The Financial Adviser Standards and Ethics Authority has announced it will recognise past coursework done to attain a professional designation from the Financial Planning Association of Australia.
Advisers who, after 1 July 1999 and before 31 December 2003, have completed the CFP 1-4 program coursework to attain the FPA CFP designation are eligible to be awarded two credits recognition for prior learning (RPL) in an approved graduate diploma, FASEA said in a statement.
Following an application for approval from the FPA, FASEA said it approved the CFP 1-4 program coursework after recognising the course content and assessments advisers are required to undertake to successfully complete the program.
“The awarding of credits for the CFP 1-4 program coursework to attain the FPA CFP designation provides appropriate recognition to existing advisers who have undertaken these further studies,” said FASEA chief executive Stephen Glenfield.
