PSRs online training

We have developed an e-learning package to provide an overview of the PSRs, covering both the authorisation and registration requirements and the conduct of business requirements.

It may interest staff in firms that are authorised or registered as payment institutions, and to staff at banks and building societies who are affected by the conduct of business provisions.

The package is free to use and no record will be kept of your score.
