Earlier this year, ASIC charged the Financial Adviser Standards and Ethics Authority (FASEA) with implementing minimum training requirements for financial advisers.
These new training requirements are now in effect, with those wishing to enter the financial industry as advisers needing to satisfy minimum standards, while those already in the industry possibly needing to upgrade their qualifications.
If you are already working in the financial planning industry then there are four courses that may apply to you, depending on your circumstances.
GRADUATE DIPLOMA OF FINANCIAL PLANNING
A hands-on course that prepares you for the job you want, this Graduate Diploma is suitable for practising financial planners who hold a Diploma or Advanced Diploma in financial planning and career changes who hold a degree qualification, and/or extensive financial services experience.
This program allows existing financial planners or advisers with a degree or higher qualification in a finance field (but a non-approved FASEA course) to meet the new educational standards by completing the three FASEA bridging subjects whilst gaining a qualification.
