Darlington-based paraplanning firm Para-Sols has welcomed its latest level 4 qualified paraplanner, six months ahead of schedule.
Si Warne (pictured) joined the firm’s two-year training programme, the Grad Scheme, in August 2015, and completed his qualifications just days before his 23rd birthday.
The firm invited Warne to share his experiences and advice via a mini hashtag campaign titled #TGSAskSi, where those interested in the profession could pitch their questions to him.
‘Combining my studies with my work was relatively easy, purely down to the fact that what I do on a daily basis teaches me more about the world of pensions, investments, and tax, than any 300-page textbook ever could,’ said Warne in a blog post on the Para-Sols website.
‘The office environment is a huge help. Para-Sols has an open, friendly and relaxed culture, so I have colleagues sat in every direction ready and waiting to help.
‘With my level 4 now done and dusted, I’m already looking towards the level 6 AF exams, with a view to gaining my Advanced Diploma in good time and another step closer towards my ultimate aim of becoming Chartered in the next three or so years.’
