Statement of Attainment in Property Services
If you’re good with people, interested in the property market and have a head for details and figures, a career in real estate could suit you.
The Statement of Attainment includes four key areas of study including providing an insight into the communication, ethical and NSW legal considerations real estate agents need to understand. You’ll also learn to communicate with people from diverse backgrounds, solve daily agency problems and make decisions about how to interpret ethical and licensing requirements. As office work is so important in real estate, you’ll also learn the basics on real estate agency processes and procedures and study consumer and agency risk management.
If you are actively job seeking in NSW, completion of the Statement of Attainment in Property Services will give you a big head start to attaining your NSW real estate licence - the Certificate of Registration in Real Estate (Real Estate Salesperson) - as required by NSW Fair Trading.
Please note, this course is not suitable for students outside NSW, due to the legislation covered.
