Build your expertise, the foundation level of AIST’s Trustee Director Course provides directors and fund executives in superannuation with a comprehensive overview and understanding of the trustee director role.
The Trustee Director Course 1 (TDC1) builds a comprehensive grounding in trustee director duties and obligations, fund operations, risk frameworks, financial statements, investment principles and the workings of the board. It lays the groundwork to ensure that you have the requisite knowledge to undertake a new director role in the superannuation sector. TDC1 will also be of value if you are an executive or a manager needing to understand governance issues in depth.
To obtain full CPD hours an assessment is to be completed for each module as well as one for the course overall.
A total of 36 CPD hours can be obtained for completing the full course and all assessments.
Additional information on CPD is available here.
Further information on the assessment will be outlined on the first day of the course or you can contact training@AIST.asn.au for information.
The AIST Trustee summit is very informative. Providing information and advice that is both relevant and responsive to current issues facing trustees. AIST have been agile in the face of COVID-19, changing how the summit is delivered to ensure that it remained accessible to all. Great presenters as usual and the interactive Q&A sessions was worth logging in for.
This course is also available to in-house groups. If you wish to conduct an in-house digital session please contact AIST Education to arrange a suitable time on (03) 8677 3800 or firstname.lastname@example.org

The use of technology was excellent, and the breakout room feature worked particularly well; the half-day modular format over 4 weeks allowed me to be available to do my critical work and complete the course.
Chair, LGS, Director, Credit Union Australia
The superannuation sector-specific policy coverage and the investment module were particularly valuable; having industry experts who discuss how things work in practice as well as covering the theory works really well.
Tax Manager, Group Tax, AustralianSuper
The practical trustee boardroom skills and superannuation knowledge is enriched with the interactive discussions and valuable insights shared by all of the facilitators and participants.
