Real Estate Agent Licence Course


If you wish 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 Licence course provides you with the educational qualifications you 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 (subject to any applicable industry awards and any pre-existing employment arrangements you may have with the 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 in the course. You will need this Statement of Attainment before you can apply to the Office of Fair Trading for your Real Estate Agent Licence.

There are 6 clustered modules of learning and 7 items of assessment that you will need to attempt and complete in this course. 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.

Additional support and coaching is available by contacting us.  (Please note that additional fees may apply)
