Our FNS50315 Diploma of Finance and Mortgage Broking Management qualification has been replaced by the FNS50320 Diploma, following compulsory government changes to the Financial Services Training Package, as endorsed by the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC).  No further enrolments in the superseded FNS50315 are available however enrolments are welcome for FNS50320.

Students who were studying the FNS50315 course must have submitted their assessment submissions by 31st of December 2021.  Some students may have had allocated completion dates prior to this, and those earlier dates remain in place.  With a 31/12/2021 completion date for all students studying the FNS50315 Diploma upgrade course or the Full Diploma course, who wish to continue with their studies, and have not submitted their assessments, will need to transition to the FNS50320 Diploma.  Transitions will constitute some additional study and assessment requirements and possible extension fees, depending on original completion dates allocated.  New students wishing to enrol in the Diploma course may enrol into the FNS50320 Diploma course.

Students who submitted their FNS50315 Diploma assignments prior to our holiday closing period of 21/12/21 to 6/1/22 will be marked prior to 28th January 2022.
