One of the key requirements for an AFS licensee is to demonstrate the organisation's competence, as set out in ASIC RG 105 AFS licensing: Organisational competence. Licensees can demonstrate this by maintaining and updating the knowledge and skills of their Responsible Managers.

Our online half-day Responsible Manager workshop has been designed to provide Responsible Managers and compliance staff with an overview of the role of the Responsible Manager, how they fit within the broader regulatory framework, and help in meeting the licensee's obligation of maintaining organisational competence.

Who should attend?

  • AFSL Responsible Managers
  • Compliance managers, compliance staff and support staff who need to understand the role of Responsible Managers
  • People nominated as Responsible Managers (but who, as part of a licence application, are required by ASIC to undertake a training course like this one before ASIC will allow them to be Responsible Managers)
