The scholarship is part of FAST’s sponsorship of the MFAA Equipment and Commercial Finance Education Series, which launched last year. 

The e-learning program aims to help established residential brokers diversify their offering, further develop their consultancy and credit assessment skills, and attract new brokers to commercial lending and equipment finance. 

Commenting on the scholarship program, Brendan Wright, CEO of FAST, said: “Commercial finance represents a huge growth opportunity for brokers. By enrolling in this program, these FAST brokers are taking the first important steps to tap into this opportunity and we are delighted to support them on their journey.” 

Scott Howell, broker at mobilelender.com.au, was one of the scholarship recipients and said that the scholarship has helped him break into “an area of broker [he] never thought [he could]. 

“The education series has given me the confidence to actively pursue equipment and business finance lending and I look forward to putting my learnings into practice,” he said.
