  • Internet access for research, submitting online assessment items, and email for communication purposes and tutor assistance.
  • A Unique Student Identifier (USI) that can be obtained at www.usi.gov.au

What experience do the course trainers have?

Our trainers and assessors have at least 15 years' experience in the real estate industry and are selected for their expertise and their ability to convey their skills and knowledge to students. The REIQ prides itself on providing up-to-date information, quality materials and comprehensive support to students undertaking their study with us. All REIQ training and assessment is developed by industry trainers in consultation with REIQ members and specialists in the subject area. All materials are regularly updated to ensure that REIQ’s training is meeting the needs of an ever-changing real estate profession.

What happens after I complete the course?

Depending on your chosen course, the REIQ will issue you a Statement of Attainment at the successful completion of the program. If the program is accredited and meets the licence or registration requirement, the Statement of Attainment can be provided to the Office of Fair Trading as part of the application process to apply for the relevant licensing to enter the real estate industry.

No degree required!

Unlike other professions, you don’t need to study for three years plus at University to get started. And with a price tag starting at $900, it’s a lot more affordable than Uni too.

One course = many opportunities

I recently completed my Certificate IV in Real Estate Practice - Full License and I couldn't be more satisfied with the experience. One of the standout features was the lightning-fast assessment reviews, which allowed me to progress efficiently. The course content was top-notch, offering a wealth of valuable resources for students. The material was well-structured, making it easy to follow and absorb. Our facilitator, Kellie Blanch, was exceptional, weaving real-life experiences into the lessons as insightful examples. The user-friendly student platform made navigating the course a breeze. Overall, the high quality of this course made it a truly enriching and rewarding journey.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course. The resource material was well set out, well written and it was easy to refer back to the topics when doing the assessments. The Assessment questions were also well written and it was easy to refer back to the resources to find the answers. The information is relevant and will be a valuable resource to use when starting in the real Estate Industry.

The coordinators of the program made it very easy for us students to understand the dynamics of the real estate industry. With clear and concise explanations I was able to dive straight into the course without any hesitation. I recommend this course to anybody who potentially wants to expand their knowledge and work in the industry.
