Education provider, Kaplan Professional, believes many licensees and their financial advisers are already on the front foot with their FASEA exam preparation, despite calls from the industry to extend the deadline for FASEA’s Financial Adviser Examination.
The first FASEA set of exams was announced in May (see: 579 Sit FASEA Exam), while last month the AFA responded to concerns from its members over practice questions for the exam (see: AFA Responds to FASEA…).
“While an extension may provide extra time to prepare, it is imperative advisers do not sit back and lose momentum. We have been encouraging licensees to avoid a situation where the deadline looms and advisers have the stress of an exam and the education requirements hanging over their head,” said Kaplan Professional CEO, Brian Knight.

“With so much riding on performance in FASEA’s exam, it is our belief advisers need to dedicate a significant amount of time where they focus solely on their exam preparation. It is vital advisers are supported to be proactive and diligent in their preparation, so they can feel positive about sitting the exam when they are ready,” he said.
Kaplan Professional has built a range ofy practice exams and face-to-face workshops for advisers.
It stated these have been developed in conjunction with the industry to offer robust preparation resources to help advisers feel more confident and better equipped to sit FASEA’s exam.
