Pensions Board launches interactive e-learning system
Trustees to get clearer picture from the Web
TechLife | 19 Jan 2010 :
The Pensions Board has announced the launch of its e-learning system for pension scheme trustees.
From 1 February 2010, all pension scheme trustees must undertake training at least every two years. The new e-learning system provides this training on-line and free of charge in an easy to use self-paced manner.
The interactive e-learning course comprises 9 lessons covering how pensions work: being a trustee; scheme rules, contributions and benefits; running a scheme; scheme financing for defined benefit schemes; investing a scheme's assets; administration and accounting; member communication; and managing problems.
The trustee e-learning system can be accessed at http://trusteetraining.pensionsboard.ie/ or from the Board's website on www.pensionsboard.ie.
