** Interesting quirk/conflicting information** The recent FASEA release does not mention anything about a note made in the "Explanatory Memorandum" associated with the Corporations Amendment (Professional Standards of Financial Advisers) Act 2017 which states:
2.28 There are two options for persons completing their professional year. First, they may undertake work and training for the purposes of theprofessional year when they do not hold any authorisation to provide advice. For example, the person may perform appropriate paraplanning orresearch work as determined by the body. Second, if the person undertaking their professional year has obtained a degree or higher qualification and passed the exam, they may be authorised as a provisional relevant provider.
Does this mean a Professional Year can be completed concurrent with, or prior to, Degree and Exam requirements?
