What is an Upgrade Course?

An Upgrade Course is simply studying the additional Units of Competency that you need to reach the next level of real estate licensing requirements.

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

Very often, people like to start with their Registration Certificate and upgrade to their full Real Estate Agent Licence once they have had time in the real estate industry and have decided that 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 in Property Services (Real Estate) to increase their knowledge and stand out from their peers.

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

Did you know?

As a minimum to undertake an upgrade course, you must have already completed the Queensland Registration Certificate course (7 Units of Competency under the CPP40307 training package) in or after 2008.

If you have previously completed the Units of Competency from the PRDPE training package before 2008, these Units 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 or visit our Frequently Asked Questions page for more information on RPL.
