Diploma of Financial Planning

Elective Choices

The Financial Planning electives that the Australian College of Professionals offers are Insurance, Managed Investments, Superannuation and Self- Managed Superannuation Funds.

Financial Planning

The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has set minimum requirements for the training of financial product advisors to give them a set of knowledge and skills appropriate to their activities and the financial products they work with. Anyone who provides financial product advice to retail clients must meet these minimum training standards by satisfactorily completing a training course provided by an authorised Registered Training Organisation.

The Australian College of Professionals is an authorised provider and assessor of these training courses and offers the Tier 1 RG146 Accreditation course for advisors working in the areas of Insurance, Managed Investments, Superannuation and Self-Managed Superannuation Funds (SMSF). By completing any one of the product area modules, plus the core Diploma module, you will be regarded as being RG146 compliant in that product area, and you may subsequently make application to become an authorised representative under an Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL). If you choose to complete more than one of the product area modules, you will simply have more Units of Competency listed on the additional Statement of Attainment that reflect these product areas.

The Diploma of Financial Planning courses are offered  via distance education.

“I would recommend anyone who wants to do relevant study in this college because: 1) training material is up to date, capturing industry latest development; 2) enrolment and distance education processes are easy to follow; 3) assessment is delivered within promised timeframe; 4) knowledge and skills expected from the subject are very clear.Although I have not had any experience with trainers due to my distance education mode, I have already seen the high professional standards from the college..”
“The customer services from this college are excellent: every time I went to the office I felt very well welcomed and assisted by friendly and efficient staff.”
