As an RTO we have had happy students for well over a decade – since 2004. Here are some real testimonials from trainees who have either completed one of NFI’s recognised courses or attended one of NFI’s workshops.
Thank you for your time and putting me in touch with the trainer. He was really great. Expert and really great communicator. I learnt soo much in that hour. Hoping for the pass and excited to write some loans!
Very Flexible course
It’s a wonderful course and flexible for people who working & studying at the same time. I have very good experience with your staff and very supportive during the studying period.
FNS40815 Cert IV in mortgage broking study
The Cert IV was really well structured and practical. I really enjoyed it! A real pleasure dealing with you!
Very helpful with Cert IV
Louise was very helpful and kind to me during this time. I will definitely stay in touch for further courses and all the CPD hours needing to be done.
FNS50315 online – a pleasant experience
I just want to say thank you very much and I sincerely appreciate the certificate. I feel like this course has challenged me enough and provided sufficient support/information in order to not only succeed but test and prepare myself for the broking industry. The flexibility suited me very well for my circumstances. It has been a pleasure. Thank you again to the NFI team.
I really do appreciate all of the help every member of your team has given me, I am really blown away with your level of service! Thanks again for everything. I will be raving about NFI to anyone who has [sic] either upgrade or any finance qualifications, you are all seriously outstanding at what you do!!
The topics that were most valuable to me were on marketing and dealing with clients and the examples of mortgages and working on the examples to get a clear idea of what’s involved. The course was presented in a clear and easy way to allow for us to understand the aspects of mortgage broking.
Easy to get to
Thoroughly enjoyed the 3 day workshop with Liz. The facilities were great and easy to get to by public transport. All the 12 units were extremely important and relevant to the Finance and Mortgage Broking industry.
One of the best
One of the best courses I’ve taken. It challenged me, but in a good way. Learned so much. Trainer was very supportive and understanding. Listened to all our comments and assisted us where we had questions. 20 out of 10!
RPL for Cert IV
The service has been superb. Love the attention to detail and follow through. Will surely pass on your details to all new candidates. Thank you kindly.
Sydney Diploma Workshop
Thanks for the course at the end of last month, it was actually very interesting and I found it so much better than sitting down and looking through a book! I would recommend it to anyone else who needs to complete this course.
He (the RPL assessor) was very helpful as you were. I will surely recommend you guys every time someone asks me about finance and cert 4 👍👍
Diploma of Finance and Mortgage Broking Management FNS50315
Thank you for your notification. I’m so glad to hear the good news. Thank you for your online course, I learnt a lot from it and I will certainly choose your courses to meet my CPD requirement.
Very impressed. Even with all the information covered, the want to keep my brain going was high. So very happy and excited to complete the rest of my assessments.
The trainer was so friendly and conducted her training in an interesting way and made it easy to understand. We like to interact with her. It was a good course.
Fast certificate for Cert IV in Bookkeeping
Hi, my certificate came today! Wow, I can’t believe how fast it was. Thank you all so much for everything , it was such a pleasurable experience studying with NFI! Please tell John I say thank you as well. Regards.
I would like to heartily give thanks to “The National Finance Institute” team for the outstanding “face to face workshop” and all the help and support during and after the workshop.
For a quick short course, everything was really good
A great resource that puts the essentials of mortgage broking marketing into one, easy-to-read handbook. While it isn’t rocket science, the handbook provides the fuel to propel an average business to improved heights.
Marketing handbook for brokers
Your handbook is totally focused and relevant to the marketing efforts of mortgage brokers. We have already started to implement just a few of the many ideas and programmes and have no doubt that positive results will follow. An excellent product that I strongly recommend to all brokers.
We are a husband and wife team, totally new to mortgage broking. We have resigned from our IT jobs and have gone into mortgage broking full time to give it our best shot. After some research, we decided to make your Handbook our bible. We are going to implement it to the letter and spirit and with full energy and faith.
Insightful in expectations and how to keep clients happy – great motivating ideas.
Workshop has real life examples
Excellent. I really appreciated the real life examples outlined to correlate with each learning module.
Hard to improve upon. Ten out of ten. Fantastic!

