Appointed representatives are expected to undergo continuing education so as to keep abreast of developments in the financial advisory industry and update their skills and knowledge in relation to the type of financial advisory services they provide.
Under MAS Notice FAA-N13 and SFA 04-N09, appointed representatives are required to undertake structured CPD, which includes a minimum of 6 training hours* in respect of Ethics; or Rules and Regulations, or both (referred to as Core CPD hours)
* Only training hours of courses in Ethics or Rules and Regulations or both, as the case may be, which are accredited by IBF or SCI will be counted towards the Core CPD hours.
