How Do I Become A Mortgage Broker?
Mortgage and Finance broking can be one of the most rewarding careers available in Australia. The ability to work flexible hours and earn a substantial income are some of the benefits of the industry, especially when the entry requirements to become a broker are simpler than other industries that offer similar rewards.
1. The first step in becoming a Mortgage Broker is to complete FNS40815 Certificate IV in Finance and Mortgage Broking. This course provides the basics of how to become a mortgage broker and is the required government and industry qualification.
2. Once you have completed this course you can approach lenders and broking groups.
How do I get an Australian Credit License (ACL)?
If you engage in credit activities, you will generally need to have an Australian credit licence (ACL) or become an authorised credit representative (ACR) of a licence holder. This includes anyone lending money, or any intermediary between the person lending the money and the person getting the money, which includes brokers.
If you’re just starting out in financial services, you cannot apply for an ACL with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC). The reason is that you need at least two years finance experience as an authorised rep to be eligible to apply. This means you need to apply to become a credit representative instead.
