Real Estate Agents Licence
Do you want to progress to the next level in real estate?
Maybe you want to open your own real estate office and manage a team.
This course is recognised by NSW Fair Trading as the qualification requirement for the real estate agents licence in NSW.
Are there any specific entry requirements?
You must have your Certificate of Registration, and hold at least a NSW School Certificate (Yr 10) or equivalent. We also strongly suggest that anyone attempting the licence either currently works in the real estate industry or has had some previous experience in the industry. You must have access to a real estate office in order to complete your assessments. If you have worked in real estate, or a real estate related business you may also be eligible to receive Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). To find out if you are eligible contact RETS Head-office on 1300 850 980 . Advanced standing (Credit Transfer) may be issued to students who can show relevant and valid academic transcripts from other RTOs. There is no cost for credit transfers.
