Here is some information that you may find useful when considering Real Estate as a career.

Licencing

The Real Estate Industry is regulated by the Office of Fair Trading QLD (OFT) and therefore; there are requirements for all employees (operating under a licensee) to complete prior to employment. All Sales People and Property Managers are required to hold a ‘Salesperson Certificate’ that is issued by the OFT.

In order to become accredited with the OFT, you need to complete a ‘Statement of Attainment’ which can be completed with either of these two main training providers on the Sunshine Coast.

At the completion of your course and required assessments to demonstrate your learning, you will be provided with a ‘Statement of Attainment’ which then supports your application for a ‘Salesperson Certificate’ with the OFT.

Real Estate Institute of QLD (REIQ)

The REIQ is the industry’s governing body and therefore is one of our preferred training providers. They are based locally in Maroochydore on Dalton Drive and run training courses a couple of times each month. The course can be completed either remotely or in a classroom atmosphere (recommended).

Timelines

We are often asked, ‘how long does it take’ to get into the industry? The licensing element is one of the most important elements to consider as essentially anyone legally employed within the industry requires the certification. The approximate timeline for the completion of the course and return of the certificate from the OFT is approx 8 Weeks.
