Extensions are available at an additional cost.
The subject breakdown for this course is below:
The 3 units noted above with *, are covered in the NSW Certificate of Registration program. These units will not be provided in the material for this Licensing Program. Please refer to the Entry requirements tab for more information.
All subjects except the oral assignment (NSWLicOA) will be activated upon initial enrolment. Individuals are required to complete all other subjects prior to attempting the oral assignment. The above is a recommended study order of subjects; however, individuals have the flexibility to complete in any order, with the oral assignment as the last subject.
The amount of training for this course may be up to 15 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.
There are no entry requirements for this course. However, Kaplan Professional has structured a logical progression where individuals commence their studies with the NSW Certificate of Registration Program in order to ‘get started in the job’ and then progress to the Licence program. The NSW Certificate of Registration Program should be completed prior to the NSW Real Estate Licence Program.
Individuals are required to be aged 18 years or older to enrol in this course.
All participants are provided with equal opportunity to complete their studies with Kaplan, however some participants may not be eligible to obtain their Certificate of Registration or Licence with NSW Fair Trading. Contact NSW Fair Trading to ascertain eligibility requirements to obtain a real estate licence in NSW.
