Salt CPD

A new approach to continuing professional development

GRC Solutions has been appointed e-learning partner for the Stockbrokers And Financial Advisers Association (SAFAA). The partnership coincides with the announcement by Kelly O’Dwyer, Minister for Revenue and Financial Services, that new requirements to raise the competency and ethical conduct standards of financial advisers will commence on 1 January 2019. This includes compulsory education requirements for new and existing financial advisers, supervision conditions for new advisers, an industry-wide benchmark exam and a code of ethics as part of the mandate.

GRC Solutions will be offering an array of new online courses that is tailored specifically for SAFAA’s members, including those practitioners who provide tax advice.

Salt CPD is a new interactive learning product being developed by GRC Solutions, a long-standing leader in award-winning compliance and regulatory e-learning. It will allow stockbrokers and industry professionals to meet CPD requirements by offering a library of relevant, to-the-point and quality learning. All content will be developed in conjunction with and approved by the Stockbrokers And Financial Advisers Association.

  • Short Selling
  • Anti-Bribery and Corruption
  • Anti-Money Laundering
  • Rumour Handling
  • Continuous Disclosure

  • Ethical Decision Making
