Life insurer TAL has launched another round of its virtual Financial Adviser Standards and Ethics Authority (FASEA) Exam Masterclass through the TAL Risk Academy.
Beau Riley, TAL head of licensees and partnerships, said passing the FASEA exam was an essential component of the educational qualifications that advisers needed to achieve before providing personal advice to clients.
“With only six more FASEA exam sittings left this year, we’re encouraging those advisers who have yet to sit the exam to consider the FASEA Exam Masterclasses in their preparation,” Riley said.
“TAL Risk Academy’s FASEA Exam Masterclasses are delivered in a virtual, on-demand format, which means advisers can review the content as many times as they like, even once they have completed the course.”
The masterclass was developed in 2019 and used interactive learning tools such as polling, practice exam questions and sample answers that helped to prepare advisers to sit the FASEA exam.
“In addition to preparing for the FASEA Exam, advisers enrolled in the FASEA Exam Masterclasses will also be helping young Australians from lower socio-economic backgrounds access quality education and reach their full potential,” Riley said.
“All TAL’s Risk Academy Masterclasses incur a $55 fee, which TAL donates to the Australian Business Community Network (ABCN).
“Since the launch of TAL Risk Academy in 2015, we have raised over $630,000 for the ABCN to help educate and mentor students to grow their skills, knowledge and confidence.”
The TAL Risk Academy will be launching its full program of courses in February.
