If you are an existing licenced financial adviser as at 31 December 2018, you will be able to take advantage of transitional arrangements allowing you to meet the new educational requirements.

The RG146 Compliance Solution program will provide you the pathway to RG146 Compliance, the level of education required to become a financial adviser to provide financial advice to your clients.

CPA Australia strongly advises that candidates have a Year 12 or equivalent comprehension level of language, literacy and numeracy skills to undertake this program.

Superannuation is the centrepiece of Australia’s wealth accumulation industry, and understanding it is at the heart of good financial and retirement planning. As superannuation is a compulsory part of an Australian employee’s remuneration, it is a crucial part of financial planning.


To pass each module, you must complete an assessment consisting of a written assignment and a telephone role-play scenario. The assessment tasks are designed to enable you to demonstrate your skills and ability against the key areas of competency covered in each module.

You must achieve competency in all the relevant competency units to be deemed ASIC compliant.This course is offered under CPA Australia’s RTO (CPA Australia Registered Training Organisation Number: 7144).
