TAL has announced additional Risk Academy FASEA Exam Masterclasses will be available to keep up with adviser demand.
It has reported strong uptake of its Risk Academy Masterclasses which are designed to help financial advisers prepare for the Financial Adviser Standards and Ethics Authority examinations.
Since early July, the TAL Risk Academy FASEA Exam Masterclasses have been travelling across the country, with initial sessions in Brisbane, Newcastle, Melbourne and Geelong fully subscribed and some reporting wait lists.
TAL’s Head of Licensees and Partnerships, Beau Riley, says the Masterclasses were playing an important role in addressing confusion and apprehension around the exam process itself, as well as the content the exams will cover.
“We understand this is something which falls outside of most advisers’ day to day experience, and yet it’s an essential step in enabling them to continue providing financial advice to their clients,” Riley said.
“…these courses are designed to help de-mystify the way in which that knowledge will be tested…”
“We know there is a huge amount of knowledge and expertise within the financial advice sector, and these courses are designed to help de-mystify the way in which that knowledge will be tested as part of FASEA compliance.
He noted the response from attendees has been “overwhelmingly positive” and they have had to double their sessions in many locations to meet the level of demand.
Attendees will sit a practice test as part of the FASEA Masterclass, led by TAL’s National Technical Managers, David Glen and Scott Hoger.
TAL confirmed the Masterclasses will continue to be rolled out across the country through to October, and advisers can click here for more information.
