If you are currently working in the real estate agency, and you are looking to own or manage a real estate agency, you need to hold a Real Estate Agent Licence. If you wish to sell real estate as an independent contractor without working through an established agency, you will also need to hold a Real Estate Agent Licence.
Our Real Estate Agent Licenses course for experienced agents provides you with the additional educational qualifications you may need before you can apply to the Office of Fair Trading to be licenced as a real estate agent.
Having a Real Estate Agent Licence allows you to own and manage a real estate agency, and act as principal licensee. A Real Estate Agent Licence also allows you to work as an independent contractor and contract your services to an established agency.
After you successfully complete your Real Estate Agent Licence course, Validum Institute will issue you with a Statement of Attainment for the Units of Competency you have completed. You will need this Statement of Attainment before you can apply to the Office of Fair Trading for your Real Estate Agent Licence.
It is expected that you will have a Registration Certificate, experience in a business environment, or experience in real estate or a related profession (such as finance or property development). You will already have a basic understanding and knowledge of real estate. If you can supply evidence that you have the skill and/or knowledge of the requirements for a Unit of Competency in your real estate course, Validum Institute’s RPL assessment process may be able to provide credit for that Unit of Competency, even if you have not completed our training for the Unit of Competency.
Successfully completing the RPL assessment process could reduce the time you need to spend studying and/or the number of Units of Competency you need to formally undertake to complete your course. This could, in turn, translate into a time saving for you.
The number of assessments you have to complete will depend on your RPL assessment outcome. All our assessments are open book, and feature a combination of theory and practical questions. You have 12 months from when you first start the course to complete and submit all assessments.
