“MFAA Preferred Training Provider”
Nothing counts like experience. The National Finance Institute has selected a team of trainers
who have significant experience in the finance industry.
With an average of ten years in mortgage lending, our broking industry trainers have experienced many types of borrowers, loan products and economic cycles. They know what it takes to be a successful mortgage professional.
We have trainers who have been residential mortgage brokers and commercial
mortgage brokers. Our bookkeeping and accounting trainers have also had
substantial experience and are CPA qualified.
Our trainers are able to impart their real world knowledge, providing relevant information that is delivered in a motivating and enlightening manner.
NFI has developed six Training Focus Areas:
- Industry experienced trainers: The National Finance Institute will only employ trainers with a minimum of 5 years experience in the relevant subject area.

distance education modes to provide the opportunity to work training into other ‘life commitments’.
