IAPF Trustee Training Courses
Trustees have a duty to ensure that they are properly informed, particularly on legal issues and policy developments that may affect how they carry out their responsibilities.
From the 1st of February 2010 it is now a legislative requirement that pensions scheme trustees are formally trained (within six months of appointment for new trustees; within two years for existing trustees and the training must be repeated every 2 years.). The Irish Association of Pension Funds provides Pensions Board approved Trustee Training to all Pensions Scheme Trustees and Pension Professionals.
The IAPF provide both half day and full day training for Trustees.
The full day Trustee Training courses are designed for new Trustees but are also suitable for existing Trustees. Alternatively a half day course has being designed for Trustees who have attended Trustee Training in the past but wish to refresh their knowledge and for those Trustees who want a brief overview of Trustee Issues. The Training is separated into Defined Benefits, Defined Contribution specific courses and we also offer a course designed to educate Trustees on Investment Issues.
