“I completed my real estate licence with ACOP through correspondence and the entire training package was absolutely fantastic. All of the course materials are comprehensive and the assessment materials are well thought out to encourage students to further develop their knowledge and skill. All of the questions that I had were answered promptly and in detail. The ACOP staff go above and beyond what is required to facilitate students and I would like to thank the team for their professionalism and dedication to teaching”
