Aggregator launches 'Broker Academy'

by Julia Corderoy23 Feb 2016
Major aggregator Finsure Finance and Insurance has announced the launch of a new training program for mortgage and finance brokers.

Scheduled to begin in April this year, the 24-month Broker Academy program is targeted at new-to-industry brokers. 
  
Each graduate will obtain their Cert IV and a Diploma in Finance and Mortgage Broking Management, as well as develop skills in sales, lead generation, compliance, business management and CRM systems.

Finsure national sales manager Simon Bednar says the program is designed to help brokers thrive in a highly competitive industry.

“Where this program differs from any other in the industry is the attention to detail.

“We don’t just provide the basic tools, but ensure our mortgage brokers are completely prepared for their future mortgage broking career once they graduate from our Academy.

“NCCP only requires mortgage brokers to obtain their Cert IV in order to become a credit representative. However, we ensure that all graduates obtain a Diploma of Finance and Mortgage Broking Management to broaden both their broking and business skills, and set themselves apart from other brokers in the industry.”

The Finsure Broker Academy will be head up by newly appointed national learning & development manager, Anthony Zveglic. 

Zveglic is a qualified training professional with significant training experience in Registered Training Organisations (RTO) and has more than 25 years working in the finance industry. His experience includes time at major lenders, including Westpac and major mortgage broking companies, including Mortgage Choice.

“Anthony’s extensive experience and understanding of broker training is second to none. We have the utmost confidence that with him at the helm, our program will become the benchmark from which others compare themselves,” Bednar said. 

Finsure already has plans to expand the program, based on overwhelming initial interest.

    It is a case of monkey see monkey do. Didn't VOW just announce something similar a few months ago? How about you look after your existing brokers first before bringing in new to industry brokers that will require more hand holding.