FNS50315 Diploma workshop Brisbane
This was a very relevant and well presented course. I enjoyed it and learned an enormous amount of new knowledge.
Certificate IV online
I have today received my exam results which will complete this program for me. Many thanks to the Trainers involved and their preparedness to address issues raised by students, it has been most helpful. I have certainly gained a much better understanding of this area because of this program.
I just want to thank you for the efficient handling by NFI of our Cert IV upgrade. As you know we are powering along very well at the moment with around 25 brokers in my team nationally. When I sat in your classroom just on 4 years ago, I had no idea that my business would have grown to where it is now. Thanks for the great training you provided back then. It was an excellent platform to launch my career from.
One of the best
I do a lot of extra training [courses] at work and this has been the best course I have been on in a long time.
I really found the training exceptionally good, in depth and realistic. Easy to understand.
Very happy with classroom study
Trainer was very informative and had a very good grasp of all topics presented. Very happy I chose the classroom option of the course.
Loved the workshop
Full of stories and humour which makes difficult terminology and concepts become real and not theoretical. I really loved it ….. and handbook is fantastic as all information is there to look up, thank you.
Certificate IV class
The training session was very informative and the presenter was knowledgeable and approachable. He made sure to keep the tone light and fun despite the seriousness of the content. This made it easier to keep focused.
Professional workshop for new brokers
Very educational through (trainer’s) own experiences. Made it easier to relate to scenarios that we may be presented with in real life. Extremely professional.
Real life stories a value add
If the presenter had little experience this would not suit me. Peter’s stories, examples and experience were a great value add.
Presenter experience was very valuable. Materials excellent – easy to understand. Great resource.
Thank you for the fantastic facilitation of the Cert IV in Financial Services. I really enjoyed the day (RPL workshop) and was very impressed with your style of teaching. It made what would normally be ‘dry’ content into a really engaging and interesting course. So thank you! I will definitely be recommending your company for future training requirements.
I have really enjoyed the course and found the NFI program to be very comprehensive with practical ‘hands on’ advice that will serve me well as I begin my career in the mortgage industry. This is only the start of my training and I know I have a lot to learn! At least I know I am off to a good start.
I thought the trainer was brilliant. The way she presented material helped make sense on how to implement in business. It gives you the confidence to then go ahead and self-learn for the future.
Very good style, trainer listens to students and interacts very well. Good material. Best course attended in a long time, thank you.
I have gained a fantastic understanding of the mortgage industry and believe that this course is an excellent preparation for any individual, like me who wants to enter the industry and be successful. Thank you for delivering the course material in easy to read text and for the invaluable research tool it will become for reverting back to at a later stage. In closing I would like to thank you for allowing me the flexibility to complete this course as an external student and have enjoyed it immensely.
Thanks a lot for emailing me the certificate. It is really a great course as the materials are organised. And I have also reviewed all the comments of assignment and exercise and it does help me to take points. Thanks again. I will come back to you guys when I need further professional knowledge.
The course was fantastic and the lecturer was wonderful in every aspect.
Very good fun and easy to understand.
Excellent facilitator – great presentation.
The course was very informative and well presented. A pleasure and very helpful.
Excellent presenter – would thoroughly recommend this course
Very good teacher. I have learnt a lot this week, even though the material was not new to me.
The trainer proved to be very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and helpful. It made the four days very enjoyable. Thank you and well done.
Thank you for the course, it was great. Peter was the consummate professional.
I have been impressed with the professionalism of NFI at all stages of the course and I will be recommending your institution to people I meet that are thinking about mortgage broking as a career.
I have learned a lot from this course, thanks for providing such an excellent course. I hope I can find a mortgage broker job with my knowledge.
Training online was easy, friendly website and instructions even a layman can understand. Nice course content and practicable course module. Thanks for all your help and if anyone else interested would definitely recommend you guys
Great webinar, information was very informative.
Liz is an outstanding and engaging trainer with a deep knowledge of the content and industry. One of the best educators I have experienced.
Very clear trainer with informative instructions in relation to this course; Would highly recommend.
I attended just the one day “top up” for the Diploma course. The content for the day was exactly what I wanted so that I can complete my Diploma studies.
