Certificate IV in Financial Services FNS41815
This qualification is intended to provide a flexible general purpose pathway in the financial services industry. It is intended to meet the training needs of employees with roles that involve working across a range of duties in the financial services sector where a specialist qualification is not the most suitable qualification to meet their training needs.
For current advice on ASIC compliance under RG146 refer to the advice bulletin on the IBSA website or contact ASIC.
The job roles that this qualification is likely to address are:
- Generalist financial services roles where a varied skill base is required
- Retail financial services officer in a small branch or organisation where the role is varied
- Retail or wholesale financial services administration staff (where a financial services qualification is better suited to address industry
and compliance knowledge/skill training outcomes to support employee in the role).
- Leading/supervising a team
- Performing duties of a first line supervisor
This qualification would provide a pathway into any Diploma level qualification in the Financial Services training package, based upon the electives chosen
Units of Competency
13 units must be achieved:
1 core unit plus 12 elective units.
8 elective units must be selected from the elective units listed below or from a Certificate IV qualification in this Training Package, a minimum of 6 of these units must be FNS coded units regardless of where they are chosen from.
The remaining 4 elective units may be selected from the electives units listed below, any endorsed Training Package or accredited course at Certificate IV or Diploma level. 2 of these elective units may be chosen at Certificate III level.
Where generic imported units are chosen, they must reflect the level of the qualification being taken and the occupational intent of the learner.
Note: Where the packaging of this qualification meets the rules of a specialist qualification at this level, then the specialist qualification and not the generic qualification must be awarded.
Elective units must be relevant to the work outcome, local industry requirements and the qualification level.
