Some FAQs Regarding The Updated Courses

  1. What happens if I’m enrolled in a superseded qualification?

    A Student who is currently enrolled in a superseded qualification will be given a transition period to complete the course they are enrolled into.

  2. What is a Transition Period?

    A transition period is a period of time given to students who are currently enrolled in a superseded course, so they can complete their current studies.

    The transition period for the new FNS courses currently lasts until 14th June 2023.

  3. What happens if I don’t complete the course during the transition period?

    Students who are unable to finish the superseded course after the transition period ends will have to enrol into the new qualification, or into a transition course. Limited credits will be available between the old and the new courses, and extra costs are more than likely to incur.

  4. Should I undertake the old course or wait for the new one?

    It is best for students to enrol in the old FNS qualifications and strive to complete them before the transition period ends. These courses will continue to be recognised by the Financial Services sector anyway, despite its superseded status.

    You can enrol into the new courses once they are launched, and apply for credit for relevant units and experiences.

  5. Will I be able to work in the Financial Services Sector with superseded qualifications?

    Yes, you will still be able to work in the FNS sector, as superseded qualifications will still be accepted.

  6. I need more information regarding the new and updated Financial Services courses. Whom can I speak with?

    Inspire Education will continue to send you further updates and more information over the coming months.  If you have any questions, you may send a message to or book a call with your trainer via the Hub, or contact us at the dedicated email address: [email protected].
