learning curriculum

The CSSF circular 17/665 requires that professionals "ensure and demonstrate to competent authorities that natural persons giving investment advice or providing information about financial instruments, investment services or ancillary services to clients on behalf of the professional possess the necessary knowledge and competence to fulfil their obligations."

PwC's Academy has designed in close collaboration with PwC's subject matter experts an extensive blended learning curriculum to address the knowledge and competence criteria as set out by the regulator.

The training curriculum is designed to offer an effective, flexible and cost-efficient approach for professionals to build-up and maintain their MiFID II knowledge and competence.

1 curriculum, 2 delivery formats, 5 complementary building blocks

The curriculum’s pedagogic approach is to propose an extensive learning universe along with the ability to blend digital and live formats for an optimal learning experience. Considering their business environment, professionals can easily assess which building blocks are relevant to support their MiFID related learning initiatives.

Digital learning components:

  • The "MiFID II certification" comprehensive e-learning suite is structured around 5 thematic pillars for professionals giving investment advice or giving information about investment products, investment services or ancillary services. Depending on the professional population considered, each pillar comprises a set of digital tutorials related to the knowledge and competence criteria. Each thematic pillar kicks off with a skill gap assessment enabling the definition of personalised learning journey given the learner’s results. The e-learning suite can be complemented by live classroom / webinar sessions on selected topics under the blended learning approach.
