His vision is that of empowering the Financial Services Industry through education.
Integrity is a concept of consistency of actions, values, methods, measures, principles, expectations, and outcomes. In ethics, integrity is regarded as the honesty and truthfulness of accuracy of one’s actions.
Being professional requires that you comply willingly with the highest ethical standards and that you have a deep awareness and understanding of appropriate business behavior in various cultures. It also requires a high degree of knowledge, skill, ability, attitude and sound judgment.
It is both character (who you are) and competence (your strength and the results you produce). This is a person on whom one relies because he/she consists of high levels of integrity, strength, ability and surety.
The quality of service refers to the perception of the degree to which the service meets the customer’s expectations.
What determines if you are a quality person?

Happy to report that I have successfully completed my RE 5 on the first attempt at 86%. I first and foremost, give the glory & thanks to my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, who never fails to defy the odds. A special thanks to Johann Cloete, CFP®, founder and director of Integrity Academy. Their workshop and material was insightful, fun & easy to understand. I used their question banks to stay on par with the material and this came in handy in the exam. They also took the liberty to provide us with great sandwiches at the workshop :). To those that have been asking me how i achieved this; i will post a article shortly. Hope this will help.

Integrity Academy 27 February 2018 Dear Johann When I first contacted you…I though to myself am I going to waste my money on study material and mock exams…never the less I said to myself…I have already written the RE5 3 times and failed. What will it be just to pay and get study material and give it a try. I personally though if I do not pass after purchasing and getting support from Johann then I will never attempt this again. I will let my dream of being a Financial Advisor never happen. When I chatted with Johann…there was so much confident in his words…I said to myself I am going to do it the Integrity Academy way. Johann also said to me the notes I was studying from was not updated and assured me after I study the material I purchased from him together working with the mock exams I will pass. He assured me that every student who came to his Academy passed first time… I didn’t believe him 100%. When I wrote my exams on the 26 February 2018…I was so confident…The paper I was given was amazing… the questions was so easy to understand and answer…I sat and completed my paper in 1hr 20mintues…and didn’t go back and re-check. I knew I have passed before I can get my results. The proof in the Pudding Walla…got my results today and I PASSED. I will definitely recommend anyone to you… Thank you Johann…you helped me achieve my goal. Thank you Shaida
Dear Johann, I meant to send you a message after writing my RE exams during December, but was caught up in the rush to finalise mountains of work. I passed both RE1 and RE5 on the first try and only completed 3 or 4 mock exams prior to writing. I will most certainly recommend Integrity Academy to any candidate who wishes to enrol for the exams. Kind regards, Sean Barnard
Thank you for the assistance in helping me pass my exam

I've had the privilege of joining a professional learning academy with integrity, insight and energy and look forward to a life long journey with Integrity Academy founded by Johann Cloete. I would highly recommend Johann Cloete, CFP® for any financial planner wanting to continue further study. The greatest investment you can make is not in property, shares or commodities but in your character and thinking through preparing your heart and mind. Frank Agliotti
