Victorian Estate Agents Licence

CPP40307 Certificate IV in Property Services (Real Estate)

Estate Agents Licence

The Australian College of Professionals conducts a full estate agents licence program for people to undertake an in-depth study of the entire Victorian real estate process. This is a practical-based course and provides course participants with opportunities to acquire and practice new skills in all areas relating to real estate.

The modules that are compulsory for the estate agents licence are:

  • Agents Representative
  • Trust Accounting
  • Property Management
  • Sales for Real Estate
  • Financial Management
  • Staff Management

The courses listed here for the estate agents licence are based on the premise that you have not already completed the Agents Representative module. You MUST complete the Agents Representative module first. The remaining five courses can be completed in any order.

You may be assessed for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) or Recognition of Current Competence (RCC) for one or more modules. This means that you will not need to attend training for that module. Assessment is taken on an individual basis and determination of RPL or RCC is based on evidence of your previous experience and learning.

The successful completion of this full licence training program will mean that the person gains the award of CPP40307 – Certificate IV in Property Services (Real Estate).

All other details regarding student services, training processes and duration of training program are detailed in the Participant Handbook which can be downloaded from the ACOP website.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

If you believe that you have the skills, knowledge and competence in any of the module areas, then you can discuss this with an Assessor at the College who can provide you with an Evidence Guide that gives you the details of the types of evidence that you need to provide for the Units of Competency for which you intend to apply for RPL.

Further state information about the Victorian Estate Agent Licence can be found on the Consumer Affairs Victoria Website.
