Registrations are now open for the IFSP Foundation Certificate in Trusts Law and Management course 2018

28th February 2018 • News

The IFSP Foundation Certificate in Trusts Law and Management course for 2018 is set to begin on Thursday, 19 April 2018. Lectures will be held on average twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays with a few exceptions, with the final lecture held during the first week of June. The exam follows a month later, on Saturday 7 July. The timetable and registration form are both available on the IFSP website.



IFSP’s Foundation Certificate course is designed to provide a clear and solid base for professionals seeking to offer trustee services. As such, it covers the general principals of the institution of the trust, tracing its history, usage and principles as the institution developed in English law, before moving on to the specifics of how this institution is treated in Malta on a very practical level.



Lectures are delivered by experts in the field, all experienced in both the theory and the practice of trust. Lecturers include Dr Max Ganado, one of Malta’s leading authorities on trusts, alongside Prof Meryl Thomas who comes to Malta from lecturing in universities in Birmingham, Paris, Nantes, Jersey and the Caymans, and Dr Anthony Cremona, also a leading figure in Maltese trusts and lecturer in trusts for the law course at the University of Malta.



In all, the course includes 23 lectures and two tutorials, designed to allow course participants to apply the theory discussed during the lectures to practical situations.

The IFSP Foundation Certificate in Trusts Law and Management is recognised by STEP (the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners) as equivalent to its own Foundation Certificate. As a result, holders of the IFSP Foundation Certificate are exempt from the STEP Foundation course should they choose to pursue further, more advanced trust education with STEP, the leading professional organisation in the field.



Register for the course today, and please pass on to anyone else you believe may be interested.
