I agree 100%. Get your FASEA qualifications then drop the CFP. It is worthless. Look at job ads. No-one wants CFP, they only want FASEA approved quals. If you need tax and law course to satisfy TPB, do a cheap course, then save your money for years to come. The FPA have done more harm than good. Those running the joint are failed financial planners who are using their job as a stepping stone into a cushy Government role or executive job with one of the major institutions. They have no interest in the advancement of our profession.
