Real Estate Traineeships


If so, you or one of your new team members may qualify for Government funding via the Real Estate Traineeship Program.


The Australian Government offers a number of initiatives to encourage employers to assist their employees to enter into a training program to improve their skills and to gain a formal qualification. Think Real Estate's Traineeship Pathway for CPP40307 Certificate IV in Property Services (Real Estate) is covered by the program.


Conducted over a period of up to 24 months, the Traineeship Program is a great way for new employees to increase their workplace skill, knowledge and productivity by combining a structured training program with on-the-job experience and have the cost funded by the Commonwealth Government.


A win-win for both employer and employee! (Download the Funding Information for Employers Brochure for full funding details below).


Think Real Estate's flexible study options which are developed in consultation with both employer and employee, make completing the Traineeship Program so easy. Study via workshop, correspondence or online learning.


The minimum expected time for completion is approximately 12 months and the maximum course completion time allowed from enrolment is 24 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 the amount of RPL granted). Please see the Participant Handbook for further details.
