ETITO postpones Christchurch exams and assessments

ETITO is making changes to accommodate advisers affected by the earthquake, cancelling and postponing exams and assessments for the National Certificate in Financial Services.

Wednesday, February 23rd 2011, 2:13PM

There were 24 advisers due to sit the Standard Set B examination in Christchurch today and they have been contacted with news of the exam being cancelled.

ETITO will also review other planned exam sittings in Christchurch, ensuring that arrangements for all future sittings are considerate of the need for advisers to have sufficient time to deal with new and other priorities as a result of the quake.

"Advisers will not incur any additional fees as a result of the need to change bookings."

ETITO will also be contacting advisers with Standard Set C assessments booked to discuss arrangements.

"We know that some advisers may have lost, or lost access to, portfolio or other information for the planned assessment and we will ensure future assessment plans consider these circumstances."

ETITO says it has not yet established contact with all of its Christchurch-based assessors but it is considering options to provide back-up assessment in Christchurch drawing on assessors from other parts of the country.

It is also working closely with the Securities Commission and other agencies to ensure advisers affected by the earthquake are supported in their endeavours to achieve authorisation.

"Our thoughts are with the advisers and their families who have been affected by Tuesday's earthquake," says ETITO.

"We appreciate that this is a very difficult time particularly for the families and colleagues of those who remain missing in the central city."
