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.
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.
