What's the point of discounts that are only valid until mid 2020? That's effectively only one semester. Those advisers needing to do Grad Dips will need to be studying well beyond that timeframe, and are likely to face large price increases after they have locked themselves into a particular institution. Sounds like a dodgy marketing tactic.

Please resign Dante. These are the guys that made a submission to FASEA stacked with Broke University academics in 2017/18 calling for prior experience, CFP, Degrees to be worth about 20 points out of 100 and called for a new Bachelor of Financial Planning only approved by their FPEC subsidiary to be the sole benchmark degree.

20,000 people listed on the FAR at $2,000 a subject doing say anywhere from 1 to 8 subjects and so let's say 5 subjects that's still a massive $200 million dollar windfall to the University sector. What's going on here Has a Volume based payment with the FPA been negotiated perhaps?

We can now add this breakthrough to the list...so far it now consists of the ability to witness a stat dec as the FPA's biggest achievement in the last 20 years.
