WHY DO I NEED TO DO CPD?

The Corporations Act 2001, as amended by the Corporations Amendment (Professional Standards of Financial Advisers) Act 2017, aims to raise the education, training and ethical standards of financial services professionals. The Act established the Financial Adviser Standards and Ethics Authority (FASEA), the standards body that is responsible for setting the education and ethical standards of licensed financial advisers in Australia.

Part of FASEA’s role is to determine licensees’ ongoing CPD requirements. It is expected that individuals will collect and maintain evidence of their CPD activity and provide CPD records to their licensee as part of their annual CPD obligations. FS Aspire CPD is a one-stop CPD solution that enables licensees and individuals to readily administer and generate custom CPD activity reports to meet their FASEA requirements.
