Real Estate Traineeships



If you have a new staff member (someone that has been employed with you for LESS than 3 months) the Federal Government will subsidise the cost of them obtaining their Class 2 Licence by completing CPP41419 – Certificate IV in Real Estate Practice.


Given that it is now mandatory for all Certificate of Registration holders to become Class 2 Licence holders, within a maximum of 4 years, this new incentive is a no brainer and all new staff should be encouraged to apply for this funding through Think Real Estate.


Who is eligible?


  • To be eligible you must be employed for LESS THAN 3 MONTHS within the Agency.
  • You must be enrolled in or have completed the Certificate of Registration.
  • You must be an Australian Citizen, Permanent Resident or NZ Citizen who has been in Australia for 6 plus months.

  • The Licence Course can be completed online, via workshops or a combination of both. All students have a minimum completion time of 12 months and a maximum completion time of 24 months.


How does the Funding work?

  • Once your Trainee is approved, you will claim a $3500.00 payment from the Government.
  • This payment will be sent in 2 instalments $1750.00 at the 6 month point of the Traineeship and an additional $1750.00 at the 12 month point of the Traineeship.
  • Think Real Estate will invoice for these payments to cover the training and administration costs once they have been received by your office.
