The Stockbrokers and Investment Advisers Association’s (SIAA’s) RG146 accredited courses are uniquely designed for those in the securities and derivatives industry.
They set the standard that employers, regulators, and the investing public expect from individuals who are employed within this industry, offering training for licensees and advisers who:
- provide general advice in Derivatives, Securities, Managed Investments, Foreign Exchange or Superannuation
- are already listed on the Financial Advisers Register and wish to add an additional RG146 specialist knowledge area to their existing credentials
- and Licensees whose representatives provide advice to wholesale clients (Optional under RG146.35)
They also meet the requirements for Market Participants in relation to DTR training. Download the flier.
For each course completed, individuals will receive RG146 Certificate of Completion and Professional Standards Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours. Professional Standards education requirements must be completed by 1 January 2026 by any adviser providing personal financial advice to retail clients.
