How to obtain a Full Real Estate Agent’s License in Queensland?

The Real Estate Agent’s Licensing Course is for those wishing to own & operate a Real Estate company, undertaking management rights in which you can list and sell properties on and off site, as well as open and operate a trust account or to work as an independent contractor.
The Real Estate Licensing Course covers 19 units of competency and costs $TBC. You can choose to complete the course in class through blended study, via online studies or through private tuition (extra costs for private tuition).

There are a number of ways to obtain your Full Real Estate Agents License; you could complete the full course at once (all 19 units), you could opt to begin with the Real Estate Salesperson Course (12 units) and then upgrade at a later date (7 units).
Alternatively, some students have completed a Resident Letting Agents Course (15 units in RLA Course, for Management rights) and will then need to complete an ‘upgrade to full real estate license course’.
It is suggested that resident managers of managed apartment blocks/complexes opt for this license instead of simply an RLA license as it means they can also make sales while conducting the letting business.

Be your own Boss

By completing the Full Real Estate Agents License you are capable of owning and operating your own real estate business. Having only a Salesperson license will not qualify you to do this. By having your Full Real Estate License you will be able to hire sales staff and as the principal-agent, you make a commission of all sales from your office.

Property Training Australia (formerly Property Training QLD) has been offering Real Estate Training since 2003 and we have trained 1000’s of agents throughout Queensland.
Being a family-owned and operated business PTA has always prided itself on the quality of training it offers to all of its students. We don’t just teach you the units, we teach you how to lead the industry and really maximise your income by worker smarter not harder.

If you are completing the course online, you will receive an email that outlines how to log into your online course and begin studying. We suggest a minimum of TBC AMOUNT OF hours to complete the Full Real Estate Licensing Course. You will also be required to attend an auction for one of your assessments.

Private Tuition

Private tuition is available upon request and can really speed up the process. With one on one private tuition, it is possible to complete a course within a week.
We have trainers available from Cairns to Coolangatta and it is just a case of working out the most suitable times and location to conduct the training.
Private tuition may require you to complete more homework and familiarising with the learning material before the training begins. Direct contact with PTA trainer by appointment only, additional fees may apply. Refer to admin at PTA.


For all training options it is important to note that once you receive a statement of attainment from Property Training Australia, stating your competence, you will need to lodge this with the office of fair trading for your license.
All licenses are issued by the government NOT the training organisation. The QLD government (Office of Fair Trading) will have a licensing cost depending on how many years you want your license valid. Once you have lodged with the Office of Fair Trading it can take up to 6 weeks for them to deliver the physical license. However, if a future employer or business progression requires your license, you can prove that you have lodged and paid for the license and you are simply waiting for the physical copy from the government.

Do you offer VET-Help or Payment plans?

Property Training Australia does not operate under the umbrella of VET- HELP training.
We do however offer in house payment plans.
We require a minimum of 50% of the course fee at the time of enrolment and the remaining balance can be paid in instalments. No statement of attainment will be issued prior to the course being paid for. If it is in-class study the course must be paid in full before class begins.
For full details on payment plans email: your inquiry.

What is the process of getting my Real Estate License after completing your course?

Once you have completed your 19 units with Property Training Australia you will be issued a statement of attainment to reflect your competency in ALL units.

You will be required to lodge this paperwork with the Office of Fair Trading (QLD Government) who issue ALL licenses.
