Registration Certificate Course


To start any career in real estate either as a salesperson or a property manager, you need to be registered with the Queensland Office of Fair Trading as a real estate salesperson. Our Registration Certificate course provides you with the educational qualifications that the Office of Fair Trading requires you to hold before it will issue you with a Registration Certificate.

This course may be combined and undertaken concurrently with the Resident Letting Agent course.

The Registration Certificate is the entry level certification you need before you can start work in the real estate industry – either in a sales, property management or an agency administration role.  With a Registration Certificate, you will be able to commence work in a real estate agency under the supervision of a real estate principal.

After you successfully complete your Registration Certificate 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 Registration Certificate.

There are 4 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 6 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)
