I've recently completed Cert IV in Real Estate Practice with REIQ and couldn't be happier with the quality of this course. The best part was the SUPPORT. Trainers are always there to help whenever I had a doubt or a questions throughout the whole duration of the course. They respond super quickly to emails, sometimes even on a Saturday morning! Delivery was exceptional, all learning materials were up to date, well explained and easy to understand. They provide you with lots of .pdf forms to practice with during the completion of each of the 8 assessments, and you can keep them for reference. Each assessments has great balance between practical and theory aspects. I gained so much knowledge from this course and I feel ready to work in the industry. Thank you so much to all the REIQ team!

The REIQ registration course was quite comprehensive for a new start in the Queensland industry. The content was adequately detailed and the quiz tests challenging. The appendices in pdf format were particularly useful to be saved for future reference. Over all, quite a good overview for starting out in real estate in queensland. Joel Raftopoulos 12 October 2020

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.
