MEDIA RELEASE

Following the reimposition of Stage 3 stay at home restrictions for metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire and the closure of exam venues, FASEA advises that Melbourne metropolitan physical location exams will not be offered for the August sitting. Advisers who have registered for a Melbourne physical location exam will have the option to sit the exam remotely or defer to October or a later sitting.

At this stage Geelong, Ballarat, Traralgon and Albury/Wodonga physical exam locations will continue to be offered.

This measure is being taken in light of the evolving COVID-19 pandemic situation in Victoria and in the interests of all involved with the Exam.

The exam administrator (ACER) will contact candidates registered for August Melbourne metropolitan exam sittings to explain their options to sit the exam.

ACER requests candidates ensure their email addresses are up to date in the registration system to facilitate this contact.

FASEA continues to monitor and will act upon the advice of the Federal and State Governments.

The Financial Adviser Standards and Ethics Authority Limited was established in 2017 to set the education, training and ethical standards of financial advisers in Australia.
