FS Aspire CPD's innovative platform aligns with the new codified FASEA standards and with ASIC's RG146 education requirements, offering a seamless user experience and dedicated administrative support that will make completing and managing your CPD requirements an engaging and effortless experience.

Financial advisers, fund managers, superannuation and financial services professionals will benefit from the hundreds of hours of CPD accredited content that is available, which has been sourced from global leaders in wealth management.

Through the FS Aspire CPD platform, individual and corporate subscribers will be well-equipped to achieve their ongoing CPD requirements, supported by an experienced Financial Standard team that has been providing CPD services since 2009.

  The importance of CPD

The Corporations Act 2001, as amended by the Corporations Amendment (Professional Standards of Financial Advisers) Act 2017, aims to raise the education, training and ethical standards of financial services professionals. The Act established the Financial Adviser Standards and Ethics Authority - FASEA - the standards body that is responsible for setting the education and ethical standards of licensed financial advisers in Australia.

Part of FASEA's role is to determine licensees' ongoing CPD requirements. It is expected that individuals will collect and maintain evidence of their CPD activity and provide CPD records to their licensee as part of their annual CPD obligations. FS Aspire CPD is a one-stop CPD solution that enables licensees and individuals to readily administer and generate custom CPD activity reports to meet their FASEA requirements.
