The Education Channel

The Education Channel is a recorded webinar service providing regular recorded webinar programs on issues of relevance to legal and accounting practitioners around Australia. It is sold on an annual subscription basis with subscribers receiving programs on a monthly basis (except December & January).

The Education Channel is specifically designed to assist professional firms to establish and manage their own in-house training programs. Each program is supported by a technical paper written by the expert appearing in the program and a set of study points to assist in group discussion.

Each program can form the basis of a one hour group study session with participants first reading the technical paper, then viewing the program and finally discussing the study points and formulating answers. On this basis, lawyers and accountants can earn 1 CPD unit for each program.


Each release subscribers receive programs to select from in the following subject areas:

Lawyers

  • Family Law
  • Wills & Estates
  • Estate Planning
  • Commercial Law
  • Property Law
  • 3 CPD Compulsory Subjects – these are all covered annually

Accountants

  • Taxation (2 programs)
  • Estate Planning
  • Superannuation
  • GST (or if there is no GST program, a third Taxation program)

The Education Channel is specifically designed to assist professional firms to establish and manage their own in-house training programs. Each program is supported by a technical paper written by the expert appearing in the program.


Each program can form the basis of a one to two hour group study session with participants viewing the program and discussing the program. On this basis, lawyers and accountants can earn 1 CPD unit for each hour of group study. (Lawyers should check their CPD rules as some states have restrictions on the amount of units that can be claimed for certain activities).

In addition to the monthly recorded webinar programs, subscribers also have access to the Subscriber First website containing a vast library of technical papers from all of the legal, tax and accounting programs produced.

The Education Channel comes in two versions:

  1. The Accountants' Education Channel
  2. The Lawyers' Education Channel

Within these two channels, there are a number of subscription options available depending on the number of programs subscribers wish to receive each month.
