Recent changes in competency standards for giving financial advice prompted the training provider to open the New Zealand Certificate in Financial Services (Level 5) [Version 2] for enrolment in July 2019, followed by a continuing professional development course for already qualified advisers.

Open Polytechnic chief executive Dr Caroline Seelig said the increase in enrolments had been significant.

“Open Polytechnic has over 1,200 learners enrolled in the New Zealand Certificate in Financial Services (Level 5) for the first quarter of 2020. This is more than double the number of learners we had at the same time last year. The increases have come from our corporate clients such as banks, insurance companies and financial advice organisations, as well as individuals running their own businesses.”
