Dates & Venues
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, our 2020 dates will be delivered via online virtual classrooms. For the Financial & Business Skills examination, candidates will be requested to attend their office, or other suitable venue, together with their supervisor or a senior member of staff to invigilate.

"We chose MBL for our PSC requirements as they were able to deliver an in-house fast track solution tailored around our trainee induction programme. The quality of training and standard of customer service was excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to other firms. "
