About Me

My name is John Trayner (yes!) and I am a freelance trainer based in London.

Exams are a necessary part of most individuals working in Financial Services. Having slogged through a whole range I ended up as a Fellow of both the Chartered Insurance Institute and the Personal Finance Society with quite a lot of retakes on the way.

I have acted as a senior and associate examiner for a number of subjects although I am no longer involved in this work so I have no insights into any future exams.

The exams that I train are:

  • R01, R02, R03, R04, R05, R06,
  • J02, J05, J10
  • AF1, AF4, AF5, AF7,

I had over 45 years experience in the business with the last 15 working in the training department of a major bank.

  1. Good afternoon John,

    I just wanted to say a huge thank you.
    I failed R03 on my first attempt earlier this year, I then watched your R03 webinar in July and then re-watched it the week before my exam and I passed today, thank you so much, it gave me a much better understanding of the book.
    For all my future exams I will keep an eye out for your webinars.

    Kind regards
