FASEA has announced it will offer only remote exam options to Melbourne advisers in November as lockdown restrictions in the city continue.
In a statement, the standards authority said due to “the continued closure of Melbourne exam venues”, physical exam options were not able to be offered to Melbourne advisers in November.
“Advisers who have registered for a Melbourne physical location exam will have the option to sit the exam online or defer to January or later sitting,” FASEA said.
Due to easing of restrictions in regional Victoria, advisers in Geelong would still be offered a physical exam session, the standards authority said.
“This measure is being taken in light of the evolving COVID-19 pandemic situation in Victoria and in the interests of all involved with the exam,” FASEA said.
“The exam administrator will contact candidates registered for November Melbourne metropolitan exam sittings to explain their options to sit the exam.
“FASEA continues to monitor and will act upon the advice of the federal and state governments.”
