Train the Right Way

Why choose the REIV over a budget provider?
At the REIV we believe in quality training and make it our mission to ensure we are giving our students the tools and knowledge to enter the real estate industry ready to make a real difference.

Our students enjoy full and accessible trainer support at no extra cost for the entirety of their course, through both twice-weekly live classes, and with individual support where you need it. Many of the budget providers charge extra for all trainer contact and grading of assessments, those costs quickly add up and those budget courses suddenly become far less competitive.

Why do I need trainer support?
Being a real estate agent is no simple job. Our industry deals with a multitude of legislative requirements and compliance standards that make thorough and up-to-date training imperative. Our trainers are experts in real estate, and our courses are always up to date to ensure that you are given the support you need to understand everything that will be required of you when you enter the industry.

Employers want people that can come into their business and make a positive impact from the start, and by training with the REIV you can ensure that you have been given the best tools to do so.

What’s different between your online learning, and other providers?
The REIV is the peak real estate body for Victoria, which means we are at the forefront of all legislative and regulatory change in the state. The REIV supports the entire real sector with up-to-date training, guidance and support. Our online course is reflective of this, providing a blend of self-paced learning with the most up-to-date information, and guided live learning with an expert trainer to ensure your training is progressing in the right way.

We don’t cut corners, and we don’t compromise on your training.
