Trainer swamped in Diploma assessment rush

by BN29 Oct 2012

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.

    When AAMC spat out my diploma certicate 20 minutes after I loaded my RPL submission online (over 140 pages of application supporting documents), I realised this is just a money grab by the training organisations and is supported by the MFAA. The whole process was a joke. there was no way a "trainer" would have been able to check the veracity of my submission in 20 minutes.

    Comments by power Grab are unnecessary and if power grab would like to approach us to understand the capabilities of our electronic assessments process and capabilities of our very experienced Assessors, I am very sure we would receive an apology from him/her. I fiercely protect the companies brand and the integrity of all its employees and now challenge you to come forward and understand what and how technology has altered the landscape of even the training industry. It is also very difficult to verify these allegations due to Power Grabs failure to disclose his/her identity. One could only assume that Power Grab was an experienced loan writer who presented all supporting RPL documentation to be assessed and that our assessors are keeping up to date with assessments.
