AIST’s Advanced Trustee Director Course is designed for experienced trustee directors and is a step up from the Trustee Director Course Build Your Expertise. This contemporary course will further enhance your effectiveness in the boardroom.
The structure of the course has been informed by discussions with APRA regarding trustee director skills and the rapidly evolving business environment for funds.
The Advanced Trustee Director Course has a focus on developing the competencies of the board as a collegiate body which robustly debates issues before taking decisions in the best interest of members.
The course is designed for trustee directors with three or more years of trustee board experience and fund senior executives who seek deeper superannuation-specific board skills, knowledge and experience. It will benefit those who are taking up or aspiring to chair positions or roles within the board and board committees and those who want to continue to improve their skills and knowledge base.
Participants can undertake individual modules in investment, risk, strategy and/or board culture and governance or complete all five modules and earn the post-nominal of GAIST (Adv.) - Graduate of Australian Institute of Superannuation Trustees Advanced Trustee Director’s Course.
To obtain the full 24 CPD hours assessments must be completed for each module and for the course overall. The assessment requirements will be outlined on the first day of the course.
