RG 146 Licensing: Training of financial product advisers

Issued July 2012

This guide is for:

  • advisers (i.e. Australian financial services (AFS) licensees and representatives who provide financial product advice to retail clients), and
  • providers of training and education for advisers.

This guide sets out minimum training standards that apply to advisers and how advisers can meet these training standards.

Editor’s note: Effective 24 September 2012, Sections D and E of this guide are under review. The review will enable ASIC to explore options pending final policy positions following from CP 153 Licensing: Assessment and professional development framework for financial advisers.
