The FULL Diploma – no pre-requisites

Our FNS50322 Diploma qualification is available having been updated following compulsory TGA changes, as endorsed by the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC).   If you were studying the FNS50320 Diploma course, transitions to the new FNS50322 Diploma are available. Transitions may involve some additional study and assessment requirements and possible extension fee, depending on your enrolment date.

FNS50322 DIPLOMA – designed and developed in consultation with industry experts, this nationally recognised comprehensive course is recognised by the MFAA, FBAA and ASIC and by lenders and aggregators within the mortgage and finance broking industry alike. There is no pre-requisite for this full Diploma course.

The Diploma of Finance & Mortgage Broking Management is available for those seeking to broaden the scope of their existing broking skills and business.  It is designed to provide additional depth of understanding of both management skills and complex lending.  This qualification reflects management roles in finance and mortgage broking where work is undertaken independently, through an aggregator, or involves managing a workplace team. At this level individuals are expected to apply theoretical knowledge and specialised skills in a range of situations and to display initiative and judgement in planning activities.
