FNS40815 Certificate IV in Finance and Mortgage Broking
As a minimum requirement, most lenders now require you to become a member of the mortgage broking industry associations such as the MFAA (Mortgage & Finance Association of Australia) or the FBAA (Finance Brokers Association of Australia). Upon successfully completing a Mortgage Broking course with the Australian College of Professionals, you will have a qualification to apply to the MFAA or the FBAA for the Accredited Mortgage Broker membership provided that you meet their other requirements, which may include completion of further training which is only offered by these industry associations.
The courses are offered in face-to-face workshop modules, online and via distance education.
The assessment process for this qualification is staged over a period of three (3) months and is undertaken through the ACOP online portal. In order to meet the educational requirements of the qualification, students need to demonstrate their competence over a period of time, and not all in one assessment task. As such, each student will be provided access to specific modules at specific times, namely:
- Access to questions and practical tasks for Modules 1 & 2 upon enrolment for online student or upon completion of face-to-face workshop
- Access to questions and practical tasks for Module 3 granted 30 days after enrolment or completion of face-to-face workshop
- Access to questions and practical tasks for Module 4 granted 60 days after enrolment or completion of face-to-face workshop
- Access to questions and practical tasks for Module 5 granted 90 days after enrolment or completion of face-to-face workshop
