SPRING SPECIAL - SAVE up to $650 on the cost of becoming a Licensed Agent - OFFER ENDS 30TH SEPTEMBER!

In order to ensure that our industry maintains the highest level of professional standards, it is now a requirement of New South Wales Fair Trading that all Certificate of Registration holders transition to a Class 2 Licence holder within a 4 year period by completing the CPP41419 – Certificate IV in Real Estate Practice.

 

To ensure that this study is relevant to your position and enhances your workplace performance, our team at Think Real Estate have designed a Licence Course specifically tailored for Salespeople and another for Property Managers.

 

Whilst you can start this course at anytime, you will need to have 12 months industry experience and fully complete the qualification before you can apply to NSW Fair Trading and become a Class 2 Licence holder.

 

As part of your enrolment, you can choose whether to complete your Real Estate Licence Course with or without Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). If you choose to complete the course without RPL you will be required to complete all course units.

 

If you are an experienced Agent and would like to be given the opportunity to demonstrate your industry skill and knowledge and can provide documentation to support this, you should choose to complete the course with Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).

 

Following receipt of your evidence, you will undergo a competency conversation with an Assessor over the phone. This will enable our team to identify your existing competencies and deliver a training program specifically tailored to your needs. This ensures that WE ONLY TEACH YOU WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW, NOT WHAT YOU ALREADY DO!

 

We understand the difficulty of combining work and study and offer the most flexible methods of study in the business including workshops, online learning or even a combination of both.

 

Please note that payment plans are available and designed to make paying for your course a little easier!

 

EVEN BETTER! If you are aged between 45-70 years, we have access to Government Funding that could reduce the cost of this course by 50%. CALL NOW TO FIND OUT HOW!

 

The minimum expected time for completion is approximately 3 months and the maximum course completion time allowed from enrolment is 18 months. (Note course completion times may vary depending on many factors such as workshop tutorial attendance, the amount of time set aside for self-paced study or your current level of knowledge and skills and the amount of RPL granted). Please see the Participant Handbook for further details.

Is my knowledge, skill and Real Estate Industry experience taken into account?

The last thing we want to teach you is what you already know, we simply want to fill in the gaps. Via the Recognition of Prior Learning process (RPL) we are able to formally recognised your industry experience.

By documenting your skills and knowledge, and providing a portfolio of evidence you may be able to potentially minimise the time, level of assessment and costs involved in achieving your Real Estate qualification.

Once your competencies have been formally recognised by an Assessor, we will tailor make your course content based on the result of your RPL.

Click here for more information on the RPL process.

How long does the Real Estate Licence Course take?

There is no simple answer to this question, as it will largely depend on how much real estate experience you have and what recognition of prior learning you can gain based on that experience.
