Skills First funding expanded – you may be eligible 

The REIV has some exciting news for anyone considering a career in real estate or those wanting to further their career. Government funding, through Skills First, may now be available to you, slashing the cost of the study.

In the past, training in progressively higher qualifications has been a ‘key eligibility criteria’ to access this funding, however, from 1st January 2023 this will no longer apply.

Upskilling will no longer be an eligibility requirement for Skills First funding. This is great news, and we applaud the Government in making this move, as this allows many more individuals to get their real estate qualifications at a much lower out of pocket cost. Australian citizens, permanent residents and New Zealand citizens can now access this funding even if they hold a higher educational qualification. For example, a graduate with a bachelor’s degree can now access Skills First funding to complete the CPC41419 Certificate IV in Real Estate Practice.

This is a great opportunity for individuals who have a higher qualification to access the Certificate IV or Diploma at a significantly reduced out of pocket cost.
