I commenced study with them in Certificate IV in Credit Management after gaining a position as a Credit Control Officer. This was something different to what I was doing with the organisation. I was also nominated for the North West Regional Training awards where I was recognised for Achievement in Financial Services. Thank you again to the wonderful staff who supported me on my journey with the Australian College, if I am ever looking to complete another financial services course, you will be the ones who I come to. ” Kelly W
