The Australian College of Professionals conducts a training program for people to undertake an in-depth study of Mortgage Broking. These are practical-based workshops which provide course participants with opportunities to acquire and practice new skills in the mortgage broking industry.


As a minimum requirement, most lenders now require you to become a member of an industry associations such as the MFAA (Mortgage & Finance Association of Australia) or the FBAA (Finance Brokers Association of Australia). Upon successfully completing this training program, you will have the qualification required for membership to the FBAA for the Accredited Mortgage Broker membership. However, the MFAA requires its members to hold the Diploma of Finance and Mortgage Broking Management qualification.

Both of these industry bodies may require you to meet other requirements, which may include completion of further training which is only offered by these industry associations.

The qualification gives you an excellent understanding of critical aspects of the finance and mortgage broking industry, enabling you to offer sound advice to clients. This qualification is the minimum requirement for membership of the FBAA.

Certificate IV in Finance and Mortgage Broking


“I studied Certificate IV in Finance and Mortgage Broking and also Diploma of Finance and Mortgage Broking Management at the ACOP. I was very impressed with the level of engagement and the quality of the course material. Our trained Graeme Porter was exceptional with his in-depth knowledge and years of experience. College Principal Rosy was so nice and patient and easy to talk to. She made sure we had a nice learning environment and provided us with endless lollies and awesome snacks. Other members of the College such as Chanelle and Michelle were very prompt and efficient with any enquiries I sent them. Another trainer Daryl was super responsive with my assessment questions. I am very proud graduate from the college and would have no hesitation recommending it to my friends, family and colleagues”
