Recent Student Testimonials

"The volume of content that is required to pass the Post Graduate Diploma in Financial Planning programme is daunting. Paul Rabenowitz has been invaluable in breaking this material down into relatable, bite-sized chunks. His notes and templates are easy to follow and his classes are fun and engaging. I truly appreciate the time he took to guide me when I needed to be put back on the right track and to answer all my silly questions. Furthermore, his additional review sessions and mock exams gave me the confidence I needed to face the exams.

 I would have been lost without Paul. I attribute my success to him and recommend anyone embarking on this journey to take Paul along with you!"

"The first time Paul Rabenowitz pitched up to class wearing a superhero cape, I thought to myself: “that is some big shoes to fill and a big responsibility to take.” But after a year of attending classes, review sessions and mock exams I can say Paul truly is a Superhero - Trainer. I knew nothing of the industry and was a complete blank page when it came to financial planning. Paul’s passion for the industry and training stirred an excitement for what was to come.

He knows every student by name and challenges your thinking and reasoning about all subjects by asking questions and making you wonder, leaving you wanting to learn more.  Paul’s study material was very well put together, he makes boring and difficult theory interesting and understandable. He provides enough fun but challenging examples to practice that enables you to master calculations. His notes and mock exams were the only thing I needed for the exams.

After I started off knowing nothing, with the help of Paul and Lightbulb Learning and Training I was able to pass all four subjects in my first year.  I want to thank Paul, because without him I wouldn’t have the courage to attempt this and would never have been able to obtain the knowledge and skills I needed to pass this degree with a distinction.

I highly recommend doing your Post Grad in Financial Planning with the help of Paul and Lightbulb Learning and Training."
