“If you’re currently taking the IFS diploma I would say Competent Adviser is an absolute must have system. There’s a wealth of information within the system, as well as lots of useful links to other web sites, with relevant information for your assignment. In addition to the content, there’s also a facility to test your understanding of the subject. You’ve got everything you need all in one place, without the need to aimlessly search the internet, which saves you hours.”
