The adviser association has teamed with a NSW university to offer a risk specific graduate diploma course for life insurance advisers that is FASEA compliant.
The AIOFP confirmed it was in discussions with Western Sydney University to develop a risk specific stream of its existing FASEA approved financial planning graduate diploma course.
The association planned to offer the course to its members at a discount and to also consult with the university on the risk advice content of the course.
“This course will be less daunting for risk advisers to pass, where all the unrelated economics and financial markets subjects will be dispensed with,” AIOFP executive director Peter Johnston said in a communication to members.
The course is planned to be made available to all advisers with more than five years’ industry experience or a previous Advanced Diploma level qualification.
While offered by Western Sydney University, the course would be available online for participants anywhere in Australia, with study conducted both independently and in remote group sessions.
Students would be required to take an exam and develop an assignment for each subject within the course.
