The MiFID II Training Programme by House of Training has been specifically designed to fullfill the Luxembourg MiFID II Knowledge and Competence criteria as set out in CSSF Circulars 17/665 and 17/670, and has received the CSSF accreditation.

In light of the heterogeneous requirements that MiFID II in-scope entities may have, the MiFID II programme described hereafter is based on a blended learning approach with 10 independent modules, composed of 8 instructor-led courses and 2 complementary e-learning courses.

The programme can be booked as a one-stop solution (64 hours without the optional e-learning courses, or 76 hours with the optional e-learning courses) for an in-scope entity’s external MiFID II training programme or adapted to the specific needs of an in-scope entity. In the latter case, entities with specific needs freely choose which of the modules they want their employees to participate in. Firms booking the one-stop solution or selected modules can propose to their employees to pass a test at the end of the programme and, upon successful passing of the test, they will be awarded with a MiFID II certification for professionals providing investment information. A specific course and test for professionals providing investment advice can further be booked and will validate the necessary theoretical skills for any professional active in investment advisory services.

Target Audience

The persons concerned by the MiFID II Certification Training Programme are all persons placed under the authority of a professional (or acting on his behalf) subject to prudential supervision by the CSSF, i.e. individuals providing investment advice (“Advisory profile”) or information (“Information profile”) on financial instruments, investment services or ancillary services to clients.

Certificate of participation and knowledge assessments

All following modules include the delivery of a certificate of participation (to be downloaded from the client portal).
Candidates willing to assess their knowledge after having completed a module have the possibility to register, per module, to an optional test that takes place every Tuesday and every last Thursday of each month, except on school holidays. This test is purely designed to validate the candidates' knowledge and will not lead in any case to a certification.
