Stages of Training and Certification
Like most training processes, becoming certified as a property professional follows a simple route through several levels of expertise. You will then have the opportunity to specialise in one or more chosen fields. ACOP offers the following training opportunities:
Statement of Attainment – Certificate of Registration
This is the minimum qualification required to work with a licensed real estate agency. ACOP runs short workshops so you can obtain this statement. You may then work in sales, office administration or property management in both commercial and residential environments.
ACOP offers further education and training for those wishing to become registered professionals. You can obtain licenses in the following Industry Sectors
- Real Estate
- Strata Management
- Business Broking
- Stock and Station
- On-Site Residential Property Management
- Buyers agents
Becoming licensed will give you a greater scope of practice and increased credibility with clients. With more qualifications, you will be employable in a wider range of locations and situations, giving you greater flexibility and choice. You can work more independently and you may one day consider running your own agency.
Recognition of Prior Learning
At ACOP we Recognise Prior Learning (RPL). This means we take your industry knowledge and experience into account when assessing your training needs. This may reduce the duration and study requirements of your training course. Our training also meets the Government Smart and Skilled requirements and you may be eligible for Government Funding to cover costs.
