Big Numbers for TAL’s FASEA Exam Masterclasses


The introduction of masterclasses in 2019 to help financial advisers prepare for the FASEA adviser examinations has helped TAL’s product-agnostic adviser education programme, TAL Risk Academy,  record its strongest uptake rates since it launched four years ago.

After the introduction of its FASEA exam masterclasses in July 2019, TAL Risk Academy increased its offering from 16 classes to 60 and the insurer says the courses were booked out with almost 2,500 advisers subscribed and more than 12,000 CPD hours of education provided towards advisers’ FASEA accreditation.

In addition to the exam support course programme, TAL Risk Academy also introduced courses during 2019 to meet the new FASEA CPD requirements.

TAL Head of Licensees and Partnerships, Beau Riley, said in a statement late last month that the key to the courses’ success lay in their product-agnostic nature, and that they had been designed to support all advisers, from those new to the industry to the very experienced.

“We took a practical approach in guiding advisers through what for many is a potentially daunting process,” said Riley.

TAL Risk Academy has also introduced new webinar sessions which aim to provide advisers with the latest updates around FASEA education requirements and seek feedback from advisers around their priority areas for training and development.

The new TAL Risk Academy Prospectus is expected to be available for licensees and advisers during January.
