Training and assessment
Course assessment is competency based. Competency-based assessment is largely activity-based and practical. However, competence also implies that an individual demonstrates an understanding of the knowledge that is the basis of the practical task being carried out.
There are a combination of assessment activities and tasks requiring written responses. Assessment tasks also contain scenarios that require you to demonstrate you can transfer knowledge into workplace situations.
Completed assignments are uploaded onto the website for marking – there is a 2MB upload limit - or you can email your assignment to us.
Assessment is conducted within approximately 48 hours of submission.
Recognition of prior learning
You may be eligible for recognition of prior learning (RPL). RPL is the formal recognition that your current knowledge and skills meet the requirements of a given unit of competency. It does not matter how you achieved your current level of knowledge and competence – formal training, on-the-job training, self study, work experience, life experience. What does matter is that you are able to provide evidence that your knowledge and competence meet the requirements of a particular unit of competency (competency standard). When you have provided this evidence and it has been accepted as proving your knowledge and skill in a particular area, you will be given credit for a specific competency without having to engage in further study. For further information, please review the RPL application form located in main menu.
Legislative and licensing requirements
The Act defines an on-site residential property manager as a person (whether or not the person carries on any other business) who, for reward (whether monetary or otherwise):
a) carries on business as an agent for giving possession of residential premises under a lease, licence or other contract or
b) carries on business as an agent for collecting bonds, deposits, rents, fees or other charges in connection with any such lease, licence or other contract.
An on-site residential property manager’s licence is subject to the condition that the licensee must not carry on business as an on-site residential property manager in respect of premises unless:
a) the licensee’s principal place of residence is situated at those premises and
b) the licensee owns, or has an interest prescribed by the regulations in, that principal place of residence.
This condition prevents a person from being an on-site residential property manager for more than one residential complex. To do that, a person must hold a real estate agent’s licence.
All applicants for a personal licence must satisfy the Commissioner for Fair Trading that he/she is:
- at least 18 years of age
- a fit and proper person to hold a licence. Any person in partnership with a licensee in a property agency must also be a fit and proper person
- has the qualifications required for the licence
- is not a disqualified person
- has paid the relevant contribution to the Property Services Compensation Fund.
The cost of applying for a Licence with the Office of Fair Trading is $493.00 (as of July 2014).
