Validum Real Estate Training
Based on 1015 reviews
Embarking on my real estate license training at Validum Institute, I was a bit overwhelmed initially. The best decision I made was to go into the Validum... Institute offices and talk directly with the trainers, John and Trent. Not only were they calm and patient with me, but they went out of their way to help everyone there. It was such a relief to be told that most people find one of the questions challenging. After that, I found the rest of the course flowed and I finished the course much quicker than I had expected. Thank you to everyone at Validum Training for all of the hard work you put into running an excellent training more

Priority Marking (Upon Request)


For new entrants wanting to start working in real estate in 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 requirement to work as an Assistant Agent in 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.

Class 2 Real Estate Agent Licence will allow you to act as a real estate 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.

Assessments typically consist of multiple choice questions, short answer questions, roleplay video presentations, reports and practical exercises.

What happens if I get any questions wrong?

Don’t worry – you have not failed.

When our assessors ask you to re-attempt an assessment question, all it means is that you need to fix up some issues in your answer. Think of your first attempt as a draft that our assessors have reviewed – the feedback you receive will help you improve and finalise your answer.

You are provided with unlimited re-assessment opportunities if you are assessed as Not Yet Competent.


After you complete your course 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.
