Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How many hours of CPD will I actually receive?

You will receive 12 hours each year over 3 years to cover your specific audit CPD.


As a bonus we will also credit you with a further 10 hours each year from our SMSF Video Vault. The 10 hours for the video vault is only available to subscribers from one of our other courses. 


In total, this will give you 22 hours per year, over 3 years, you will receive 66 hours in the program. 


Q: How does the monthly subscription work? i.e. what access, how many workshops are available? Can you opt out at any time?

On the day you join, you will receive the first module immediately. On the monthly anniversary, you will receive a new module.


Each May and each November, the training will be a webinar that is an SMSF update. You can attend webinar or watch the recording in your portal.


There are 30 pre-recorded training modules in the series (plus 6 webinars covering 36 months).


Once you have completed a module you will continue to have access to that module while ever you are member. 


You can cancel at any time and if you give us 7 day notice you will not be billed again. You merely need to email us to info@advisersdigest.com.au to cancel. 


We are not like other online businesses that try to make it impossible to cancel. 

Q: Do you give a certificate for my CPD?

You can request your certificate when you complete your annual modules; when you complete and pass the quiz for each module; your certificate will be labelled as "verified"; and you have unlimited attempts to complete and pass your quiz.

Q: Am I able to have a trial period to see what it contains?

In terms of a trial period, we offer a full refund within 30 days of joining. So by all means sign up even on the annual plan, watch the training to see if it fits and if it doesn’t we will fully refund your fees.



Q: Where can I find Regulatory Guide or other in terms of the requirements for SMSF auditors?  

Please see here from CPA Australia.


Many auditors are disputing my claim of the hours required. The ASIC Regulatory Guide does not correlate with the requirements of the professional bodies. This is all covered in Module 1. If you are an IPA, CPA Australia or CAANZ member then you need to comply with their requirements as well as ASIC's. Each of the professional body's requirements (thankfully they are all the same) can be found here:


CPA Australia here


IPA Members, click here( right hand column of page 9)


CAANZ Members, click here (Paragraph 5 to Schedule 1 to Current Regulation 7 (CR7)

Q: I'm not convinced... Why should I take this course?

Remember our course also covers the audit and financial statement preparation requirements of CPD not just SMSFs (although the majority is SMSF). On top of the 12 hours a year we give you for the auditor training we also give you another 10 hours of generic CPD by way of giving you access to our video vault.


If you are worried about the price you will appreciate getting 22 hours of CPD, without giving up any days out of the office, for as little as $999 per year. This is around $300 per day (ex. GST) of CPD. Most days are double (or more) of that.

Q: For the monthly training videos - how long will these be available after each month before expiring? and can they be viewed twice, or stopped and started at a different time?

You will have access to the videos whilst ever you continue to be a paid up member.


You can view the training at anytime 24/7. It's like watching Netflix, you can pause, rewind, or fast-forward as many times as you like. All you need is internet connection. 

Q: I prefer to do all 10 modules at Once, Is it possible?

Yes, it's possible when you are on a yearly subscription. We can unlock all 10 modules at once. 


That means there's no refund once all 10 modules are unlocked. 


If you prefer to unlock 3 years' worth of modules, we can also do that by getting you paid for 3 yearly payments of $999.
