FNS50615 Diploma of Financial Planning // BLENDED DELIVERY

VERONIKA ABDULKHAKOVA Thank you to my great supervisor! Balanced sense of humour, very competent and professional.
DUSTIN ADAMS I began this course via distance education, but found my motivation hold me back from real progress. When I transferred to workshop format, I was pleasantly surprised by the efficiency of the support staff in placing me into the next available time slot. The combination of the trainers approach and the various experience of the audience completely changed my motivation helping me to complete the Diploma and open doors within the Financial Industry (RG146 compliance). I recommend this workshop approach unconditionally!
NYREE ASHTON The program was well structured. The workshops were intense, however you are able to complete most of the assessment during them. The training I have received will assist me in providing the service that is required in public practice in the future.
GIHAN ANTHONY I was thrilled with the way the staff responded to accommodate inquiries and requests to suit student needs. I could recommend any one to take a course with IIT as the content of study material is of a high standard and the feedback and support you get is of high quality.
LISA BIRD I really enjoyed the second four days of my course. The facilitator made the second part of the course interesting, and made me realise I need to stress less.
JESSICA BIRD Being job ready is important and the main reason why I was attracted to IIT’s offering because of the depth of training available (as well as flexible study options).
As a benchmark for deciding on a RG146 provider, I looked for those with training that could be recognised for university-level accreditation— IIT was one of the few that offered that.
What eventually clinched it for me was the friendly and down to earth conversations I’d had with IIT staff before and after enrolling, as service is important to me as well as product.
Having completed the DFP now, and already pre-enrolled in the ADFP with IIT, I know I have made a sound investment and would recommend them to other students who value service and quality of training as well as increased confidence in their ability to enter the financial planning industry based on sound training.
NATHAN BOSMAN Great learning environment provided by the trainer and provided great insight into the industry in both theory and practical application.
APURV BHALLA I Would recommend IIT to other friends and peers as I am very happy with the way the course was conducted and also the value I got from the knowledge and experience of the educators.
MOHAMMED BHUIYAN IIT provided me with all the necessary information and training to be able to focus in the financial service industry.
NATHAN CAIN IIT has excellent trainers with a very broad knowledge base. I am looking forward to training through IIT again soon.

NATASHA DAWSON It’s fantastic to have this option of workshop available getting through a Diploma, especially for full time workers.

BERNADETTE FRECH THE BEST ASPECTS: Prompt and practical help via email from the support team especially in clarifying some points I wasn’t sure about; flexibility with the timelines of my modules being completed; clear and concise explanations of the theory and how to apply it; able to redo or clarify certain components that were initially wrong instead of failing us outright – these aspects encouraged me to keep positive that it’s achievable to complete my diploma with hard work and the right support
DANIEL GARRETT The workshops are fantastic and especially useful for those attempting distance education as well. Recommend upgrading to the workshop to meet industry professionals and work smarter. They provide access to a network of industry professionals, an ability to bounce ideas, and learning at greater depths.

KYLIE ZAMEL-GEJUBINI Very easy to use system which enabled me to study and complete the course as my own pace.
ABBY GELLATLY The facilitator was an excellent teacher, he motivated me! I also cannot express my gratitude to Ann enough for letting me extend my course. I liked the way the questions really made you understand the DFP.
JANELLE GELICAME Role Playing was the thing I liked the best. It has given the students the opportunity to grow and think critically based on the roles that they are required to portray.
Student-Instructor Relationship was another thing I like the best. When there are things that are unfamiliar or unclear, we don’t have any fear of “holding back” in raising them. No questions are stupid and all ideas are welcome. There was, indeed, a productive interaction.

STEVEN STANBROOK The trainer delivered a very entertaining and attention focused course that you wanted to participate in.
DANDO SUKA I have gained a more thorough knowledge of financial planning and even though I am an experienced paraplanner, I filled in some gaps in my knowledge.

I would recommend to anyone to enrol in the course and even though it may be challenging, the feeling after you have completed the course is terrific.
MICHELLE TARANZA I have learned a lot from this training. Our face to face discussion was overwhelming yet challenging.

To sum up, the whole training prepares us for real life clients. Thank you, IIT!
LOUISA TOPEROSO The open and honest environment in which we could discuss any topics with our peers. The availability of the trainer during breaks and after hours to assist with questions or help on topics we needed help with. Friendly trainers and peers to work together with.
PETER TRIBOLET I had the unique pleasure of completing a Diploma of Financial Services (Financial Planning) through IIT Education via both Workshop and Distance Education. The course materials were extremely well written, easy to understand and really enlightening. Completing the assessments by Distance Education enabled me the flexibility to continue full-time work and achieve what I wanted in my studies. The way in which my studies at IIT Education commenced was through partaking in workshops for two of the modules. To say the presenter added and contributed knowledge, experience and guidance which could otherwise be learnt through distance learning is a massive understatement. The workshops were engaging, informative, educational, interesting and fun. I cannot recommend enough my support and happiness with the experience I’ve had through IIT.
FARID ZAKI Practical and relevant study material as well as Professional and approachable presenters. Breakthrough and mind-changing experience worth the challenge.

