Financial Education Professionals is a leading provider of technical training in financial services. We deliver innovative, contemporary training solutions developed by prominent industry experts and education specialists.
This short course covers the knowledge and skills necessary to offer general product information related to self-managed superannuation funds (SMSFs) ethically and professionally. It also addresses additional training required by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) to provide general advice in the RG 146 Tier 1 financial product area of SMSF.
It is designed for:
- representatives of funds, trusts, platforms and other providers that offer solutions for SMSFs
- advisers who have previously studied RG146 learning on superannuation that did not sufficiently cover SMSFs, and who therefore need to undertake specific product training in relation to SMSFs before advising on these products.
Our course is updated at least annually to ensure its content remains current and incorporates any legislative and regulatory changes.
To be RG146 compliant to provide General Advice in Tier 1 SMSF, you must also successfully complete Generic Knowledge and Superannuation.
