Traineeships are structured training programs that allow new entrants and existing staff in the profession to undertake a combination of work and study in order to gain the skills and knowledge required to have a successful career.  Real estate traineeships are 24 months in duration and require the employer and trainee to sign a training contract through an Australian Apprenticeship Centre.


The REIQ offers a choice of Certificate Level IV traineeships in five streams - sales, property management, licensing, agency support and commercial and industrial.  The mandatory competencies required for registration with Fair Trading are available as part of the Certificate IV traineeships provided by the REIQ (national training provider code: 5420).  So in other words, new employees can gain the educational requirement for registration.