FNS50615 Diploma of Financial Planning // DISTANCE

PRASAD ACHARYA I found the course material very easy to understand and the tutors were always accessible for resolving any doubts. I would definitely recommend IIT to anyone who is looking for an enriching learning experience.
JOHN BAINI The trainer is extremely knowledgeable and this is reflected in course material that drives students towards high technical and ethical standards. It was a pleasure to complete my Diploma of Financial Planning with IIT.
DON BOURNE I set myself a time limit of 2 months to achieve the entire module and chapters within the modules. Credit must go to the staff for marking the assessments in good time so I could go onto the next module. The role plays were a little intimidating at first but once one knew what was required it was not too bad. At 64 years of age it proves anything is possible.
JENNIFER CAMPBELL When I began this course, I didn’t have high hopes of maintaining focus to study distant education, I not only did it, I did it as a full time mum, and in half my expected time. Thanks IIT, your assessors are encouraging and kind. I was nervous at having to study again and now i’m relieved and signing up for more!
EVAN CHAN The course consultant and the facilitator gave me very good advice about the course syllabus and requirements as well as what to look out for in identifying that the course is recognised by ASIC as satisfying the RG146 industry standards. This is critical especially for a non-Australian resident as I do not wish to study for something that is not recognised. The staff at IIT are also very knowledgeable, experienced and very prompt in answering my queries in relation to the coursework. My only regret is that I was not able to find the time to attend IIT’s workshops and experience more interactive training.
TAWANDA CHATORA Thank you very much for all your assistance through my job search. I have managed to get my foot in the door through a job as a Fund Administrator. I will definitely be in touch soon when I decide to start the Advanced Diploma. Thanks again.

ADITYA DAVE IIT is definitely a very good institution. People at IIT are very honest, earnest and extremely helpful as well as knowledgable. The course is very well structured by IIT and the distance education team is just fantastic. They are always ready willing and available to help.

I thank IIT for all the support they have given me because of which I am successfully able to complete the course.

DARREN DUMMETT Living far from a major city, I found the e-Learning facilities easy to use to complete the training and qualification. I would recommend IIT for people in my situation needing to update their qualifications.
ANGELICA LAI DEVERA It was indeed a great experience learning this course. I was enrolled in a blended workshop (which is face-to-face and distance education). Even if the face-to-face workshop lasted only for two weeks, I really had fun and I learned a lot. The facilitator never failed to support us in our journey to becoming a Financial Planner in any way possible. I must say that he really has a lot of experience and knowledge on the different aspects of the course. I also find it sensible and realistic when he would give us practical examples of how financial planning really works. I was so happy and thankful that I got to study in international institute of technology.
ALLAN GILLBANKS I had the ability to complete the studies in a reasonable time, and the information and expectations were clear in each chapter. I called if I needed help and the resolutions were quick and simple.

JOSHUA HANCHETT The distance education course was efficient and the support staff and role play assessor were always friendly, helpful and professional.

JOSEPH HO Staff at IIT were friendly, supportive and prompt with my queries. The interview is a great method of assessment! Would recommend to everyone.
MARCUS HOU The materials were developed well, easy to comprehend and very relevant to today’s market. The examples were helpful in clarifying the theory into practice. The assessment was well structured to test the appropriate areas of key theories. The staff are helpful and prompt at responding to queries and resolving any doubts.
ALEKSANDAR ILIC Distance Education at IIT allowed me flexibility to study at my own pace, to do my work commitments and lifestyle. They were really professional and supportive in regards to any queries I had and also on the assessment booking times, as I lived overseas in a different time zone.
KATE INGHAM This course is an excellent overview. I particularly found the insight into investment/tax/super/insurance interconnect of real value. Thanks for making it so accessible outline.

ALAN MARCHINGO I thoroughly enjoyed my studies, i appreciated how understanding your organisation and the assessors were of my situation. Everyone dealt with was professional and compassionate.
JOHANN MAREE The team at IIT were helpful and accommodating. The quality of the workbooks and ongoing support really surprised me. Make no mistake this course pushes one to do additional research and increase knowledge. The roleplay assessments really helped crystallise ideas about client facing interaction. I commend the IIT DFP to those looking for a quality program.
LJILJANA MIHAILOVIC The course prepared me to work with clients. It included all aspects of client-adviser relationship including the body language, clear and concise communication along with the tools for providing advice to bring the client in a better position. The course helped me to grasp all the tasks that an adviser has to run in the background in order to present their advice to the client in a way that they understand it and to provide advice in a compliant way i.e. do sufficient research and take into account all strategies that might be appropriate for the client’s specific situation. As I live in Serbia, there is a huge time difference. I always asked if I could book my oral exams in the afternoon (Melbourne time) so that this would be early in the morning here and not the middle of the night. The distance education team was always very understanding and they would allow me to have exams at that time. I really appreciate that.
QAMAR MIRZA I would like to thank you all team of IIT. Specially office staff and facilitator for being so helpful in all my needs and supported me in all situations during finishing my DFP and SMSF. I would definitely will recommend all family and friends and colleagues. Thank you very much.

