Appropriate Ongoing Training - Trustees
IAPF now offer trustees a great way to help satisfy the Pensions Authority legal requirements with regards to their ongoing training requirements.
We are happy that IAPF events, which are designed to help, inform and educate trustees, can form part of that appropriate training.
In order to help trustees to log their training we will award Appropriate Ongoing Training hours to our events, in a similar way to CPD accreditation. We think individual trustee boards should themselves determine the level of any ongoing training they require and any particular requirements they might have, taking into account their scheme. We have advised the Pensions Authority that we will be taking this initiative and they do not have any issues with it.
The format of our events means that for IAPF Conferences, we will award 4 Appropriate Ongoing Training hours and for our seminars 1 Appropriate Ongoing Training hour. Simply record your hours and submit to the Pensions Authority if required.
We also have a downloadable template that trustees might find useful for recording all their training.
CPD – Professional
As part of our overall services, all IAPF seminars and conferences provide CPD hours from the appropriate external awarding bodies. Please see our Past Events list of events which detail the amount of hours awarded and the related codes.
A full list of the 2019 codes can be found here.
