Frequently Asked Questions

What is the process and time frame on getting your Licence or Certificate?

The course time frame depends on what Licence or Certificate you are undertaking.  You will be given the Learning Resources for your course prior to commencement and you should familiarise yourself with these.  You can choose to attend class or complete in your own time, or a combination of both study options.   Upon completion you will be issued a Statement of Attainment within a week. This allows you to now make application to the Office of Fair Trading Qld who in turn issue all Licences or Certificates in Qld

Our course has been designed for people who have no experience at all in Real Estate.  It is very student friendly and our trainers are there to help you successfully complete your assessments in class (it’s not Rocket science).  You also have the option of completing your assessments in your own time.

I’m new to Real Estate, do I need the Licence or the Certificate?
