TAL has added additional risk academy FASEA exam masterclasses in order to keep up with rising adviser demand.
The masterclasses commenced in early July and travelled across the country, with initial sessions in Brisbane, Newcastle, Melbourne and Geelong fully subscribed.
The masterclass focuses on supporting advisers in their exam preparation, providing key information that advisers need to be aware of in the lead up to the FASEA exam.
TAL head of licensees and partnerships Beau Riley said the classes were an important part in addressing the confusion surrounding the exam and its contents.
"We understand this is something which falls outside of most advisers’ day-to-day experience, and yet it’s an essential step in enabling them to continue providing financial advice to their clients,” Mr Riley said.
Mr Riley said that there was a lot of information that needed to be covered and the courses were just one element to get advisers ready.
“We know there is a huge amount of knowledge and expertise within the financial advice sector, and these courses are designed to help de-mystify the way in which that knowledge will be tested as part of FASEA compliance,” he said.
The masterclasses are led by TAL’s national technical managers David Glen and Scott Hoger and will be rolled out across the country through to October.
