REINSW Certificate of Registration Course
The REINSW Certificate of Registration Course is the first step to launching your career in real estate.
All new entrants to the real estate industry, who intend on performing any of the functions of a real estate agent, must hold a Certificate of Registration issued by NSW Fair Trading.
When applying for a Certificate of Registration, NSW Fair Trading requires a statement of attainment from a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) stating that the applicant has successfully completed the relevant entry certification course.
REINSW Education & Training is an RTO and the REINSW Certificate of Registration Course sets the industry standard, giving you the best possible start to your real estate career.
