Kaplan has launched a graduate certificate in SMSFs for professionals seeking additional specialisation.

The postgraduate qualification will be delivered in partnership with the SMSF Association.

According to Kaplan, the qualification will focus on areas such as behavioural finance and best practices when guiding trustees through the stages of the SMSF lifecycle.

Individuals are required to complete three core subjects and one elective subject.

Professionals who complete the course will receive a certificate from Kaplan, which may make them eligible from specialist designation from the SMSF Association.

“The qualification has the highly regarded SMSF Association designations embedded into the program, enabling students to attain not only an academic qualification but also the association’s highly sought-after industry designations,” said Liz Ward, the SMSF Association’s head of education.

“We are thrilled to be able to support our members and the wider SMSF sector in their quest for higher education standards,” she said.
