Licence Information

Currently each state and territory has their own requirements to be able to work in the real estate industry. Some states and territories mutually recognise all or some of the qualifications. For example, if you hold a QLD Registration Certificate, you can apply for mutual recognition in NSW. To find out more, please visit the Office of Fair Trading websites for the particular state or territory.

More information can be found here, via Licence Recognition.

Yes. There are two options depending on when you gained your original Registration Certificate.

Option 1:

If you hold a current registration certificate from the current training package (CPP40307) you will qualify for the Upgrade to Full Agents Licence course. This information can be found on your original Statement of Attainment or from the training provider you completed your certificate course with. Usually, if you gained your registration certificate AFTER 2009, you will have completed the course content under the CPP40307 training package.

Option 2:

If you hold a current registration certificate from the old training package (PRDRE), usually completed BEFORE 2009, and wish to gain your full licence, you may not qualify for the “Upgrade” course. This information can be found on your original Statement of Attainment or from the training provider you completed your certificate course with. If this is the case, the quickest, most cost effective option will be to complete the Licensee/Principal Agents Licence course. The Office of Fair Trading QLD will not accept your registration certificate statement of attainment (SOA) and upgrade SOA from two different training packages.

A Registration Certificate allows you to work in real estate under a fully licensed agent or agency. It is a requirement of law to hold a Registration Certificate if you are working in an agency performing duties of a Salesperson, Property Manager, Assistant or even in some cases Administration.

An Agent’s Licence (Licensee/Principal) is required if you are wanting to own an agency, manage an agency or work for yourself.

Course Information

Registration Certificate / Agents Representative

The Registration Certificate (QLD & NSW) or Agent Representative Course (VIC) is required by law to work in the real estate industry under a fully licensed agent or agency. It is the minimum requirement and usually considered the entry level qualification.

This certificate will allow you to work as a Salesperson, Property Manager or even in an assistant/administrative role in an established agency.


Upgrade from Registration Certificate / Agents Representative to Full Licence

The Upgrade from Certificate to Licence course is for those who hold the units from the CPP40307 package for their Registration Certificate (QLD & NSW) or Agents Representative Course (VIC).

This course is generally for people currently working in the industry who want to to own or manage a real estate agency.

As long as you hold the relevant units for your Registration Certificate (QLD & NSW) or Agents Representative Course (VIC) then the upgrade course covers the remaining subjects required to qualify for the full licence.


Full Licence Course

The Licensee/Principal Agents course is what you require by law to own or manage your own Real Estate agency or work for yourself without the need to be working with an established agency.

This licence will allow you to work in sales, property management or as a resident letting agent and covers up to 24 units of competency from the CPP40307 package depending on each state’s requirements.

There are no pre-requisites for this course however in Victoria you need to register as an Agents Representative with Victoria Consumer Affairs for 12 months before they will grant you a Full Licence.
