Diploma of Financial Counselling Diploma of Financial Counselling [RURAL]


RAPAD Skilling delivers the latest Diploma of Finacial Counselling. 

The CHC51115 Diploma of Financial Counselling reflects the role of financial counsellors working in the following two contexts: Generalist financial counsellors and Rural financial counsellors.
•     Generalist financial counsellors who work in a variety of agencies that meet the requirements for the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) exemption from a financial services or credit licence under ASIC class order 10/1063. Financial counsellors work across a variety of metropolitan, rural and remote settings.
•     Rural financial counsellors who undertake specialised financial counselling work that assists primary producers and rural small business owners in debt, and are employed in agencies funded for this purpose. These agencies meet the requirements for the ASIC exemption from a financial services/credit licence by meeting the conditions of ASIC class order 11/926.

The course is typically 12-18 months in duration and is a blend of self directed study and face to face clusters.

To achieve this qualification, the candidate must have completed 220 hours of work as detailed in the Assessment Requirements of units of competency. 

RAPAD Skilling may grant recognition of prior learning (RPL) if a clinet can provide sufficient, current, valid and authentic evidence of prior knowledge or work experience.
