Who should attend
This course is suitable for
- individuals who have completed at least a certificate of registration course and want to commit to a career as a buyers' agent.
- current buyers' agents who want to advance their knowledge and career.
Whilst you can work as a Buyers' Agent with just the Certificate of Registration, you will be looked on more favourably by employers and buyers if you have attained a Buyers' Agent licence - it can be an important differentiator for you. Indeed, many buyers' agencies will only employ you if you have this licence, and buyers may well discriminate in favour of a licence-holder.
Prior to attending this course, you must have a Statement of Attainment showing that you have completed the four Units of Competency of a Certificate of Registration course
Assessment activities are provided on a per unit basis. Students should expect to spend 1-3 hours out of class in order to complete each assessment. This time is provided as an indication only, as it will vary from student to student depending on skills and knowledge.
Throughout the duration of the course, and after completion of the course, REINSW expert trainers are available to provide support to students should they require assistance with any part of their learning.
The assessment marking process takes four weeks from the date an assessment is received by REINSW. This timeframe is made up of two weeks marking time plus two weeks for administrative processing. In most instances, results are released inside of this timeframe. Students are welcome to contact REINSW Training after three weeks to verbally gain their assessment result.
Recognition for Prior Learning
REINSW offers Recognition for Prior Learning (RPL). RPL requires students to undertake a series of assessments for a qualification or units of competency. These are aligned to an individual’s previous learning and are deemed equivalent to the learning outcomes of the components of the qualification or unit(s) of competency, being obtained through this process.
RPL is a complex and rigorous assessment method. REINSW recommends this assessment method be investigated as an option for individuals who are currently working in the real estate industry as a buyers' agent or hold current qualifications or units of competency relating to the real estate industry. REINSW requires individuals who are producing evidence for this assessment method, to provide current evidence. Under REINSW's RPL policy, current evidence must be within 12 months and all evidence supplied must meet current industry standards.
For information on RPL please email firstname.lastname@example.org
