    Yes, probably explains why i have been getting poor test scores back on their question and answer tests! Like 40%, whereas a pass for this unit lies at 60%!!

    Oh right, yes it is quite tough to get into. So I assume they only want good results.

    I wish you the best of luck with that since it will be a good certificate to have.

    i get a certificate, and hopefully learn something about personal finance along the way. I will post the link for you hold on...

    Here is the link. You can do the course without paying the $50, but you will need to pay it if you want to get the certificate. Also much of the grades are based on (peer assessed) spreadsheets, so you have to be pretty good at doing them, if you want to get a good grade i think>?
