Westpac-aligned groups Securitor and Licensee Select offered up a record number of continuing professional development (CPD) points to advisers attending their annual convention held in Hobart last week.
Each delegate had the opportunity to earn 22.75 CPD points, an increase of 30 per cent from the CPD points available at the 2013 Convention, according to a statement from BT Financial Group.
Securitor and Licensee Select managing director Matt Englund said the increase in CPD points reflects the “commitment and focus of its adviser network to ensure professionalism and education standards are at the core of its adviser community”.
“Our advisers know that when they join Securitor and Licensee Select they are joining a focussed group of business leaders who are looking to set new standards in the financial planning industry,” he said.
“For them, CPD points are both an attractive and necessary part of their ongoing qualifications and reflect their ongoing commitment to deliver the best outcomes to their clients,” he added.
The Securitor and Licensee Select’s 2014 Convention had a total of 101 sessions held over four days, with 91 individual content submissions to be made from participating presenters.
In line with FPA guidelines, Mr Englund said Securitor and Licensee Select have successfully raised the education standards of this year’s Convention by setting “tight standards and expectations” with all its content developers and presenters.
