Real Estate Training FAQs

How are students supported to complete their course?

We offer personalised one-on-one student support sessions which are included in your course fees. Students can schedule a call back during office hours, or submit the question in writing by completing the Student Support Form – Able to be accessed here.

Do you offer custom private tutoring?

We sure do! Our private tutoring is designed for time-poor professionals or small groups who are wanting to complete their course quickly. To find out more contact our friendly team on 1300 697 347 or email training@reiq.com.au (fees apply).

What equipment do I need to undertake the course?

You will need:


  • A computer to access online learning materials and undertake online assessments.
  • Internet access for research, submitting online assessment items, and email for communication purposes and tutor assistance.
  • A Unique Student Identifier (USI) that can be obtained at www.usi.gov.au

What experience do the course trainers have?

Our trainers and assessors have at least 15 years' experience in the real estate industry and are selected for their expertise and their ability to convey their skills and knowledge to students. The REIQ prides itself on providing up-to-date information, quality materials and comprehensive support to students undertaking their study with us. All REIQ training and assessment is developed by industry trainers in consultation with REIQ members and specialists in the subject area. All materials are regularly updated to ensure that REIQ’s training is meeting the needs of an ever-changing real estate profession.

What happens after I complete the course?

Depending on your chosen course, the REIQ will issue you a Statement of Attainment at the successful completion of the program. If the program is accredited and meets the licence or registration requirement, the Statement of Attainment can be provided to the Office of Fair Trading as part of the application process to apply for the relevant licensing to enter the real estate industry.

No degree required!

Unlike other professions, you don’t need to study for three years plus at University to get started. And with a price tag starting at $900, it’s a lot more affordable than Uni too.

One course = many opportunities

Once you have your qualifications (either registration or licence), there are a variety of career paths to explore including sales agent, property manager, corporate support, principal or business owner and auctioneer plus many more.

As an online course I found that if I needed support (by phone) it was an easy matter of booking a spot. The staff were all approachable and helpful. The booklets are easy to follow. The course requires 100% pass mark so it means going back to the drawing board for every mistake no matter how small. Allow time for this, as marking is not necessarily immediate. The multiple choice questions were straight forward. The practice questions required the filling out of contracts online, access to forms through realworks, and the uploading of files. The more competent one is with a computer, the easier that will be. Any glitches I personally had were sorted without drama so on that basis I would recommend this Certificate IV course which covers both sales and property management. I also now get one year free Registration to REIQ so that's an added bonus too.

Pleasantly surprised by the accessibility and helpfulness of the REIQ team. The course was more extensive and demanding than expected, but the materials were clear and easy to follow. I am highly satisfied with the support and would recommend the REIQ.
