TAL updates risk education program
TAL has expanded its Risk Academy program through a new university partnership and added courses designed to be flexible for advisers.
TAL says its partnership with Charles Sturt University will provide accreditation, of its Risk Academy classes, towards the university’s qualifications.
The updated program will feature new ‘on demand’ sessions – from the AFA, the FPA and the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB) – that can be accessed at any time. It will offer continuing professional development (CPD) accreditation, as well as extended sessions focusing on estate planning and engaging new clients.
TAL general manager of retail distribution Niall McConville said the company is proud of its investment in professional education to help advisers grow their skills and their businesses.
“We understand the time demands placed on advisers, and our intent is to help our advisers attain the necessary and important education easily,” Mr McConville said in a statement.
“We wanted to reward advisers who are dedicated to quality advice outcomes by providing them with continuous professional development that encompassed a combination of workshop style and webinar sessions.
“Our client engagement courses have all been designed to enable advisers to generate leads and grow their business.”
