Under the Property and Stock Agents Act 2002 (the Act), individual holders of a licence (class 1 or 2 agents) and certificate of registration (assistant agents) are subject to a condition that the holder must comply with continuing professional development (CPD) requirements. CPD is aimed at ensuring licence and certificate holders continually update their skills and are aware of their legislative requirements and responsibilities.
Licence and certificate holders must complete their CPD obligations annually with the CPD year commencing on 23 March each year.
It is mandatory that you complete a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program every year in order to renew your authority to practice. Courses offered by ACOP include Real Estate Sales, Property Management, Stock & Station, Business Broking, Strata Management and Commercial & Retail Sales & Leasing.

As per NSW Fair Trading’s CPD Guidelines, all licence and certificate of registration holders within NSW are required to complete Continuing Professional Development (CPD) each year to renew their licence or certificate. This is regardless of the number of licenses or certificates of registration you may have.
ACOP’s courses are developed by and delivered by current industry professionals and solicitors. This means that students are able to benefit from the analysis of real cases and scenarios and receive the most up to date knowledge of legislation and industry best practices.
All courses offered by ACOP provide an opportunity to network with other agents and agencies and to share ideas within our best practice framework.
At ACOP – all we do is training – and we are very, very good at it.
