One trainer has reported being inundated by brokers who are on track for completing their Diploma courses.
Intellitrain has said that it will likely issue more Diplomas in October than in the previous three months combined, with its assessors swamped by hundreds of brokers submitting their assignments.
"We've been impressed with the quality of assignments being submitted," Intellitrain CEO Paul Eldridge said.
"The upgrade from Cert IV to Diploma has been a real learning exercise for many brokers. We've seen the benefits of this knowledge being applied to our assignments as well as hearing from brokers who are writing business they didn't know how to write before," he said.
All students who enrolled in the 'old' Diploma (FNS50504) prior to November 24th last year must have completed all their assessments, been marked and have their qualification issued by November 24th, less than 1 month away. Intellitrain is blaming this for the last minute spike in assessments.
The MFAA has also revised its education deadline, with January 31st next year set as the absolute last chance for brokers to complete their Diplomas without putting their membership in jeopardy.
