Education Requirements To Work In Real Estate

If you want to start a career in real estate or are considering upskilling to become a licensed real estate agent, the education requirements changed substantially from 21 October 2020.

The new education requirements reflect significant changes to standards of competency for estate agents and agents’ representatives. These requirements draw on a new training package for the real estate industry that was developed following a national review. This page provides a summary overview of the education pathways available.

The Regulations also provide exemptions for people who have completed previously prescribed educational requirements. Estate agents and agents’ representatives currently working in the real estate industry can continue to do so, as long as they satisfy the exemptions.
