new qualifications & teach-out notice

This notice is for all students enrolled – or who plan to enrol – in REIQ’s real estate courses.

For those enrolled in one of the following courses from the CPP40307 training package:

  • Registration;
  • Licence Upgrade;
  • Full Licence;
  • Certificate IV in Property Services;
  • Another real estate course or individual units from this package.

We have been notified by the National VET Regulator, Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) that the current real estate qualification has been replaced with a new qualification.

As of September 2021, the current qualification will be superseded and replaced by a new updated training package – CPP41419 Certificate IV in Real Estate Practice.

This change will apply across Australia.

The table below lists the current and superseded qualifications as well as the codes and names of the new qualifications –

Superseded & Updated Training Qualification

As a result of these changes, the REIQ must teach-out (phase out) the current and superseded qualifications and transition to the new qualifications.


  • The Office of Fair Trading has released the updated requirements for the new qualifications. The REIQ is currently working on compiling the resources for the qualifications ready to deliver the new units early-mid 2021. In the meantime, we will continue to teach-out the superseded qualifications.
  • If you are enrolled (or are thinking of enrolling) in a course from the current qualification, all of your assessments must be fully submitted by 1 August 2021, to allow time for certificates and qualifications to be issued.
  • Requests to extend enrolment end dates after this time cannot be granted.
  • Units from the current qualifications cannot be credit transferred to the new package, as the current and new versions of units are not equivalent.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us.
