Diploma of Finance and Mortgage Broking Management
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.
