Course overview

As a company director, you’re in the firing line.

Your personal exposure is growing all the time. The maze of legislation is getting denser with the implementation of the Companies Act 2006 and incurring penalties is a real possibility. There are now over 200 offences under company law, which can lead to company directors being fined – in serious cases a custodial sentence can result. It’s the shareholders’ liability, which is limited, not the directors’.

Finding the time to stay properly up-to-speed must sometimes seem impossible. However, there is a sensible way to get-to-grips with what you need to know without making life intolerable. Falconbury have designed this course to give you expert, practical guidance on the duties, rights and obligations of this important role – all in just six modules.

What this distance learning course offers you:

1 FLEXIBILITY – learning at a pace and place of your own choosing
2 WELL-DESIGNED programme focused on practical relevance
3 MANAGEABLE weekly instalments and self-aid progress questions
4 NO NEED for time away from the office
5 REDUCED expenditure – no hotel or travel fees
6 ENJOY the flexibility of studying at work, home or on the move
7 ACCESS to professional advisors and authors of the course

This course will benefit you if:

  • You are a company director in any sort of organisation, small, medium or large
  • Or are part of the senior legal, accounting and administration support staff
  • Need to know what the law means and what you need to do
  • Want to minimise your risk of non-compliance with the law
