If you hold a Real Estate Registration Certificate under the OLD training package (PRDE), you can apply for RPL. To be eligible, you have to have a current registration and be working in the real estate industry to apply for RPL.
The cost of RPL starts at $399.00. For more information, please contact TPMAA.
How do i get a refund?
TPMAA has the following policy regarding refunds of fees to students.
Face to Face courses
- There are no refunds available if a student cancels less than 24 hours prior to commencement of the course.
- If a student cancels the course less than 14 days prior to commencement of the course, TPMAA will transfer your enrolment to another course date but no refund will apply. If the student cancels the transferred course, no refund will be available.
- If a student cancels the course more than 14 days prior to the commencement of the course an administration fee of 25% of the course fee will apply.
- If a student fails to attend class and no written advice is received by the office before the course commences a fee of $100 is payable to transfer to alternative course date.
A full refund is available;
If TPMAA cancels a course due to unforeseen circumstances, students will be offered a full refund or have their course fees credited towards another course.
To secure a position, payment is required on enrolment. The enrolment cannot be processed without payment for the designated course. Fees are per course.
If the applicant is under the age of 18, refer to the applicable state legislation for Licence application age restrictions.
Can I use my Certificate or Licence in another state or territory?
Currently each state and territory has their own requirements to be able to work in the real estate industry. Some states and territories mutually recognise all or some of the qualifications. For example, if you hold a QLD Registration Certificate, you can apply for mutual recognition in NSW. To find out more, please visit the Office of Fair Trading websites for the particular state or territory.
More information can be found here, via Licence Recognition.
If I already have a Certificate, can I upgrade to a Full Agent’s Licence?
Yes. There are two options depending on when you gained your original Registration Certificate.
If you hold a current registration certificate from the current training package (CPP40307) you will qualify for the Upgrade to Full Agents Licence course. This information can be found on your original Statement of Attainment or from the training provider you completed your certificate course with. Usually, if you gained your registration certificate AFTER 2009, you will have completed the course content under the CPP40307 training package.
If you hold a current registration certificate from the old training package (PRDRE), usually completed BEFORE 2009, and wish to gain your full licence, you may not qualify for the “Upgrade” course. This information can be found on your original Statement of Attainment or from the training provider you completed your certificate course with. If this is the case, the quickest, most cost effective option will be to complete the Licensee/Principal Agents Licence course. The Office of Fair Trading QLD will not accept your registration certificate statement of attainment (SOA) and upgrade SOA from two different training packages.
What is the difference between a Registration Certificate and a Licence?
A Registration Certificate allows you to work in real estate under a fully licensed agent or agency. It is a requirement of law to hold a Registration Certificate if you are working in an agency performing duties of a Salesperson, Property Manager, Assistant or even in some cases Administration.
An Agent’s Licence (Licensee/Principal) is required if you are wanting to own an agency, manage an agency or work for yourself.
Are your courses nationally accredited and recognised?
Yes. The course components delivered by Real Estate Academy Australia (REAA) are nationally recognised. REAA is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO No. 32426) delivering nationally accredited courses in Queensland real estate certificates and licensing.
What course is the right one for me?
The TPMAA Property Management Course and The Registration Certificate course
Is the course you will be required to complete by law to work in the Queensland Real Estate Industry under a fully licensed agent or agency. This certificate will allow you to work as a salesperson or property manager. The registration will cover the 7 Units of competency required by the Office of Fair Trading. The TPMAA course combined with being in a real estate office undertaking practical training work experience assessments and training will enable you to hit the ground running as a property manager.
The Licensee / Principal Agents course
The Licensee/Principal Agents course is what you require by law to own or manage your own Real Estate agency or work for yourself without the need to be working with an established agency. This licence will allow you to work in sales, property management or as a resident letting agent. The Licensee/Principal Agents course will cover the 19 units of competency required by the Office of Fair Trading.
The Upgrade from certificate to license
The Upgrade from Certificate to Licence course is what you require by law if you wish to go from holding a current registration certificate to holding a Licensee/Principal Agents licence. This course is generally for people currently working in the industry wanting the ability to own or manage a real estate agency. To qualify for the “Upgrade” course you need to hold a registration certification from the current training package (CPP40307). If you hold a registration certificate from the older training package (PRDRE) and wish to gain your full licence, you may not qualify for the “Upgrade” course.
