Staff training plan development

Responsible Person (including Trustee Directors) and Responsible Manager support
SCS provides support and training to assist Responsible Persons and Responsible Managers to build their expertise in RSE, AFSL and fiduciary obligations. In addition to this, SCS provides knowledge and skill assessments, competency matrix mapping, specific training recommendations, training plan development (to assist with APRA’s fit and proper requirements) and CPD monitoring.
Super Set will set you or your staff up with the knowledge they need to navigate the world of superannuation without getting too heavy into the detail of a RG146 course. Students suited for this course include new employees to the superannuation industry or other professionals in business areas such as information technology, marketing and project management.
Students will be set up on SCS Online where they can self-select areas they would like to focus on first, or alternatively they can start from the beginning and work their way through the 11 sections and assessments. Students will have 12 months to access the course notes and complete the course.
Upon completion a Certificate of Completion will be issued. Six (6) structured continuing professional development (CPD) hours can be allocated towards RG146 Superannuation and relevant RSE competencies1.
1 Please note that as this is not one of SCS’s RTO courses, completion of Super Set cannot be used for future credit or RPL purposes.

How to give General Advice (GA)
Employers typically find an RG 146 qualification provides participants with the knowledge but not the skills of how to provide general advice. SCS’s How to give General Advice course provides the tools representatives need to move from giving factual information to confidently having engaging general advice conversations.
Course material is accessed via our online portal, SCS Online, and covers the areas of:
- What is General Advice
- General Advice discussion structure
- Conversation areas:
- Contributions and consolidation
- Benefit payments
At the end of each area up to five (5) multiple choice and short answer questions are asked to help consolidate the student’s learning. In addition, students then have three (3) opportunities to practice these new skills via phone conversations with one of SCS’s qualified trainers, with feedback provided.
Upon completion a Certificate of Completion is issued with six (6) structured continuing professional development (CPD) hours allocated towards RG146 Superannuation and relevant RSE competencies1.
1 Please note that as this is not one of SCS’s RTO courses, completion of the How to give General Advice course cannot be used for future credit or RPL purposes.
