How do you become a Mortgage Broker?
By June 30th, 2014, responsible managers working within a mortgage broking firm and credit respresentives (i.e mortgage brokers working for a mortgage broking firm who assist customers in finding suitable loans) will be required by law to have a Certificate IV in Financial Services (Finance/Mortgage Broking). On top of the Certificate IV, responsible managers of a mortgage broking firm will also need to demonstrate at least 2 years of problem-free experience.
Credit representives such as mortgage brokers working within a large firm and operate on behalf of the mortgage broking firm, won’t need any actual experience however, they will be required to have their Certificate IV. In any case, even now in the transition phase, although the Certificate IV in Financial Services (Finance/Mortgage Broking) is not yet a legal requirement, nearly all employers will require you to have it unless you have a minimum of 2 years experience as a mortgage broker in which case you may be able to find employment now, but you will still need to complete the Certificate IV before the deadline of June 30, 2014.
The good news is you can complete your Certificate IV in Financial Services (Finance / Mortgage Broking) online or by correspondence through distance education. This means you can enrol and start immediately, study from home at your own pace with the assistance of a tutor that you can contact whenever you need help with your studies while continuing to earn an income as you study. Your Certificate 4 is a Centrelink Approved course meaning that you may be eligible for one or more of the several available study support benefits to help pay for your course and support you while you’re studying.
