The Education Pathways online tool is designed to assist both new and existing advisers in determining their education pathway and the education they will need to complete to meet the education standards contained in S921B of the Corporations Act (2001).
To ensure you get the most out of the Education Pathways tool, it is advisable to have available for reference, your academic transcripts and any completion certificates from relevant courses including coursework to attain professional designations.
The Education Pathways tool will ask a series of questions related to an individual’s circumstance and on the basis of the information entered, provide feedback on the education pathway and courses that will need to be completed to meet the education standard.
For further information on the education standards, please refer to FPS001 Education Pathways Policy. For the approved list, please refer to FASEA’s Approved Programs List.
This tool is provided for guidance purposes only. The results generated by this tool should not be your only source of information about the steps that you must take to meet the Education Standard. Ensuring financial advisers meet the Education Standard within the required timeframes remains the responsibility of their Licensee.
The results generated by this tool are based on the information entered by the users of the tool and by the information about course names, codes and dates given to FASEA by higher education providers. FASEA accepts no liability for any errors resulting from misinformation or omission of information provided to it. In all other matters relating to this tool, FASEA disclaims liability to the maximum extent permissible by law. It is possible for a New Entrant or Existing Adviser’s position to change in the future, if for instance they undertake additional study or if a degree, qualification or course they have already undertaken is added to the Corporations (Relevant Degree, Qualifications and Courses Standard) Determination 2018.
Note, that if the information on your degree transcript (e.g. course names or course codes and lists or core or elective subjects) differs from the information displayed on this tool as being the conditions under which a degree is “approved”, please contact FASEA directly by email at enquiries@FASEA.gov.au
