To become a real estate agent in Australia you must acquire a Certificate of Registration (QLD in-class, QLD online, NSW) or an Agents Representative Certificate (VIC) from an accredited training organisation such as REAA. Registration courses can vary in length and content depending on the organisation delivering them but all providers must adhere to the 3-7 units of competency required by the office of fair trading. REAA courses are the fastest and most cost-effective way to acquire a certificate of registration.
To pass you must show that you understand key information about the legislative requirements etc. to work as a registered real estate agent in Queensland. To learn key sales techniques and how to be a GOOD real estate agent is different. REAA also provide a real estate sales training course that will give you the skills required to help you become a successful agent, though this is not required by law, but will be looked upon favourably by prospective employers.
Coronis Realty Network recommends REAA Courses as the number #1 choice in Real Estate Course Training.
