CPP41419 Certificate IV Course in Real Estate Practice

IMPORTANT MESSAGE: Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Compliance Arrangements

UPDATE: 13/04/2020

We are finding some of the software-based conference solutions to be inappropriate for competency-based training and have now decided to resume face to face delivery.

The Department of Education, Skills and Employment have advised that classes should continue as usual, unless the Department of Health or Chief Medical Officer advises otherwise.

To prevent the risk of infection of the Coronavirus (COVID - 19) - Industry Training Consultants have reacted to the practise of social distancing, by making adjustments to the classroom to create more space between people and their desks.

Industry Training Consultants will work with the venue conference centres to increase the cleaning of the classroom, toilets, common areas, door handles and equipment.

We advise that any student who is unwell, or who is required to self-isolate should not attend these courses.

Any course you choose to undertake, should be online or by correspondence.

Looking to enhance your qualifications and knowledge within your current role as an assistant real estate agent. Looking to progress to the qualification and obtain a class 2 real estate agent's licence.

This course is based on the nationally endorsed CPP Property Services Training Package units of competence for the real estate industry sector, and is for people/learners who want to acquire the skills needed to sell, market, lease and manage real estate/property within a property agency at a class 2 level.

You will also learn the fundamental concepts relating to property, risk management, appraising property including marketing concepts and requirements. These skills will be applicable across a range of property sectors - residential, commercial and industrial.

Your application to us will be assessed using the following selection criteria:
  • held a certificate of registration as an assistant real estate agent for at least 12 months (with or without a restriction condition),
Upon successful completion of this course an application to NSW Fair Trading for a class 2 real estate agent's licence is granted once you have
  • satisfactorily completed the class 2 work experience requirements during a 12 month period, and
  • satisfactorily completed Certificate IV in Real Estate Practice.

A person must satisfactorily complete a range of work experience tasks before being eligible to apply for a licence under the Property and Stock Agents Act 2002. This logbook must be used to keep track of the tasks as they are completed. Once complete, the logbook forms an acceptable record of achievement of the identified tasks.

NOTE: The class 2 work experience requirements means the completion of experience to the satisfaction of the Secretary of:

  • at least 9 tasks listed in Part 1 of Schedule 1, and

Once an application has been assessed, a decision is made as to whether you need to undertake a Language, Literacy and Numeracy assessment.

Skills Checkpoint for Older Workers Program

To fill a gap in the services currently available to older Australians, the Australian Government funded a national rollout of the Skills Checkpoint for Older Workers Program (the Skills Checkpoint Program).

The Skills Checkpoint Program is based on a model that was piloted by the then Department of Education and Training from 2015 until 2016.

Eligible individuals are those aged 45 to 70, an Australian citizen or permanent resident, employed and at risk of entering the income support system, or recently unemployed (within three months) and not registered for assistance through an Australian Government employment services program.

The Skills Checkpoint Program is directly linked to the Department of Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business SKILLS AND TRAINING INCENTIVE (the Incentive).

The Incentive is available from 1 January 2019 to 30 June 2022 for up to 3,600 participants per year.

The Incentive will provide eligible participants with up to $2,200 (GST inclusive) to fund suitable training (accredited or non-accredited). The government contribution must be matched by either the participant or their employer.

To be eligible for the Incentive, individuals must have completed a Skills Checkpoint assessment that identified training linked to their current job (e.g. upgrading skills), a future job opportunity, or an industry, occupation or skill in demand.

You can find out more information about the Skills Checkpoint Program, including how to apply, through the providers listed on this PAGE
