I recently completed my Certificate IV in Real Estate Practice - Full License and I couldn't be more satisfied with the experience. One of the standout features was the lightning-fast assessment reviews, which allowed me to progress efficiently. The course content was top-notch, offering a wealth of valuable resources for students. The material was well-structured, making it easy to follow and absorb. Our facilitator, Kellie Blanch, was exceptional, weaving real-life experiences into the lessons as insightful examples. The user-friendly student platform made navigating the course a breeze. Overall, the high quality of this course made it a truly enriching and rewarding journey.

REIQ is really good, specially I come across the coach Kellie Blanch. I had issue for uploading all the pdf documents of my relearning and videos, she uploaded all the works and replied my email with patience and efficiency. I want to say big thanks to the coach Kellie. Also the study system of REIQ is really easy to use and resources in the website is very useful and wide range.

The course facilitator, Rob Honeycombe was great. He used plenty of real-life experiences and real-world examples to help ground the course in reality. The course work was a little challenging at times but I managed to work through it all fine - support is always available for those who need it and I found Jeff Irvine from REIQ Student Support to be both helpful and encouraging. You are given 6 months to complete the assessments however, I managed to complete the course work in a little over 6 weeks. This was while working so would likely be shorter for those who are studying the course full time. In summary, I had a great experience all 'round and I can't wait to get started in my new real estate career! Thanks, REIQ!
