CPD Compulsory Topics for Class 1 and Class 2 Licence Holders


The new CPD year will start on 1 July 2024 and end on 30 June 2025, and continue after that in line with the financial year.

All Class 1 and class 2 Agents in Real Estate or Strata Management or Stock and Station will be required to complete 5 hours of compulsory face-to-face or 10 hours of purely online training which includes all compulsory topics applicable to the agent's licence category and additional elective training to make up the 10 hours.

If you hold a class 1 or class 2 licence for both real estate and strata, or real estate and stock and station, you will be required to undertake:

  • 5 hours of compulsory CPD for strata and 5 hours compulsory CPD for real estate (compulsory CPD hours need only be completed once, and completion will count towards your compulsory hours for both licence categories),

For example, an agent completes the compulsory CPD topic about supervisor’s obligations. The topic is applicable to both licence categories – strata and real estate. The agent only needs to complete the topic once and it is counted towards both licence categories (one hour for real estate and one hour for strata).


All resource guides and assessment practicums are provided to students in hard copy (including electronically if undertaking the training by correspondence). The resource guide is used to develop a sound knowledge base of each compulsory topic.

From 1 July 2024 and 30 June 2025 we will deliver the following compulsory topics:

Licence Category - Real Estate 

  1. New Supervision Guidelines (1 hour)
  2. Introduction to work health and safety obligations in sales and property management (2 hours)
  3. New workplace employment law changes (approved by the Commissioner's Office) (1 hour)
  4. Introduction to strata for salespeople and property managers (1 hour)

* Residential Salespeople will be required to complete five hours of training in these compulsory topics listed above. In addition, their 2024-25 CPD requirements will include an online module relating to price representations and underquoting. The online module has been developed between NSW Fair Trading and TAFE NSW. 

*The above topics are also relevant to a real estate agent licence holder carrying out commercial agent activity.


Class 1 and class 2 licence holders who successfully complete their CPD training face to face 5hrs or 10hrs of CPD online/by correspondence, will be issued with a written notice within 10 business days (including an electronic copy) demonstrating completion of their training including the following information:
