    stud..
    I am deep country WA and find the lack of information or help from K is very frustrating. I just found this forum while I was googling govt bonds, and now feel like there is some light at the end of the tunnel. The guys here share info freely. I have got help already. What city based educators fail to understand is the added costs when you have to travel to attend training and stay somewhere etc, etc.
    I feel a lot better now i have found this forum....

    Cheers

    Maybe a solution

    Thanks Moses I agree that living regionally costs extra in travel and phone calls to chase up info and get study support.
    I may have found a solution though. Investment Banking Institute just opened in Geelong and offer a "distance learning" course. They said I get unlimited 1300 and net study support and no extra "re-examination" fees for resubmitting work.
    They are Melbourne based does anyone have any experience with them???

    Distance Ed

    Hi

    Do you have any ability to find a mentor, a local practice etc
    That would be a big help plus this site I guess, only new.
    In Melb, lucky already working in a practice, it still does my head in regularily