I recommend this course to anyone who is interested in financial markets and/or education.
SUE STEYN To study part time is daunting and to do it from a different continent is even more of a challenge, especially considering a nine hour time difference.

I have received incredible support from everyone at IIT. Every interaction I had with IIT was a pleasure, from the efficiency and response of feedback on assignments to assistance with questions I had. I found the manuals comprehensive and set out in an easily understandable way. Thanks to everyone at IIT who contributed to making my student experience such a pleasurable and successful one.

MARK ANDERSEN The facilitator’s knowledge of the industry is very thorough, wise and reflects enormous experience. He is gifted at imparting this knowledge to myself and my fellow students. I would have no hesitation in recommending the IIT course and their various facilitators. This course will help me profoundly in my career direction as a Financial Planning holding C.A.R. with my dealer group.

ANTHONY CERANTONIO Great course, good balance of theory and practical examples, distance education is flexible.

MICHAEL CRAWFORD The course material was set out in a clear manner and the assessments were easily approachable. I completed this course in combination with a full time 50hr per week job. If you get focused it’s easy to complete. I spent lots of hours here and there but in the end achieved the result I was looking for. Thanks.

DEAN CUMMINS Excellent course, well taught by the trainer who made the mundane interesting!

PAUL GAFFNEY I recently had the pleasure of completing the RG 146 through the intensive hands on course run by IIT very aptly led by the Facilitator. The attention to detail and personal approach from IIT in the prior weeks to attending the course was further amplified by the Facilitator and his professional and approachable educational manner. I have completed many industry courses over my time in the financial services industry, yet the IIT RG 146 course was the first time I have been entertained, inspired, encouraged, challenged to succeed, whilst gaining exception value out of professional development. Thanks again IIT, I will be looking forward to having you add value to my staff and business again.
FRANK GRASA Great module with excellent resources provided along with a facilitator who teaches well.
BELINDA GREENE The workshop was a really comfortable and friendly environment to learn in, I was able to ask questions to an industry expert and receive industry related training techniques that are current and consistent. Workshop is a great method to learn and obtain industry qualification in a fast and timely fashion.

LILIANA HERMAN This course has given me a good understanding on how financial planning works, the knowledge needed to prepare ourselves on becoming a good financial planner and the facilitator has given a lot of support on becoming a good financial planner from his vast experience. IIT has also accommodated the need of every learner with different background and experience to create a positive and constructive training experience that is beneficial for all learners. It has been the best learning experience I have ever had.

I feel that i have grown and developed as a person in this field whilst building a new skill set in the process. Thanks IIT in particular to the facilitator for a wonderful experience and look forward to taking on more of your courses with a likely move into this growing industry.

ERIN SANDERSON I am writing to say thank you! I completed my Dip. FS in November 2009 in Melbourne with IIT. I had recently finished my bachelors degree and wanted become a financial planner. I have just been accepted into AMP’s Horizons program for new planners and I am over the moon! Competition for places in this program is fierce and as an at-home mum who has been out of the workforce for the past 6 years I feel that my success is a credit to the focused, effective education that I received from IIT. I feel that working with the facilitator in the workshop program in particular gave me the opportunity to learn more about the industry than merely the contents of the RG146 qualification. Thank you for such a great head start.
SWARN SANDHU IIT is a great institute for professionals to gain academic qualification. The institute has excellent balance of theoretical and practical aspects of the qualification.

INGRID SCHODDE The facilitator made a dry subject interesting from his ‘war stories’ that were not only entertaining but facilitated my learning – one of the best courses I have been on. The venue was terrific.
MUHAMMAD SEEDAT I attended the Diploma of Financial Services (Financial Planning) course at the International Institute of Technology for a period of 2 weeks in June 2009. I found the course to be very informative and yet at the same time easy to understand. The facilitator helped me understand the work by putting it into everyday life situations. I received incredible support from the staff at IIT in making new friends and keeping a great reference and referee in my facilitator. He also told me in life ‘never give up and give it your best, always persist, with everything and in the end you will reap the rewards for your efforts’. With the completion of the Diploma through IIT I gained favourable advantage and was selected to study my Master’s in Agribusiness Finance through Melbourne University. I would like to thank the IIT staff for all their help and providing the selection officers at the University of Melbourne with positive feedback on my behalf.
FRED SIASAT Coming from a non-financial background, I thought that the company of students was great to learn from. The workshop was so helpful to me as I was able to tap into a wealth of knowledge.
KISHORE SINGH The IIT course was very informative and educational.
PAUL STAFFORD I attended the course as a real estate agent to get a stronger understanding of the financial services profession.

Wanted to go through some sample calculations in the class that would be useful.

The training was all practical and has given me a lot of confidence moving forward to start working as a financial planner. Being able to get real world experience from James was amazing.
