The Responsible ASIC Registered Agent
ASIC places an obligation on registered agents to keep up-to-date, comply and implement processes within their businesses that ensures compliance with their registered agent responsibilities. In 2020, ASIC announced ongoing registered agent gatekeeping/compliance programs. With ASIC’s increased focus on compliance programs, it’s never been a better time to revisit ASIC’s expectations of ASIC Registered Agents.
What’s this course all about?
CPD For Accountants has partnered with CorpSec Services to deliver The Responsible ASIC Registered Agent self-paced eLearning course. The course is presented by ASIC registered agent specialist Viola Pythas, the founder of CorpSec Services.
Many registered agents don’t fully understand their obligations or the consequences of non-compliance for themselves as an agent and also for their clients. This course focuses on providing agents with a detailed understanding of their obligations, ASIC lodgement requirements, with a particular focus on supporting minutes and related governance documents. This is a unique course aimed to equip ASIC registered agents with the skills and resources required to provide high quality corporate secretarial services to their clients and navigate ASIC lodgements.
The course will take 15 hours to complete, inclusive of module presentations and assessment tasks. All learners who complete the course will receive a certificate of completion.
Learners have access to the course for 12 months, however they are encouraged to complete the course and assessment requirements within 3 months of enrolment.

Feedback on the course:
“This course has been developed by a practicing ASIC registered agent, specifically for other registered agents. It combines in one course, a diverse range of topics to equip those undertaking corporate secretarial services with confidence. The course is not software dependent and is not software training. It focuses on governance practices, regulatory requirements, ASIC lodgements and tips and tricks to assist ASIC agents in their role. Over 450 ASIC registered agents, company secretarial officers, responsible officers and ASIC administrators attended the webinar on ‘The Responsible ASIC Registered Agent’. Now the content has been expanded and is offered in this self-paced eLearning course with 15 CPD hours of training“.