Fantastic course! Liz encouraged us to speak up when not sure about something, very friendly, relaxed and professional!
Trainer was brilliant!. Professional, engaging 100% of the time. Spoke clearly and made me feel extremely at ease in the class.
The course covered the info well. Love it and recommend to others.
Excellent presentation skills; course material was explained very well.
Fantastic course, so glad I changed from Kaplan.
Liz was brilliant, clear and concise. Made the training enjoyable but also I personally learnt a heap.
The best aspect of the training was the ability to ask questions and hear others ask also, and to get answers on the spot while it was relevant
Just a quick note to say a big THANK YOU for your assistance, support and understanding throughout my enrolment with the Cert IV mortgage broking course.
When it comes to studying new things, my preference is to learn in a workshop setting (which you do offer). But my mentor chose to pay for and enrol me in the online course, so I didn’t have much say in the matter. As I have no previous industry experience, I found the course challenging, but not too over-whelming. The material was presented in an easy-to-follow format, and it has helped me learn the basics of becoming a mortgage broker. I am especially impressed by how you were able to put yourself in my shoes and understand me. I can’t wait to start on the Diploma, knowing that I can call on you for assistance if I get stuck.
I would like to commend your organization on the layout and interface used in the online course Certificate 4 Accounting as well as the swift service. The interface is very streamlined, logical and user friendly.
Liz was good. Lots of industry experience clearly helps.
It was very useful for me and I am so happy to have Liz’s class.
Fantastic, couldn’t imagine doing this by correspondence. Face to face course was amazing.
It has been a pleasure studying through you. Alison was great. Very quick to respond to my questions and very helpful when I didn’t understand things.
Thank you so much for making my studying easy and such a pleasurable experience.
Liz is incredibly knowledgeable and has a great presentation style. For dry content she certainly makes it a fun environment.
Liz was an excellent trainer, gave me confidence to start my new venture. Can’t wait.
I had a minor heart attack when looking over the course content at home. But at the workshop Liz presented the information in a clear and concise way, which finally helped me to understand the finer details of the assignments.
I just wanted to thank you Peter very much for the fantastic Cert IV course you provided over the past 3 days in Melbourne. I have to say that it was one of the most interesting and well presented courses I have been on (and I have been on many – especially IT ones!). Your obvious passion, expertise and real-life examples were much appreciated!
Personally, I think it’s good to attend the workshop instead of doing it online as you can learn a lot from other members’ questions and experiences.
Liz is superb, she is perfect for the role, very approachable, genuine, caring and articulate. I wish there was more publicity about the Diploma workshop being suitable for commercial lending. If I knew I would have stayed for the Diploma.
Excellent trainer, loved every minute of the course!!! Fine food, amazing venue.
Fantastic choice to choose this course. Much appreciated and thanks! Keep in touch!
I love this course and it proves to be beyond my expectation. Thank you very much Peter. How to touch and retain our clients was the most valuable topic to me.
As someone new to mortgage broking, I found the topics very valuable to me. And in last topic Peter gave us advice on how to build up and maintain our client base. I think this is very valuable to me. I’m so glad to spend these 3 days with Peter. I have learnt a lot, not only the techniques but also he gives us a lot of advice on how to be a good broker. A great experience.
“Peter, thank you for your time the past few days, it was awesome to engage with your experiences and knowledge, and I truly learnt so much that I know with certainty will help me grow.
Fantastic real life scenarios and actual practical experience. One of the best trainers in my long professional career as a chartered accountant. Thank you Liz!
The course was fantastic. Liz was excellent, made the topics very interesting, so it was easy to understand.
Thank you so much for your prompt response. You are an excellent marker. The National Finance Institute is lucky to have someone as efficient as you.
Even though I work in the industry already, I thoroughly enjoyed the course. I was engaged and learned. Thank you..
Peter, thanks once again for your efficient service and prompt attention. I will be sure to recommend more people to you in the future.
All topics helped me and gave me knowledge to start my career.
Liz was absolutely delightful, not to mention insightful, easy to listen to and engaging. I found this course extremely helpful in understanding the role of a mortgage broker. Was very impressed, thank you.
