When the FSCA’s competence requirements took effect in 2018, financial advisors needed a simple and affordable way to meet these requirements. Our Online CPD Package was launched in response to these needs and financial advisors are seeing value in it. 75% of financial advisors who used the package during the 2020/2021 cycle, had used our online CPD package before – this shows that once you experience the convenience of our online CPD package, it makes sense to stick with it.

With the new CPD cycle in full swing, consider making use of our package to help you plan and simplify your professional development process, ensuring you achieve your CPD targets on time.

Why you should use our Online CPD Package as part of your professional development plan:

  1. More than 150 relevant online learning activities.

You get access to more than 150 CPD-approved online learning activities including online courses, newsletters, articles, podcasts and videos – each of which have been allocated between 0.5 and 3.5 CPD hours.

  1. Automatic goal setting and CPD tracking.

Our goal setting feature and CPD tracker will help you monitor your CPD hours earned throughout the cycle. This tool allows you to set the number of CPD hours needed for the cycle, the CPD topics you prefer and gives you a clear snapshot of your CPD progress every time you log in to the Learning Centre.

  1. Access to an Online Competence Register means your time spent on admin is minimised.

All CPD hours earned using the package will automatically be tracked and logged in your personal online Competence Register – minimising time spent on admin.

  1. It’s cost-effective.

We want to stay committed to providing training that is convenient, accessible and affordable for all. Therefore, we are offering the CPD package at the same price as last year so you can meet your CPD targets in a cost-effective way.

  1. Online learning is convenient.

Online learning allows you to enjoy the convenience and flexibility of gathering your CPD hours anywhere and anytime.

CPD is an ongoing process and it’s a good idea to develop a process that works for you at an early stage of your CPD cycle to ensure a smooth and simple way to maintain and enhance your professional knowledge and skills. Even though our CPD package is available throughout the CPD cycle, we recommend that you sign up sooner rather than later – this way you can plan and pace your training over the entire CPD cycle.
