TAL has released details of its 2019 Risk Academy program for advisers, which includes new courses and university partnerships intended to support advisers with FASEA education requirements.
TAL said key additions to its 2019 program included:
- A new FASEA Masterclass to help advisers prepare for the FASEA exam, which all advisers need to pass by the end of 2020
- A redesigned course structure that aligns with FASEA’s new Continuing Professional Development (CPD) system
The insurer also noted TAL Risk Academy students will also be eligible for fee discounts and pathway options with its university partners.
TAL’s Head of Licensees and Partnerships, Beau Riley, said the aim of this initiative is to support its adviser partners by providing resources and guidance to help them meet the new FASEA guidelines and provide the best possible outcomes for their clients.
“By completing courses from the TAL Risk Academy, advisers could subsequently save considerable time and cost by enrolling with TAL’s partner universities, where they can obtain discounts off their course fees and access a graduate pathway,” he said.
TAL advises its 2019 Risk Academy has added 13 new product-agnostic courses to its suite of over 60 courses, which are available via webinar, on-demand or face-to-face. It says the courses engage leading industry experts across a broad spectrum of areas relating to risk advice, including practice management and social media marketing.
The insurer noted more than 1,400 advisers attended TAL Risk Academy masterclasses in 2018.
