About this course

This Wills & Probate course for secretaries and executive assistants beats other legal secretary courses in Wills & Probate in two ways. Firstly it gives you specialist legal secretary training from Pitman Training – we’re highly respected by legal firms throughout Ireland. And secondly, we go further in giving you insight into the work of fee earners, to help improve your understanding of law firms and increase your opportunities.

What’s more, we can also provide alternatives with both Scottish Law and English Law versions of this course. So, if you’re considering a move to the UK, you can be confident that wherever you work, you’ve chosen the very best training.

Our legal secretarial courses are split into subject areas and our Wills & Probate course has four sections:

• procedures for will-making

• codicils, power of attorney and deed of revocation

• obtaining grant of probate

• documentation regarding the distribution of an estate

Your knowledge of Wills & Probate will be supported by a workbook, which you keep after the course. The course is also flexible, so you can fit in your studies around your work and home commitments.
