Frequently Asked Questions

What course do I need to complete to start working in the real estate industry?

For new entrants wanting to start working in real estate in Sydney or New South Wales, a Certificate of Registration is required from NSW Fair Trading before you can start work as an Assistant Agent. This will allow you to work in real estate sales, property management, stock and station or strata management, but you must be employed and supervised by the Licensee in Charge of an agency (Class 1 Agent).

What is the difference between a Certificate of Registration and a Class 1 or 2 Real Estate Agent Licence?

  • The Certificate of Registration is the entry level registration needed before you can work as an Assistant Agent in Sydney or NSW under the supervision of the Licensee in Charge of an agency (who needs to hold a Class 1 Licence).

The maximum term of the Certificate of Registration is 4 years.  Within this 4 year period, a Certificate of Registration holder is required to complete the CPP41419 Certificate IV in Real Estate Practice qualification and apply for a Class 2 Real Estate Agent Licence (if they want to remain in the industry).

A Certificate of Registration holder must have a minimum of 12 months experience working as an Assistant Agent before they can progress to a Class 2 Licence.

  • A Class 2 Real Estate Agent Licence will allow you to act as a real estate agent (either as a selling agent and/or a buyer’s agent), and otherwise perform all the functions and activities of a real estate agent in sales or property management – including but not limited to negotiating with clients and vendors, collecting rent, deposits, bond payments and fees related to a lease, licence or contract etc..

But a Class 2 Licence holder cannot open or manage a trust account, or act as the Licensee in Charge of an agency.

  • A Class 1 Real Estate Agent Licence allows you to carry out the same authorised activities as a Class 2 licence holder, PLUS act as a licensee in charge, work for yourself as an independent agent, and open and authorise trust account transactions.

The Class 1 Licence is the highest real estate licence issued by NSW Fair Trading.   You need to complete a CPP51122 – Diploma of Property (Agency Management) and  hold a Class 2 Licence for at least 2 years before you can apply for the Class 1 Licence.

How long does it take to complete a course?

The great thing about doing your real estate course with Validum Institute is that you are able to do the course at your pace, in your own time, to suit your schedule.

  • Assistant Agent (Certificate of Registration) course – you have 6 months starting from the day we send you your login details.
  • CPP41419 Certificate IV in Real Estate Practice (Class 2 Agent) – you have 12 months starting from the day we send you your login details. * CPP41419 Certificate IV in Real Estate Practice (NSW Class 2 Agent) coming soon.

You must submit all your Assessments 14 days before your Course Expiry Date to allow for marking and any resubmissions.

Unless prior arrangements have been made with Validum, we will not accept any assessments submitted after 14 days prior to your Course Expiry Date.

Our courses are self-paced, which means that it may not necessarily take you that long to complete your course.  The length of time it takes you to complete your course depends on various factors, such as your experience and the amount of time you have available for self-paced study.

The Units of Competency (Units) in our current courses are from the CPP41419 Certificate IV in Real Estate Practice qualification.

What do I do after I complete my course?

After you complete real estate courses Sydney and receive your Statement of Attainment, you can apply to NSW Fair Trading for your Certificate of Registration or licence to enable you to commence work.

CLICK HERE for detailed information on how to apply for your Certificate of Registration or Licence with NSW Fair Trading.

What can I do with a Certificate of Registration?

The Certificate of Registration will allow you to work in NSW as an Assistant Agent in real estate sales or property management, stock and station or strata management.  As an Assistant Agent you must be employed by a licence holder and supervised by a licensee in charge.

A Certificate of Registration is issued by NSW Fair Trading and is issued for a four-year term and is not renewable. Within the four-year period Certificate of Registration holders must complete the CPP41419 Certificate IV in Real Estate Practice qualification and progress to a Class 2 licence.

What is Continuing Professional Development (CPD)?

What a professional set up. The training facilitator Stephen Mc Cann twas terrific . He taught us well and was patient as he showed the correct path. The money... he saved me just from his information and correcting my ignorance through actual sales stories saved me more than we paid for the course. We worked until finished demonstrating commitment to following through. The classes were not pressured and everyone was very accommodating. If you want a realestate course or other program , you can trust this mob. They are the real deal and the trainers are quality. We look forward to further training as we improve our property management skills .Thank you . Gary Hopes. CEO 888inc Group .read more

I recently completed the Certificate of Registration with Validum to be a Real Estate Assistant. I could not speak more highly of my experience. The student... portal was extremely easy to use. Information provided was easy to understand. Completing the multiple choice questions was a breeze and where necessary on the short answers, I was able to correct them with guidance. I was able to get a hold of a teacher every time I called and the admin staff were also friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend Validum to anyone looking to do a real estate course. Since my great experience, I have now enrolled into the Cert IV Real Estate and cant wait to get started. Validum is brilliant.read more

Validum did a good job with this course. Detailed Learner Notes with each Unit, plus the encouragement and feedback from the tutors, makes the course pretty... much foolproof. Online courses are so convenient - anyone can fit it into their schedule.read more

To anyone looking to earn their Real Estate License or Sales Registration Certificate I definitely recommend Validum Institute. It was recommended to me after... I’d already completed a REIQ course and I found Validum better. Very thorough course, easy to follow and I enjoyed doing both the sales and Full License course. Price is very competitive and the Assessors & Administration staff were always available & quick to reply to any questions. You’ll be very happy to study with Validum. 5 stars.read more
