  • Welcome to the 2014 Catalogue for FEP Online FEP Online is the online learning platform for Financial Education Professionals Pty Ltd. This is a dynamic catalogue as we are constantly adding to our suite of subjects depending on our clients’ needs and market changes. The subjects on this platform vary from short subjects to full qualifications. Therefore, the format of each differs according to depth, pitch and content. In addition, as they are e-learning courses, they employ a variety of tools and activities aimed at capturing the participant’s attention and underpinning learning. All of our subjects attract points/ hours towards continuing professional development. Most subjects employ “learning checks” which can screen existing knowledge up front and test learning as the participant progresses. Many also employ formal assessments at the conclusion of the course. To assist in your choice, we have provided classification in the following Industry Areas:          Accounting; Banking; Compliance – ACL; Compliance – AFSL; Compliance Professionals; Custody & Operations; Financial Markets; Risk Management Self Managed Super Funds In addition, we have advised of the pitch of each subject as:    Introductory – no presumed knowledge is required Intermediate – some presumed knowledge and an expectation that you already work in the area. At this level, the subjects are aimed at expanding pre-existing knowledge. Advanced – a lot of presumed knowledge and work experience in the subject knowledge area. At this level subjects are aimed at challenging and analysing known concepts.
