Why complete the course?
Australia’s ageing population is an ever-growing phenomenon. As baby boomers begin to retire, advisers and funds are increasingly being called upon to provide expertise in aged care.
ASFA has partnered with Aged Care Steps to make available the Accredited Aged Care Professional™ Program, a practical workshop-based course designed to give financial advisers the knowledge and skills to provide specialist aged care advice.
This course will allow you to provide a holistic service to your clients and expand your offering beyond ‘traditional’ financial advice, by giving you the confidence to build and present various strategies to allow clients to make an informed decision.
