Further to this, in order to work in many of the top organisations, you will be required to have completed a Diploma level qualification, as well as completing 2 years of mentoring with approval by one of the major industry bodies, such as the MFAA, or the FBAA.

This mentoring program can cost up to $20,000, but unlike many other training organisations, it is included in the Australis College Diploma of Finance and Mortgage Broking Management at no additional cost to you.
