Face to face training with our specialist presenter. Our workshops are an opportunity to not only get up to speed with the knowledge you need but to discuss the issues and ask your questions.

So, do you do practice questions?

Yes, we do but our focus is on ensuring you have all of the knowledge you need to complete the exam (not just an acknowledgement of what you do or don’t know).

We have exam style Q&As throughout all of our FASEA exam prep training and we provide you with a brilliant little answer guide after the training so you can better understand why the answers are the answers.

Our training walks you through the theory you must know, and importantly, how to apply that theory (because that's what the exam is testing).

Exams will be marked to a credit level and the candidate will be awarded a “pass” or “fail” on this basis.

If you fail the exam, you need to wait 3 months before you can sit the exam again. Do not leave it until the last minute to sit the exam. If you have not passed the exam by 1 January 2022 you will not be able to continue to provide financial advice.

  • Financial adviser regulatory & legal obligations(Corporations Act chapter 7, anti-money laundering, Tax Agents Services Act)
