Kaplan Professional has received approval from the Financial Adviser Standards and Ethics Authority (FASEA) for the Graduate Diploma of Financial Planning and bridging courses as stand-alone subjects.
Kaplan Professional’s Graduate Diploma of Financial Planning commenced in January 2014 and individuals currently enrolled would be able to continue their studies in the updated course structure.
To meet FASEA requirements, individuals would need to complete Kaplan’s FPC002B Ethics and Professionalism in Financial Advice which was a FASEA-approved course in ethics for professional advisers.
Enrolments into the updated Graduate Diploma of Financial Planning would open on 24 June 2019 for study period 5, which commenced on 2 September 2019.
A stand-alone offering of FPC002B was available for immediate enrolments in study period 4, which commenced on 8 July 2019.

- FPC002B Ethics and Professionalism in Financial Advice (aligns to FASEA bridging course: Ethics for Professional Advisers)
- FPC001B Economic and Legal Context for Financial Planning (aligns to FASEA bridging course: Financial Advice Regulatory & Legal Obligations)
