Last week’s article on RG146 standards caused a bit of commotion among Wealth Professional readers.
Comments ranged from readers calling RG146 “a joke”, to others saying the requirement was “more than enough for anyone to complete and enter the industry.”
“I completed the RG146 course 3 years into my career as a Planners Assistant. I already had the knowledge I needed to get started in the industry but not the qualification… yes RG146 taught me what I already knew. But it was a better option than going to uni full time for at least 2 years than starting again,” said another reader.
Wealth Pro has decided to gauge just how the industry feels by posting a poll on our website and calling for you to have your say.

RG146 is enough
A mandatory tertiary qualification
A number of years’ experience
None of the above, something new
