Great experience doing my Cert IV in Mortgage Broking. Great downloadable PDFs with material & questions - then another with fillable for questions, Great Quiz process, then brilliant last assessment with a "real life" experienced person that I learned a lot of information that was practical and not even on the questions but tested my overall learning not just the process but the practical - great experience and reasonably priced and was recommended by another mortgage broker who had used them and had the same experience. I also found a thought process of - lets teach and test - but you can prove your knowledge of the subject matter without making it complicated - I found it quite easy to know what was being asked in the question (usually the section question was directly below the material being covered so easy to know what they wanted and respond quickly with the correct answer that aided learning -than worry that they were trying to "trick" you or make you take more time than needed just to try to see who was ranked highest/lowest or try to fail a certain percentage. I think their courses would suit people well who were ESL (English as a 2nd Language) or ADHD or had other learning difficulties because of the fantastic format and quick focused learning and ease of getting through the material. I've done my fair share of study too - so I've seen how those assessing can make the learning experience painful by not making it engaging or practical enough. - Financial Planning Diploma through Kaplan, Chartered Accountants Course, Cert IV in Training through Wollongong Uni Uni Western Sydney/Macquarie Uni for my BComm Accounting degree.

I've just completed my Diploma of Finance and Mortgage Broking Management. I can't complain anything during my journey. Phil was very helpful and knowledgeable, not only did he guide me through the questions but also helped me come up with more ideas for this industry in practice. And I love the design for the certificate as well. Highly recommended!

The team at ISM were brilliant. They were very skilled in the delivery of the content and very open to questions and assisting understanding. They were prompt with the final marking and issuance of the Diploma. I would have no hesitation in recommending ISM for any participant.


At ISM we not only train industry leaders, but we also work with them every day. Our corporate and strategy team have first hand, relevant and up to date experience in the field. Our partners engage us regularly with industry consultation, planning and governance. That’s our professional difference.

What a difference this program has made to my business. It came at the perfect time for my business. I now understand the direction I want my business to go in and I understand a lot more about myself as an individual. I would highly recommend this course to all mortgage brokers- especially those who run their own business.

The program is delivered over the course of several months, affording students the ability to implement and apply their new skills on the job for maximum effect.

Joining the Advanced Diploma of Leadership and Management has been a life-changing decision. I have found the course and most notably Gerard and all of the speakers to be inspiring and educational. They say you are the sum of the 5 people you spend the most time around and during the workshop weeks at ISM I feel this theory working its magic for those few days a quarter.   I feel inspired & excited to have the framework and space to discuss ideas and learn from academics, successful business people and CEO’s as well as my peers. The skills I have developed through the course are already allowing me to create greater outcomes for my career, for my team and our clients.
