Training for Sole Traders and Small Companies

Once you have decided that you would like to train with us to become an Estate Planning Consultant then you will need to complete the following 5 steps:

Book your Training

The first step is to book your place on our Foundation training course. For those of you who are sole traders, or small company (companies with less than 4 people wanting to train with us) you will be required to attend our 2 day Foundation training course which is held locally to our offices in Kenilworth, and complete our online learning module.

There will be a set fee for the training day and a small charge per person for our Online Learning modules.

Choose your Contract

Work with us in the way that best suits you and your business

There are 4 different ways you can choose to work with Countrywide either as a Sole Trader or a Small Company and this will be reflected in your agreement with us.

Following the Countrywide Foundation Training Course, every Advisor working in association with Countrywide, must sign one of our Company Contracts agreeing to our Terms and Conditions prior to providing advice on our Products & Services.

There are 4 contracts available to you which are Contracts A, B, C and D.
