How to become registered

The Property Occupations Act 2014 requires all people undertaking the functions of a salesperson or property manager in Queensland have a registration certificate.  To obtain a Registration Certificate:

  • Complete the Registration Course of seven units of competencies and obtain a statement of attainment from the REIQ (national training provider code: 5420); and
  • Complete and submit your Registration Certificate application (a New registration application Form 3-1) to the Office of Fair Trading.


You do not have to be employed in the real estate industry in order to undertake the REIQ course.  You can enrol and complete your training, then apply for your registration certificate and be job-ready before applying for work.  To be eligible for a Registration Certificate, you must:

  • Be 18 years or over
  • Be a suitable person as defined under the Property Occupations Act 2014.  People affected by bankruptcy or criminal convictions may not be eligible. Click HERE for more information.
  • Have completed the required training units.

Units of competency in the Registration Course:

CPPDSM4080A - Work in the real estate industry
CPPDSM4009B - Interpret legislation to complete agency work
CPPDSM4012A - List property for sale
CPPDSM4008A - Identify legal and ethical requirements of property sales to complete agency work
CPPDSM4010A - Lease property
CPPDSM4022A - Sell and finalise the sale of property by private treaty
CPPDSM4015B - Minimise agency and consumer risk

Study options:

  • Study online (web based)
  • Study at home, in your own time by distance education (Electronic delivery or hard copy)
  • Attend a four day block course in any region in Queensland
  • Evening classes are available in Brisbane and the Gold Coast (eight evenings over four weeks, Mondays and Tuesdays 6pm - 9pm) 
  • All units can also be studied separately at individual unit prices

Students have six months from the date of enrolment to complete the course, find out more about flexible delivery options HERE.

Assessment, credits and Recognition of Prior Learning

  • Students are assessed using open-book assessments completed in the student's own time after attendance at the course or study by distance education
  • Successful completion of the competencies completed in the Registration Course will result in seven credits against the full Real Estate Agent's Licence qualification
  • If you have current experience or knowledge in this area, you may like to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning  (RPL)

Please note:
The units the Office of Fair Trading has stipulated for registration provide salespeople a good basis of valuable knowledge to commence their careers in the industry.  However, these units do not provide property managers a comparative level of knowledge about property management legislation and practice.  For this reason, the REIQ strongly recommends all students who intend to enter the property management field study an additional four units of competency, offered as the Property Management Block three day course. The Property Management Block is run on a regular basis throughout the REIQ's training centres, and is also available by distance education.  Please click HERE for more information.
