He said Australis College was the first place found that offered the course he wanted and after speaking with the team, decided he did not need to look further.

The expert support and post course mentoring program were two of the main reasons behind his life changing decision.

As a recent graduate, Mr Engwirda said, “The course delivery and the expert trainers made study so easy. I have to say Leisa Crew in particular was and still is an amazing resource that I can tap into.”

“Leisa was always accessible and I probably shouldn’t say this, but she even answered some I my email questions on weekends! Now that is phenomenal,” added Mr Engwirda.

Mr Engwirda studied the Australis College FNS50315 Diploma of Finance and Mortgage Broking Management.

He said, “The flexible learning options made it easy for me to manage my work and study loads and I would highly recommend study if you are thinking of changing careers.”

“I now have complete confidence in delivering a range of mortgage products and helping customers better manage their mortgage and wealth building. It is a far cry from the days of sanding!” added Mr Engwirda.

Mr Engwirda says he now has a new reason to spring out of bed in the mornings.

“With my young family and my new career, I have never been so confident about my future. My mortgage business allows me to make a good income, help people build wealth for their future, as well as achieve a work-life balance,” added Mr Engwirda
