The Financial Adviser Standards and Ethics Authority (FASEA) has cancelled its April 2020 face-to-face exams amid the coronavirus outbreak.
FASEA said that the measure "is in the best interest of all people involved with the exam".
"FASEA is conscious of the need to continue to offer exams through the remainder of 2020 to enable existing advisers to meet the legislated time frame," FASEA said in a statement.
"The exam provider, ACER, will make the April exam available to registered candidates as a remote online option – irrespective of the distance to an exam centre. An option to defer until June or a later sitting is also available to candidates."
ACER will directly advise candidates registered for the April exam of details regarding registration and sittings.
ACER requests that candidates keep their email addresses up to date in its registration system.
