Life insurance specialist TAL has added additional Risk Academy Financial Adviser Standards and Ethics Authority (FASEA) Exam Masterclasses, to keep up with adviser demand.
Commencing in July, the TAL Risk Academy FASEA Exam Masterclass would focus on supporting advisers in exam preparation to help with first-time success.
They have doubled sessions in most locations, which are being hosted in Brisbane, Newcastle, Melbourne and Geelong.
Beau Riley, TAL head of licensees and partnerships, said the masterclasses had played an important role in addressing confusion and anxiety around the process.
“We understand this is something which falls outside of most advisers’ day to day experience, and yet it’s an essential step in enabling them to continue providing financial advice to their clients,” Riley said.
“We know there is a huge amount of knowledge and expertise within the financial advice sector, and these courses are designed to help de-mystify the way in which that knowledge will be tested as part of FASEA compliance.
Existing advisers are required to pass the exam before 1 January 2021, while new and returning entrants to the industry are required to pass it after completion of a FASEA approved degree and before commencing quarter three in their professional year.
