Diploma of Finance and Mortgage Broking Management

Modes Offered

Face-to-Face, Online

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 the industry associations such as the MFAA (Mortgage & Finance Association of Australia) or the FBAA (Finance Brokers Association of Australia). Upon successfully completing the Certificate IV 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.

In addition to the Certificate IV qualification, students may complete further training to achieve the Diploma qualification. This is an upgrade course. The College will need to view transcripts of your Certificate IV in Finance and Mortgage Broking if you completed this qualification with another training organisation.

The remaining eight (8) Units of Competency required to obtain the necessary skill set a achieve the FNS50322 Diploma of Finance and Mortgage Broking Management are:

FNSFMB512            Identify and develop credit options for clients with special financial circumstances

FNSPRM613            Grow financial practices
FNSRSK612             Determine and manage risk exposure strategies

This Diploma level qualification is the minimum requirement for membership of the MFAA.
