Why CPD is essential for your career

Under the Corporations Act 2017 (the Act) all individuals identified as a ‘relevant provider’ must meet the requirements for continuing professional development set by the Standards Body (s 921B(5)).

The Act requires the Standards Body to set requirements for continuing professional development in relation to each CPD year of a financial services licensee (s 921U(2)(iv)).

Additionally, it is an obligation under the FASEA Code of Ethics that financial advisers must develop, maintain and apply a high level of relevant knowledge and skills (Standard 10).
