Already a subscriber? Log in now:

The Financial Standard CPD Program has been developed for those professionals governed by the Financial Services Reform Act 2001 and has an obligation to undertake continuous professional development (CPD).

The CPD Program is an ongoing professional development program integrated into the content of the Financial Standard Newspaper to allow subscribers, at their own pace, and when it suits them, to develop and monitor their knowledge and understanding of investment issues and practices. The program has been designed to either complement your other continuous education initiatives or be the foundation of a stand-alone program.

The Financial Standard CPD Program - Developing Excellence is complimentary to Premium Financial Standard subscribers.
