Financial Adviser Standards and Ethics Authority (FASEA) board member, Dr Mark Brimble has resigned his position as chairman of the Financial Planning Association initiated Financial Planning Education Council (FPEC).
The FPA confirmed Brimble's resignation late today.
The statement said his resignation had followed FASEA's announcement of its decision to adopt FPEC's framework and course approval list.
The resignation comes amid heated debate about guidance issued by FASEA around the framework and course approval list.
Sharon Taylor, Senior Lecturer at Western Sydney University and current Deputy Chair of FPEC, will be acting as Chair until the FPA Board appoint a suitable replacement.
