Please note

This course is  for financial advisers who hold the National Certificate in Financial Services or NZ Certificate in Financial Services (V1).


If you hold the NZ Certificate in Financial Services Version 2 (2019+), this course provides no additional benefit towards your CPD Requirements.

The regulatory framework for financial advisers has changed.

One of the changes is a new Code of Professional Conduct for Financial Advice Services (the Code) which sets revised standards of competence, knowledge, and skills for a person who gives financial advice.

 NZ2315 New Zealand Certificate in Financial Services (Level 5) (version 2) has been designed to meet those standards.

 The Code recognises both NZ2315 New Zealand Certificate in Financial Services (Level 5) (version 1) and NC1476 National Certificate in Financial Services (Financial Advice) (Level 5) as alternative qualifications.

 However, Standard 9 of the Code requires advisers with those qualifications to obtain an up-to-date understanding of the new regulatory framework for financial advice as part of their continuing professional development.
