If you're doing the FASEA exam soon and you're just not sure you have everything covered, we've got your back.

The FASEA Exam Prep Live Online Web Series is interactive instructor led training designed to get you across all those things you need to know for the exam.  In each webinar, we'll take you through the theory you must know, and importantly, how to apply that theory (because that's what the exam is testing). 

Each webinar is at least 2 hours and because you have a live presenter online, you can ask any of those niggling questions (allow up to 2.5 hours per session). 

So, let us help you cover those FASEA prescribed exam topics in a practical way. See you online!

If you can’t make all of the days, the recording will be available to you for 30 days.
