The MFAA's mentor training programs have been recognised at a national training awards event.

The MFAA's Certified Mentor Program and its Train the Mentor Program were both finalists in the 'Best Implementation of a Blended Learning Solution Award' category at the National Training Excellence Awards last week.

The Department of Immigration & Citizenship was the successful finalist in this category, with the MFAA up against the likes of AMP, Ausgrid, the NRMA, Microsoft and Suncorp.

The awards, run by the Australian Institute of Training and Development, acknowledge innovation and best practice within the learning and development business community, with a focus on functionality and business outcomes.

MFAA CEO Phil Naylor said its training programs were a key part of its goal to constantly improve the professionalism and capabilities of all of the association's members.

"The talented team behind our national mentor programs, Rod Edge our executive director of professional development and events,  Therese O’Neill of Alpha Broker Mentoring and Karen Hambleton-O’Grady of Simply Mentoring have worked together to produce great results,” Naylor said.
