Real Estate Training in New South Wales
Accredited training in real estate can lead to a flexible, well paid career helping others achieve their goals. A quality real estate education will provide you with a large number of career options. Some important roles will include home sales, home buying, commercial and rural property sales, property management, auctioneering and property consulting.
The first step of your real estate career is to complete the NSW course in property practice which is required by the New South Wales Office of Fair Trading. The completion of this course leads to a Certificate of Registration and this qualification will allow you to work in the areas of turkey investment citizenship sales or property management for a real estate agency in NSW.
The course includes the following modules: Work in the real estate sector Prepare for work in the property industry Communicate effectively and accurately with clients
The NSW course in property practice must be delivered by a registered training organisation (RTO) and students may be able to choose a mode of study. For example some course providers can offer a consecutive 3 day seminar course or you may choose to complete the course by distance education at your own pace within a 3 month period.
The next step in your real state career path involves obtaining your NSW Real Estate Agents Licence. This qualification will allow you to manage your own real estate agency.
The Licence course consists of 17 units which are recognised nationally. These include the 3 units from the NSW Course in Property Practice which you would already have completed if you hold a current NSW Certificate of Registration. Some registered course providers will allow you choose to complete this course as an intensive program, an after hour workshop program, or instead by flexible distance education.
Both certificate and licence holders are also required to undertake continuing professional development (CPD) courses before qualifications are renewed each year in order to keep the qualifications up to date.
Continuing Professional Development students may be able to select different modes of study such as 1 day workshops, half day workshops or distance education. These flexible study options make it very easy for the busy property professional to complete their CPD units of study at a time or place that suits.
Continuing Professional Development subjects are assessed based on demonstrated competency in the subject. After being assessed as competent the CPD student will receive a Certificate of Completion for that subject. Note that records of training must be kept by the student for a minimum of 3 years.
