The Association of Financial Advisers has rebuilt its Fellow Chartered Financial Practitioner (FChFP) designation, launching a master’s program with Kaplan Professional.
Since teaming up with Kaplan in 2013, the association has been rebuilding the education program to reflect developments and changes in the financial advice industry, CampusAFA chief Nick Hakes told ifa.
“The financial advice landscape has changed dramatically over the last few years and the AFA views education and professional development as the next inflection point for our emerging profession,” Mr Hakes said.
“As a result, we have made a conscious decision to establish the FChFP at masters level and enable financial advice professionals a pathway to achieve the AFA’s FChFP designation and Master of Financial Planning [degree].”
The program’s inception comes off the back of feedback from clients indicating education is highly sought after, Mr Hakes said.
