TESTIMONIALS

Great company to complete online learning with.
Education had a flexible approach to my programme and helped me with all my queries. I know I have taken a few years to complete my DFP but it was worth the time since I had no cut off time. I am planning in doing my ADFP soon. I would recommend "Mentor Education" to anyone that is interested.

Nancy Gansalvez

You can actually talk to a Teacher!
I completed my Diploma of Financial Planning RG 146 with Mentor last year long distance while still working, they were very helpful and there when ever I needed help. You can actually talk to a Teacher or email them. They are polite and always check by email to make sure you were happy with their help, and to email back if not. Great 110% service. I had to use "another company " for another course because the Boss paid for it and honesty there was 0 service, no teachers at all and rude/money hungry people.
