Sales & Property Management Certificate


How to obtain a Real Estate Salesperson's Registration Certificate

In order to work as a Property Manager or a Salesperson, you need to complete the Real Estate Salesperson's Registration Certificate Course. There is no differentiation between the qualification needed in Queensland to become a Property Manager or work as a Salesperson.

You must complete the course through a Registered Training Organization like Complete Property Training before you can apply to the Office of Fair Trading Queensland for your Certificate.

It is also important to note that holders of a Real Estate Certificate must work for a Licensee or Principal of a Real Estate business. You cannot work independently unless you hold a Full Agent's Licence, meaning you cannot run your own business if you only hold the Certificate.

Upon the successful completion of your course we will issue you with a Statement of Attainment which needs to be submitted to the Office of Fair Trading Queensland, along with a Form 3-1. This Form can be downloaded from the OFT website.

It is comprehensive?

The Sales and Property Management Certificate is the entry level course that we offer here at Complete Property Training, and provides you the minimum required to obtain a Real Estate Certificate through the Office of Fair Trading Queensland. It's the first step on the way to establishing a successful real estate business. One small step for you, one big step for your career!

What does the Certificate allow you to do?

The Queensland Office of Fair Trading outlines everything that this Real Estate Certificate enables you to perform. It includes the following tasks:

  • Showing property to potential buyers
  • Inspect real estate that has been listed for sale or lease, or open up a property yourself for inspection
  • Advertise real estate for sale or lease
  • Buy, sell, rent and exchange land, business or houses
  • Manage a place of business (under licensee supervision)
Essentially, it gives you everything you need to sell real estate or act as a Property Manager. There are certain things you can't do, like conduct an auction or manage a trust account. There are further specific licenses that must be obtained before you can make a move into this part of the real estate career path. However, there is a significant amount that this Real Estate Certificate in Queensland enables you to do.

How long does it take?

While it does not cover the full spectrum of Real Estate qualifications that you can earn, the Salesperson's Course is the minimum Licence requirement in real estate training. Your learning begins upon enrolment when you will be sent all the Learning Resource material, which is a valuable tool to help you undertake your assessment, particularly if you are new to the Industry. We recommend you familiarise yourself with these Resources prior to course commencement.   The face to face classroom time for this course is 3 days and class time is 9am-4pm each day.  Your Trainer will lead you in assessment items and you will also be required to undertake some assessment away from class.  Experienced students (those who have previously or are currently working in the real estate industry) will often complete the assessments in the allocated course time, however all students are able to complete their assessment outside of the allocated course time, or a combination of the 2 as we have flexible delivery options.   Courses are run monthly- start dates are listed on the relevant pages on this website.

However, the application itself can take a little longer. You need to pass several checks, and the processing time with the Queensland Government can be between four and six weeks. Factor this in if you're looking for a fast career turnaround!

What are the checks I need?

The Real Estate Certificate itself is only one part of how to become a real Estate Agent - the application process for the Licence is another. You'll have to lodge formal identification, be over the age of 18 years, undergo a criminal history check and disclose any past discrepancies that could jeopardise your application. These sorts of checks make the Real Estate Industry a safe place to work, and hold its reputation high - yet another reason why this Real Estate Certificate in Queensland has proven popular. Remember the fees when you apply as well - $334.30 for one year, or $568.10 for three years.
