The National Adviser Exam just got Technical

With an extension reading list that looks like an advert for a university bookshop clearance sale, FASEA released its adviser exam timetable late last week.

Also in the release is a set of exam practice questions. Whilst it is valuable insight into the way exam questions might be presented, there are some concerns for specialist risk insurance advisers.

Among the questions are references to estate planning issues and Centrelink rules. This suggests that there may be a sprinkling of technical-related content in the exam.

Whilst all advisers should have a handle on powers of attorney and the need for a will, risk insurance advisers might want to brush up on the basics in other technical areas.
