FPA launches new CPD platform

23 July 2019

The Financial Planning Association (FPA) has launched a new continuing professional development platform designed to handle the requirements of the both the Financial Adviser Standards and Ethics Authority (FASEA) and the Tax Practitioners Board.

The so-called My CPD platform is being promoted as giving access to up to 4,000 hours of CPD from over 100 suppliers in one place.

Commenting on the new platform, FPA chief executive, Dante De Gori said the organisation had set out to build a solution for its members that gave the largest aggregation of FPA and FASEA-accredited CPD options in one place.

The FPA announcement said the platform would give members a list of CPD options from the FPA and key sector providers, including webinars, courses, articles, quizzes and workshops with members able to search by CPD area, number of hours and delivery format.

It said the CPD tracker would allow members to track and measure their CPD to ensure they fulfilled all their personal CPD requirements.

Good idea. But it begs the question of why advisers are subject to separate requirements from FASEA and TPB? Surely it's time for TPB to butt out of it bureaucratic overreach into financial advice, and just focus on tax agents.

If the government was looking for a quick and easy win in their plans to reduce red tape this would be a good place to start.
