Wish school had taught you more about money?
We created a course that does.

‘Get Money Smart’ is a 6-week course taught by experienced financial professionals, and designed to make you a MONEY NINJA.

GET THE FULL COURSE OUTLINE

Umm, what’s a ‘MONEY NINJA’?!
Money Ninjas are people who…


Have the confidence & skills to make smart money decisions

Have systems and strategies to manage their money easily, automatically, and in alignment with their goals

Don’t feel overwhelmed by it all (budgeting, investing, taxes, super etc) because they understand how it all fits together

Are on the path to financial security, because they understand how money is used to create real wealth through investing

Aren’t scared of financial jargon because they are armed with enough knowledge to make sense of what’s important

Don’t get FOMO at the sound of the latest get-rich-quick-scheme, or investment opportunity because they understand the difference between a ‘fad’ and ‘investing’

Sounds good, right?
We can help you get there.

So, what does the course cover?
‘Get Money Smart’ is a complete, end-to-end course. You’ll learn all the basics: from budgeting to investing and more.


How to organise your money to enable guilt-free spending and reduce financial anxiety


How to set financial goals and achieve them

How to create a system to automatically save and budget your money

How to get tax savvy: understand personal income tax in Australia, tax deductions, and the tools and resources available to make tax-time stress free

How to start investing: what are your options? How do you invest? What should you do, and not do?

How to make the most of your superannuation: the different fund types, how it works, and what to look for in a super fund

How to avoid getting trapped by debt: what’s a credit score? How do credit cards work? What is ‘good debt’ vs ‘bad debt’?

How to use the latest tools, technologies and resources to make managing money quick & easy


This isn’t just any old course.
At SkilledSmart, we do things a bit differently. We focus on…


LEARNING BY DOING

All those courses that just teach you a bunch of technical definitions? This is not one of them. In this course, you’ll be practicing the skills yourself. Be ready to get your hands dirty!


LEARNING FROM EXPERTS

Our instructors are qualified industry professionals with years of experience in financial planning and investing. They practice what they preach.


NO SALES, NO BS

We don’t make commissions off any financial products or services. We’re here to educate, not sell you products. We teach, you learn. That’s it. No tacky sales gimmicks.

GETTING SAVVY

Gone are the days of tedious budgeting with spreadsheets. Today, there are great tools that simplify money management. We are big fans of technologies that make life easier.

KEEPING IT SIMPLE

We cut through the technical jargon to get to the stuff that really matters. We simplify the complex, and teach you just what you actually need to apply in your day-to-day life.

    5 star review  It was a wonderfully informative experience. Made me really think about money in a different way. The course was structured very well, and the tutor was fantastic. There's a lot to think about and do going forward, now that I have the foundations covered!! Do the course!

    5 star review  It was a good decision to have started the course. Although I am not Australian or citizen we don't have idea of how important the financial knowledge is in order to help me growing our money. The course gave me the opportunity to stop and look into some things that I was aware of but "never had the time" to do it. 100% recommended for whoever wants to have control over financial life.

    5 star review  I recommend this course 100%. It was interesting, dynamic, fun, current to our situation and very informative. Who would have thought that I would be interested in health insurance? not me! I learned a lot and feel much more prepared to take care of my existent debt and prepare for the future.

    5 star review  Oh my gosh best course ever! So informative, practical and relevant! I seriously wish they taught this stuff at school. I feel I am making better, smarter decisions about my finances as a result of this course, which is making me more confident in other areas of my life too. It's extremely empowering. Didn't realise how lost I was until I did this course!

  • 5 star review  I looked forward to attending these classes each week. Lessons were informative, engaging and fun - a pretty tough ask when covering topics such as insurance and superannuation! The instructors really knew their subject areas and gave me confidence in my current and future financial decision making. I cannot recommend this course more highly.

    5 star review  This course is excellent and is exactly what a lot of young people need to know about finance. This stuff ought to be taught in schools, but seeing as it isn't, I'm glad I have MoneySmart instead!
