Education Pathways Tool

Welcome

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.
