Description

Key things to know before enrolling in your Upgrade Courses

What is an Upgrade Course?

An upgrade course is simply studying extra Units of Competency than your previous Statement of Attainment to reach the next level of real estate qualification.  Units of Competency from any previous real estate Statement of Attainment, regardless of what training institution it was achieved, will be recognised by Validum Institute in accordance with current RTO legislation.

There are many reasons why people upgrade their real estate qualifications.

Some people like to start with their Registration Certificate and update to their full Real Estate Agent Licence once they have had time to learn the industry and confirm it is a good career choice for them.

Others like to upgrade their Queensland real estate qualification from Registration Certificate or Real Estate Agent Licence to CPP40307 Certificate IV Property Services (Real Estate) to increase their skills and stand out from their peers.

Whether you are wanting to upgrade to start your own agency or simply to increase your skills and professional development.  Validum Institute is the right training institute for you.

Did you know?

You must be already have completed as a minimum a Queensland Registration Certificate (7 units of competency) under the CPP40307 training package (after the year 2008) to undertake an upgrade course.

If you have the Units of Competency from the PRDPE training package before 2008 they are no longer accepted by the Office of Fair Trading.  You will need to either complete the Full Real Estate Agent Licence Course or apply for Recognised Prior Learning (RPL).  Please contact us and speak to one of our trainers and assessors to discuss the RPL processes with you or visit our Frequently Asked Questions page for more information on RPL.

If you are enrolling into a course now, you do not need to do anything different – work on your course with the aim to completing it as soon as you can.

Validum will update you about any changes to your course as soon as we receive further information from the OFT.  As always, we are here to provide advice and guidance to help you successfully complete your course.

If you wish to discuss these upcoming changes, please feel free to contact us on 07 3193 5270 (9 am to 5:30 pm, Monday to Friday (Brisbane time)).

What happens after I complete my Upgrade Course?
