Financial services education provider Kaplan Professional has begun running practice tests and face-to-face workshops to help entrants pass FASEA’s financial adviser examination.
Kaplan’s exam preparation workshops provide advisers with practical, detailed analysis of the examinable areas covered in FASEA’s exam and helpful preparation and performance tips, according to a statement.
Kaplan has also designed its Kaplan Adviser Practice Exam (KAPE) to mirror the conditions of the Financial Adviser Examination. Further, advisers will gain access to an online exam preparation room, and receive feedback and results to identify and pinpoint possible areas of improvement.
Advisers also receive resources to continue their preparation, as well as have the option to sit KAPE, after the workshop.
“Many advisers have already sat KAPE and the feedback we are getting is that it has been incredibly beneficial, particularly gaining an understanding of what it is like to sit a lengthy exam under supervised conditions with a similar style of questions,” said Kaplan chief executive Brian Knight.
“The workshops bring an important face-to-face element to exam preparation, offering advisers the ability to gain a deeper insight into what is being examined and how to prepare for it, while having the opportunity to discuss ideas and gain immediate feedback.”
Mr Knight said course advice teams have been proactively reaching out to our corporate clients and their advisers, and mapping out personalised education journeys specifying month by month when advisers should complete formal education and when they should focus on exam preparation.
“These are unique to each adviser because we acknowledge individuals have different priorities, commitments and obligations,” he said.
Kaplan’s full-day FASEA Exam Preparation workshop and KAPE is available monthly in Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.
