    We have a team of tertiary-qualified paraplanners with domestic and international experience. We run an internal training program that develops key paraplanning skills. That program culminates with DFP qualifications with Kaplan and RG 146 compliance. All our paraplanners continue to develop their skills with ongoing external CPD training from Kaplan and other providers.
