TAL launches FASEA credits for Risk Academy

The life insurer has teamed with a university to allow recognised prior learning for a number of its Risk Academy courses.

In a statement, TAL said the new education partnership with Deakin University would allow advisers who complete three modules and assessment tasks through the group’s Risk Academy to be eligible for RPL credits for the university’s estate planning and risk management module as part of its FASEA-approved postgraduate course.

Additionally, the insurer’s online Risk Academy students would be eligible for a discount on course costs and tuition fees, the life insurer said.

“We are pleased to partner with Deakin University to continue to support the education needs of financial advisers,” TAL general manager of retail distribution Niall McConville said.


“Our partnership combines the learning resources of the TAL Risk Academy with the academic expertise of Deakin University’s Financial Planning arm to give advisers a more flexible and cost-effective education pathway to meet their FASEA education requirements and gain a qualification from one of Australia’s leading universities.”

“Deakin University is very happy to be partnering with TAL to develop this innovative and exciting initiative,” Deakin Business School director of financial planning Mark Olynyk said.

“The program was developed as a result of a close collaborative effort between the two organisations and it illustrates the focus that Deakin University has on working with industry to develop and deliver courses and training programs that meet the specific needs of the financial advice industry and the general community.”
