Fast track your real estate agent career. Start with our 1-day real estate assistant agent course

Updated: Aug 27



All Australian real estate agents need at least an entry-level certificate before start working in the real estate agency sector as a sales agent or a property manager. States and territories have different rules as to the course requirement and application process. In NSW, there are 3 levels of real estate agents. An agent must start from the entry-level course and work their way up to the advanced level.


NSW Real Estate Licence


Entry-level. 1-day plus Assistant Agent course.


In NSW, you must become an Assistant Agent before starting to work in a real estate agency. Once you have completed our 1-day plus Assistant Agent course, a Statement of Attainment will be issued by MRT Training (RTO41529) with which you may apply to NSW Fair Trading for a Certificate of Registration. You are then called an Assistant Agent. An Assistant Agent can work as a sales agent, property manager or in any position that requires contact with clients. However, an assistant agent may not sign an agreement with a vendor, developer, landlord or tenant.

NSW Assistant Agent course consists of 5 units of competencies as shown below. A student graduates when all the assessments are completed. No exams. These units of competencies are part of the Australian National Accredited Course CPP41419. A Statement of Attainment is issued to the student when all the assessment have been successfully completed. The student then applies to NSW Fair Trading for a Certificate of Registration in real estate. Once granted, the student is then called an Assistant Agent.
