MASTrain is Money Advice Scotland's new programme dedicated to supporting the learning and development needs of money advisers.

MASTrain's face-to-face training courses are skills-focused half and full-day courses, based on consultation with money advisers.  The courses are aimed at a range of experience levels, from brand-new advisers, to those looking to refresh their skills, and very experienced money advisers who want support dealing with complex cases. The programme will introduce new courses on a quarterly basis. 

There are four course types:

1. Support Staff/non-Advisers
These courses are for staff who work with people who may experience money worries, but do not give money advice. 

2. Beginners and refreshers
These courses are for advisers who are new to their role, and to more experienced advisers who would like to refresh their knowledge or skills in specific areas. Most of these courses are aimed at advisers from SNS Type I and II agencies.

3. Experienced Advisers
These courses are aimed at advisers who have a senior role within their organisation or who are relatively experienced.  Most of these courses are aimed at advisers from SNS Type I, II and III agencies.

4. Technical
These courses are aimed at advisers at any level of experience who deal with specific technical aspects of advice, for example court representation, or insolvencies.  The type of experience required is detailed in individual course descriptions. Most of these courses are aimed at advisers from SNS Type II and III agencies.

Please note that MASTrain and Wiseradviser are separate programmes. Wiseradviser continues to be facilitated by Money Advice Scotland. The MASTrain courses are designed to complement existing training in response to CPD needs identified by Money Advice Scotland in consultation with its members.
