To work within the NSW property industry as an agent, you need to have either a certificate of registration or a licence for the work you will be doing. Real Estate Explained offers training in the following areas. For further information on regulatory requirements, head to our NSW Fair Trading information page.

Certificate of Registration

Real Estate License


Every holder of a Certificate of Registration must follow a career pathway to transition into a licensed real estate agent as the COR has a lifespan of only 4 years from the date of issue. It then lapses and cannot be renewed in under 12 months, effectively making the COR holder ineligible to continue working in the industry in the usual capacity of an associate agent.

In order to apply for your Class 2 Agents Licence with NSW Fair Trading you must meet the following criteria:

Please note the application fee to NSW Fair Trading is not included in your course fees.

Details of how to apply for your Licence and links to do so are available on our website under the link to Fair Trading NSW.

The qualification is comprised of 18 units of competency comprising of 5 core units which make up the Certificate of Registration and 13 elective units of competency. 

Real Estate Explained can offer the electives with a Property Management focus or a Sales focus, as shown below:

Language, Literacy and Numeracy Assessment To ensure that participants have every opportunity to succeed in their chosen course we have included as part of our enrolment process a Language, Literacy and Numeracy assessment. This will be assessed prior to acceptance into any of our courses.  Students who fail to attain a sufficient standard will have their course fees refunded and referred to an appropriate service for Language, Literacy and Numeracy support. Should you have already completed this process with our RTO, such as enrolment for the Certificate of Registration, you will not need to do this again.

REFUND / TRANSFER POLICY:      On confirmation of your enrolment and prior to attending training or delivery of the resources, REAL ESTATE EXPLAINED will issue your invoice for the initial non-refundable administration fee of $500 which will be deducted from your course fee. As we cater to individual needs the course fee will vary, depending on any RPL / RCC audit.

You will be provided a quote prior to enrolment based on the following unit prices:

Delivery either by face-to-face training or distance learning – $220 per unit

Including all resources printed and delivered.

RPL / RCC audit $110 per unit

Should the audit finding prove ‘Not Yet Competent’ the $110 will be

transferred as a credit to the $220 full fee of the relevant unit(s).

Additional invoices will be issued throughout your training with each being payable prior to the module being delivered or the resources being made available, for example, the general units




under full delivery would be invoiced as $660 and paid prior to attendance.

The $500 administration fee is non-refundable. There are no refunds for cancellations less than 24 hours prior to commencement of the training. For cancellations more than 24 hours prior to the training course, an administration fee of 20% of the course fee will apply or we will transfer your enrolment to another date but no refund will apply.

Once enrolled, please refer to your student handbook for any further information regarding cancellations and refunds.
