The new requirements under the Financial Adviser Standards and Ethics Authority (FASEA) represent a seismic shift in the management and delivery of financial advice. For existing advisers, the FASEA exam must be passed to maintain your status as a Financial Adviser. If advisers do not pass the exam within the relevant time period, your existing work and experience will not be recognised and you will need to meet the criteria set for new entrants to the market.
Created to get you exam ready, this intensive workshop is designed by industry specialists to bring you up to speed as quickly as possible. It's pragmatic, detailed and backed-up by reference materials to support you.

So, you think ethics is ‘soft’? We explore the requirements under FASEA and the border line issues that will test your knowledge and compliance with the Code.
Has it been a while since you sat an exam? We recap the most effective ways to study to maximise your time and results. Beware the danger of thinking you can simply wing it because you work in this field - your ‘practical’ or common knowledge might not align with the theoretical knowledge required.
Existing advisers must pass the FASEA exam by 1 January 2021.
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 2021 you will not be able to continue to provide financial advice.
