Here’s what others have to say
PM Job Ready Training Course.Being new to the industry, completing the course has given me confidence and knowledge that was missing from the Registration Training.All trainers presenting were a wealth of knowledge, due to having worked in the industry for many years.The training course is not only for new people to the industry. This is very beneficial to Property Managers that have been doing the job for many years also.The training was interesting, due to how it is presented and how the training course has been written.I recommend for anyone in Property Management, take PM Job Ready Training Course.Sharon

It was an honour to be part of the inaugural REIQ Property Manager Job Ready Program. The program was very insightful and interactive. Presentations were interesting, good slides and real-life anecdotes kept us all engaged. A real eye-opener for us all! I found the workshop refreshing and motivating – there were many elements of my work that can be improved upon to make work life that little bit easier.Laura, Selinda and Connie were all very knowledgeable and engaging trainers and covered a range of topics which appealed to everyone and are vital in the industry. I think everyone is going to take away some good action plans and I think it would be a good idea to refresh on this in a year or 2 time.Thank you also to Jeff for organising an amazing event.

Malcom Riley is an incredible trainer and REIQ is very lucky to have such an experienced and approachable trainer. As a trainer myself - nationally and internationally I know first had what it takes to able to work an entire room, keep learners engaged and achieve good learning outcomes. Malcolm is very knowledgeable, approachable and really guides learners through every step of the way . Thank you, I have learnt so much . Amazing !

Rachael Wilschefski has been an amazing tutor!! So helpful and encouraging and a great source of knowledge. I'm so thankful I have been able to work with her on my course.
22:38 09 Jun 22
Great course design and online module tools, useful student support especially the private training when you needed. Credit to Rachael for all the support and assistance during the learning period. You are a legend.

Completed My Real Estate Licence with REIQ in 2021. Great Experience. The team at REIQ were really supportive of students challenges and were very professional and informative in how they responded to students during the assessment tasks. Many thanks. Would highly recommend if you are seeking your sales persons license or your full license to only use REIQ.
02:57 20 Feb 22
I would highly recommend attending the in-person courses. Connie McKee, one of the REIQ trainers, presented sessions on two modules from Registration course yesterday and she presented really well. Connie was very knowledgeable, engaging and patient.
23:46 09 Feb 22
All go the REIQ staff members that I communicated with were all helpful and motivating! Wouldn’t have done my training through any other institution.
07:17 28 Jan 22
The best trainer in support sessions was Mr. Malcolm.
13:32 30 Dec 21
The course is quite comprehensive and easy to follow. Help was available when asked for and the REIQ staff were great. Just a couple of issues though. Many of the links didn't work and they showed page expired. A number of references were made to outdated legislation. I think some answers provided were correct but I was advised that the sources were wrong. In legal terms precedents can be set by other avenues not just the course notes, legislation and the REIQ. In some cases the information wasn't provided in the course notes.Generally though quite happy with how the course progressed. Thank you.

04:27 02 Jul 21
Today I completed my course and am just waiting on my Statement of Attainment.REIQ has been extremely easy and straight forward to work with during my studies.I previously was enrolled at NREL and there was absolutely no support, no contact, I was even marked competent on questions I responded asking for help with.However, at REIQ, there's a lot of hand holding (if that's what you need, or you can go it alone if you'd prefer that). I attended the two classes, I had Malcom Riley and Jason Bedwell, respectively. Both were able to bring their immense experience and knowledge and provide not only assistance with the course, but very useful advice from each of their careers in the industry.Malcom really did help to get me past the finish line, so thank you Malcom.A very special mention to Linda Lang, who provided regular assistance at our scheduled support sessions. She is incredibly helpful and patient, was always kind and is probably the biggest reason that I got through the course on time (before the due date as the training package has changed and the one I've been studying is being phased out). Thank you very much Linda.Everyone I have encountered at REIQ is really kind and helpful, passionate about everything they do and the real estate industry as a whole. Definitely eager to get fresh blood educated and ready to enter the industry. I absolutely would recommend them and I will be coming back if I decide to pursue a full licence with the new training package.Jesse

Jodie was an amazing help throughout the training. We had a few technical issues and I knew that I could call and get it sorted alongside her. She was always supportive and no task was ever a bother for her. Thanks again Jodie !!

In February I decided to take steps to buy management rights to a unit complex. As I have not studied for some time I chose REIQ to do my RLA course. Initially I didn’t engage the help through student support but it came to a point I needed some assistance. Selina Randall and Connie McKee were wonderful help. I personally feel they went over and beyond to help me complete the course and enable me to follow through with final settlement of the new business in just a few weeks Thank you so very much ladies. You were both amazing
06:35 18 Jun 21
I contacted REIQ, as I wanted to upgrade my real estate licence to a full licence. I have now completed the necessary upgrade and I just wanted to thank all the staff and trainers who were my guides during this time. Particular mention to Rachael Wilschefski who did everything she could to help me and was a joy to talk to, Trudi Fleet was a fantastic support to me and a big thank you to the assessing team. If anyone is considering using REIQ to get their licence or upgrade, I highly recommend using REIQ. Once again, thank you. Helen Knight

Just done two days interactive training with Melissa Sullivan. Sensational! Such a great presenter and electric delivery of material. Quick paced and hands-on!Very glad to have been in this class!!! Awesome
07:01 26 Jun 18
Proud to be a member of such a prestigious organisation. Thank You for the support 🏡
07:28 07 Mar 18
Had Melissa Sullivan conducting the sales registration course for the past two days I have to say I think this woman is inspiring she kept the class focused and engaged throughout the two days. I dont normally complete surveys but felt that I wanted to share that this lady has inspired me to give sales ago and I never thought i would say that as i have been a PM and honestly never thought I could see myself as a sales agent... Thanks Mel for such a great two days
