Based on 536 reviews
Validum institute and the people working there are without a shadow of a doubt the best ever training agency i have ever studied in. The course is very well structured, easy to follow and understand. The online platform makes everything accessible at your own time and pace. There are emails with opportunities, advice, interviews being sent on a regular basis. One thing that i would like to add is the work ethic is of a very high standard. Even the director Wei-Loong Chen , gets down in the trenches and calls students and helps them by explaining things they do not understand and he even correcting assignments. If you want to learn Real Estate, and you want to learn how to do it properly this is the course for you. I guarantee 100% that you will not only get the best course in QLD, but also the best support.read more

Having done the extensive research on online course offers, I decided to study at Validum Institute. I strongly recommend Validum Institute for the method of offerings (not just readings but there’re PPTs and videos), very well outlined course materials and various types of assessments to prepare for the real world. I asked LOTS of questions to the trainer and Trina was always so prompt in replying and very helpful. Even one of the directors, Wei-Loong was very helpful and encouraging. What a great mentor!read more

Just completed the full real estate license course ONLINE through Validum this year.The way in which you are assessed is fair, and actively encourages learning - as opposed to simply assessing, which I think is more important. The information presented to is engaging and well set out. I found the Validum learning portal to be super easy to navigate - same cant be said for most other online learning portals.Special thank you to the Validum director, Wei-Loong, who was always available to speak over the phone and offer assistance when needed. I’ve spoken to a few others who are very happy with their learning experience with Validum and the same can definitely be said for myself. Highly recommend.read more

I cannot speak highly enough of the experience. Being able to set my own pace while still having access to the Validum team to lean on has been a Godsend while I continued to work full time. The content is comprehensive and clear with great practical reinforcement. Responsiveness of the Validum team is excellent. I have already signed up for the Cert 4 with them after recently completing the Full Real Estate Course.read more

I haven't done much on line training so I was sceptical about doing the real estate licence course away from a classroom. I didn't need to worry the whole experience was stress free and when I needed help the staff and trainers were fantastic. I was faced with some technical difficulties on the IT side of things and Validum were all over it and helped me through the process.read more
