Self-managed superannuation fund (SMSF) services provider SuperConcepts has launched 30 online training modules aimed at helping SMSF practitioners stay up to date with the latest legislative reforms, while also satisfying ongoing continuing professional development requirements.
“The launch of these training modules means SMSF practitioners now have access to a series of online training modules covering all the technical aspects of providing specialist SMSF advice in an easily digestible, scenario-based format,” SuperConcepts general manager of technical services and education, Peter Burgess said.
The modules have all been assessed for CPD points and as each is completed the participant’s CPD history is automatically updated, and they can access their CPD history online at any time for compliance monitoring purposes, SuperConcepts said.
The modules’ scenario-based approach allows students to take on the position of an adviser dealing with a number of virtual client situations. They are provided with potential answers which they are encouraged to research using legislation excerpts, short legislation interpretations and audio anecdotes from SMSF technical experts.
“We didn’t want to overload students with too much technical content in one go so the content is delivered in short bursts across 30 modules, with each module taking on average 60 minutes to complete,” Burgess said.
If 30 modules are completed within a specified time period, the student would receive a certificate of completion from the University of Adelaide indicating the student has obtained the RG146 SMSF knowledge requirements to provide specialist SMSF advice.
