An auctioneer

An auctioneer is defined by the Property, Stock and Business Agents Act 2002 as anyone:

  • who, in the course of trade or business and at an auction (or a proposed auction), acts as an auctioneer or sells for reward (whether monetary or otherwise) any land or any livestock or  
  • who sells or offers for sale, or who attempts to sell, any land or any livestock by way of auction or  
  • who engages in any other activity that is prescribed for the purposes of this definition. 

Qualification requirements for stock and station auctioneer accreditation

The holder of a stock and station agent’s licence has approved qualifications for accreditation as an auctioneer if a registered training organisation has issued the person with a statement of attainment or a qualification demonstrating competency in both of the following units of competency:

  • CPPDSM4039A — Conduct livestock sale by auction
  • CPPDSM4037A — Conduct auction of rural property.

Students undertaking the course take approximately 1 - 2 weeks to finish. However, there is no time restriction and you may choose to complete studies in more or less time. 


Training and assessment  

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 is a combination of assessment tasks that require written responses and include:

  • multiple choice questions 
  • short answer questions 
  • and either 1 or 2 of the following:- 
    • case study 
    •  demonstration 
    • workplace project 

Students are assessed according to whether or not they have achieved the performance criteria for each element specified in the units of competency they are undertaking. This method of assessment judges performance against a prescribed standard, not against other students. Students are assessed as 'competent' or 'not yet competent'.

It is the responsibility of the assessor to ensure all aspects of the assessment process are

  • valid 
  • reliable 
  • fair 
  • flexible 

Assessment is conducted within approximately 48 hours of submission.

Completed assignment may be uploaded onto the website for marking – there is a 2mg upload limited, or emailed or posted to the College.
