QUESTION:

What is the Diploma of Financial Planning (DFP) worth in 2019 for those NEW TO INDUSTRY in 2019?

ANSWER:

In 2019, the Diploma of Financial Planning (DFP) will be a great entry qualification for anyone SEEKING A CAREER (New to Industry) in the broader Financial Planning industry, such as a Paraplanner or Client Services Officer (CSO) role (to name only a couple).

The DFP will provide with ADMISSION & CREDITS (upto 8) towards a FASEA Approved DEGREE (24 units in total) offered by Universities. This means DFP GRaduates will receive credit of up to 1 YEAR towards a FASEA Approved Degree.

The number of Credits & Admission Pathways will differ between Universities, and Integrity Education can provide individual guidance in relation to this.

The DFP is an entry requirement to the Advanced Diploma of Financial Planning (ADFP).

The ADFP will provide up to a FURTHER 4-6 CREDITS towards a FASEA Approved DEGREE, and may provide CREDITS towards a Grad Dip of Financial Planning (Postgraduate).

By completing the DFP (& ADFP) New to Industry participants (in 2019) will be able to work and earn income whilst studying, and RECEIVE CREDITS & GAIN ENTRY to a FASEA Degree.

This will SAVE BOTH TIME & MONEY – two of the most sought after ASSETS!
