Duration

Part 1

Individuals have a total of 26 weeks (6 months) to complete the learning and assessment requirements for the WA Sales Representative Program (Sales Stream) from their initial activation date.

Part 2

Individuals have a further 26 weeks (6 months) to complete the learning and assessment requirements for the WA Real Estate and Business Agents Licence Program from their initial activation date.

Individuals therefore have a total of 52 weeks (12 months) to complete the CPP50307 Diploma of Property Services (Agency Management).

Individuals may attempt the quizzes and/or submit their written assignments at any time if they believe they are adequately prepared. Therefore, if students complete the subjects in Part 1 in less than 26 weeks, the remaining time may be used as additional time to complete the subjects in Part 2. If students require the full 26 weeks to complete Part 1, then they will have 26 weeks to complete Part 2.

The amount of training for this course may be up to 20 hours per week. The amount of training is the hours an individual can expect to spend to complete their course work and assessments.

In addition to the amount of training, individuals who are new to industry or vocational training may need up to 5 hours per week known as unsupervised hours. These additional hours are for study skills or further research. For example, an individual not working in industry would need more time to review industry websites that are usually introduced in workplace compliance training.

Individuals in job roles related to the real estate industry may be able to complete the course requirements in a shorter timeframe or less hours per week.

If an individual applies for extensions beyond the 52 week completion timeframe or is granted special consideration, the maximum period of time to complete this qualification is two years from the qualification activation date.

Additional study-related fees apply to formal extensions and re-enrolments. Please refer to the Vocational Education Fees schedule for Real Estate found here.

Please also refer to our Vocational Education and Training (VET) Enrolment Terms and Conditions here or our Student Handbook here for important information on:
