FASEA approves additional recognition of prior learning

FASEA has approved applications for the recognition of coursework and further university bridging courses to meet the education standard.

Advisers who have completed coursework to attain the FChFP and/or ChLP designation between May 2009 and June 2013, offered by the AFA, have been awarded one credit recognition for prior learning (RPL). Advisers who have completed Professional Diploma in Stockbroking coursework to attain the SAFAA Specialist designation, from 2001, have also been awarded one credit RPL.

The approved RPL courses have been added to FASEA’s Approved Recognition of Prior Learning List.

“The awarding of credits for coursework to attain the AFA’s and SAFAA’s designations provides appropriate recognition to existing advisers who have undertaken these further studies,” said FASEA CEO Stephen Glenfield.


FASEA has also confirmed its approval of the Financial Advice Regulatory and Legal Obligations and the Behavioural Finance Client and Consumer Behaviour bridging courses for Swinburne University, and FASEA will continue to assess any further applications received from higher education providers in respect to courses to meet FASEA’s education standard.

“The approval of Swinburne’s bridging courses build on the body of courses approved by FASEA and provide additional choice to advisers seeking to meet the education standard,” Mr Glenfield said.

Since 2017, FASEA has approved 66 historical courses, 63 bachelor or higher degrees and 27 bridging courses.
