What are traineeships?
Traineeships are jobs that combine work and structured training. You have to be employed to undergo a traineeship. They include paid employment under an appropriate industrial arrangement, a Training Contract that is signed by both the employer and trainee and registered with the NSW Department of Education and Community and a recognised qualification, delivered by RETS.
This training is funded by the NSW Government in partnership with the Australian Government.

The trainee may be eligible to attract government incentives, offsetting the costs of the training - RETS will put you in touch with an Australian Apprenticeship Centre to find out more. There is a one off administration cost of $478 (2013) per training year, per trainee (this $478 administration fee is non-refundable if the trainee withdraws or does not complete the traineeship).
How does it work?
Students can either complete the course via distance education or by flexible delivery. The most appropriate mode will be discussed with the employer, the student (employee) and RETS. Whichever mode is chosen, RETS guides the student through the course with a training plan, visits (dependant on traineeship mode), workbooks, assessments, record sheets, calls and e-mails. The learning will take place on-the-job as the students go about their day to day activities, with guidance from the employer and the other employees. RETS assess the students regularly using competency based assessment -that is they are competent or not yet competent at completing a task. If the student is not-yet-competent they will have the opportunity to be reassessed at a later date.
If you have an employee who may be interested in traineeships, or if you are interested in finding out more contact RETS . RETS can organise an Australian Apprenticeship Centre to visit your workplace to see if you or your employee is eligible to complete a traineeship and guide you through signing the Training Contract.

Please do not enrol and pay for this course until you have spoken to our office.
"The team at Real Estate Solutions have been nothing but supportive and encouraging throughout my journey starting from my Certificate of Registration through to my recently completed Real Estate Licence. I entered the Real Estate industry 15 months ago with limited experience and confidence. Now, not only am I confident with my work but believe I have been given the right tools to be successful. Alan Doyle and Ramona responded to all my questions promptly and offered clear explanations where necessary. The course work was easy to follow and would typically be marked within 10 days. Real Estate Training Solutions offer a user friendly and convenient self paced program. Their commitment doesn’t end at the completion of your course, they offer CPD programs with the latest information and legislation changes. I highly recommend Real Estate Training Solutions to anyone who is interested in entering the Real Estate industry. The service, study program and individual support exceeded my expectations."
