The Financial Planning Association of Australia has launched an online portal it says is designed to cut through misinformation and confusion about FASEA’s higher education requirements.
The Return to Learn portal promises easy access to accurate information on the latest education and ethics policy developments and implications, as well as study tools, the FPA said in a statement.
It said the portal has explanations of FASEA policies, code of ethics and education tools in one central hub, as well as a guide to study credits, video tutorials on topics like preparing for exams, and information on various approved tertiary education providers, including course costs and required time commitments.
The FPA said the portal was developed in-house by its education and policy experts with co-operation from FASEA-approved tertiary education providers.
“There are many thousands of ethical, professional, committed financial planners around Australia ready to do what it takes to meet FASEA requirements between now and 2024,” said FPA chief executive Dante De Gori.
“Many are confused by misinformation flying around as to what they need to do next, however, and frankly there’s no time for confusion. Australia needs us to take the high road when it comes to education and ethics.
“Return to Learn cuts through the noise and misinformation to make the path forward as clear and easy as possible for our 14,000+ FPA members to navigate.”
