Payment & Refunds

The easiest way to secure a seat in our courses is via our online enrolment system. Simply choose your desired Location and Course via our Quick Booking Calendar on our Home Page, or alternatively you can view all courses.

There are three payment options:

  1. Credit Card: VISA/Mastercard
  2. EFT: If you choose this option when enrolling, you will be provided with the account details of Real Estate Academy Australia. You will need to transfer or deposit the course fee in order to complete your enrolment. Please note, until the funds are received, your seat cannot be confirmed. Please allow 48 hours for EFT payments.
  3. Paypal

For refund information please see the REAA Student Handbook

We offer course credits for units of competency that you have previously completed that are in the course so you do not need to repeat the unit of competency. We do not offer RPL for working experience though.

All course payments are upfront, upon enrolment. When you go through the enrolment process on the website you will be able to pay with either VISA, Mastercard or PayPal.

Course Information

Yes. Real Estate Academy Australia is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO No. 32426) delivering nationally accredited courses in Queensland real estate certificates and licensing.

Before you get started, you will need to know your Unique Student Identifier or USI. The USI is a unique number issued by the Australian government and allocated to you to keep track of all your nationally recognised training activities. It is a requirement that we collect this information during registration so your courses with REAA can be added to your training record.

Creating a USI is free. It creates a secure online record of your nationally recognised training that you can access anytime and anywhere, and it’s yours for life.

If you don’t have a USI, or have forgotten your USI, please click here to register or recover it. To create your USI you will need one form of ID from the following; Driver’s Licence, Medicare Card, Australian Passport, Visa (with Non-Australian Passport) for international students, Birth Certificate (Australian) *please note a Birth Certificate extract is not sufficient, Certificate Of Registration By Descent, Citizenship Certificate, ImmiCard. You will not be able to commence your training until you have provided your USI.

There are no pre-requisites for completing the courses however each state has its own requirements for applying through them afterwards e.g.- being over the age of 18 and being a fit and proper person. We encourage students to ensure their eligibility with their states government prior to enrolling.

While you are completing the course, your work will be graded by the assessors depending on which unit of competency they are currently grading e.g. – if you submit a unit on a Monday night and the assessors are grading that unit of competency on the Tuesday then your will be graded. However, if you submit your assessment on a Monday night and the assessors graded that unit previously that day, your assessment will be graded the next time they are grading that particular unit.  

Once you have completed the entire course and activated your grading (as per the instructions in your course), all of your assessments will be graded within 7 business days. Alternatively, you can purchase priority grading to speed up this process. 

If you submit an assessment that is deemed ‘Not Yet Competent’ you will be able to resubmit your assessment, at no extra cost.
