Hundreds of brokers benefit from funding boost

A total of 350 Australian brokers are set to enhance their skills thanks to Federal funding secured by NIBA College.

The funding, from the National Workforce Development Fund, will subsidise the cost of 21 Diploma of Insurance Broking workshops across the country between September 2013 and April 2014.

It is the second time the NWDF has subsidised the workshops, after almost 200 brokers attended similar workshops earlier this year.

Linda Evans, NIBA’s Professional Development Executive, says: “Securing a second round of funding is great news for brokers across Australia and is a real good news story for the industry.

“The subsidised workshops represent the fastest way for brokers to earn their qualifications, which is great for businesses and also for consumers, as there are more highly-educated brokers in the workforce to offer the best advice.”

At this point in time all of the workshops are full and there is a waiting list. However, to be kept up to date with opportunities, please
