Strata certificate of registration

Certificate of Registration Strata (NSW) - Entry Level Strata Course


Please be advised that NSW Fair Trading (NSWFT) have announced changes to the registration and licencing qualification requirements for strata agents in New South Wales.

As of March 2020, for individuals wishing to obtain their Strata Certificate of Registration, NSWFT will stop accepting the current 3 units of competency, and require all new entrants to the industry to obtain 7 units of competency (see 'How long will it take?' section for further information). You can still enrol in the current 3-unit registration course as long as you can commit to completing all assessments, and submitting all required paperwork to RETS no later than 1st of March 2020 (as you will need to apply for your registration with NSWFT BEFORE 23rd of March 2020). Students must be aware that if they do not complete the course and submit their application to NSWFT before the 23rd of March, they will not be able to obtain their registration until they have completed the additional 4 units at an addtional cost.

What do you need to do?

The Certificate of Registration - Strata is comprised of three (3) units of competency which are ASQA accredited and recognised by NSW Fair Trading. Any person looking to become a Registered manager of a strata or community scheme (this includes giving advice or information on property) must have competently completed these units. When you have successfully completed these units and received your Statement of Attainment you can submit them to the NSW Fair Trading, where they will then issue you with the Certificate of Registration (conditions apply – see for more information) NSW Fair Trading no longer issues provisional Certificates, so if you want to work in the industry you must complete your Certificate before you commence work.
