Half-day training courses


We provide a Pensions-Authority-approved half-day trustee training course for prospective and experienced trustees. This course is suitable for defined benefit (DB) and defined contribution (DC) trustees and is presented by a senior panel of Mercer experts who have years of experience dealing with trustee issues.


The courses are conducted over four hours and are designed to be interactive, with updates and discussions on recent pensions issues and question/answer sessions throughout. All participants will be awarded four hours of formal CPD and will also receive a Trustee Training certificate.

Bespoke training courses


In addition to this course, we can also provide bespoke training courses. Our consultants can work with you to identify the training needs of the trustee body as a whole, a subgroup or individual trustees.


We can then develop and deliver a course or training programme designed to meet these specific needs.


Courses can be run at any location convenient for the trustees, including your offices or the Mercer offices. Whether you are a trustee, a pension administrator or involved in the day-to-day management of pensions, these courses will be of benefit to you.
