Property Services Training Package CPP07
To work in the real estate industry in Victoria, individuals must successfully complete the four (4) Units of Competency required to become an Agents Representative.
An individual registered with an Agents Representative will be employed by a Victorian Estate Agent, known as the Officer in Effective Control. They will be able to perform any of the functions of that Estate Agent. The agent may be a salesperson or a property manager but cannot operate their own real estate business.
The training offered by the Australian College of Professionals is accepted by Consumer Affairs Victoria as the approved course of study for Agents Representatives.
Since 2010, the Australian College of Professionals has been conducting training courses for people to complete the Statement of Attainment required to enable students to be employed as an Agents Representative under section 16(1)(b) of the Estate Agents Act 1980.
