Course Outcomes and Pathways

A Certificate of Registration (Real Estate Salesperson), issued by the Office of Fair Trading, will allow you to be employed by a Licensed Real Estate Agent in a sales or property management role.

The Certificate of Registration (Real Estate Salesperson) course requires completion of the following units: -

  • CPPDSM3019 Communicate with clients in the property industry
  • CPPDSM4080A Work in the real estate industry
  • CPPDSM4008A Identify legal and ethical requirements of property sales to complete agency work
  • CPPDSM4007A Identify legal and ethical requirements of property management to complete agency work

Successful completion of this course will meet the educational requirements for a Certificate of Registration from the NSW Office of Fair Trading.

Students undertaking the course take approximately 7-10 days to finish, however, there is no time restriction and you may choose to complete studies in more or less time.

A Statement of Attainment will be issued upon completion of the course.

Completion of this course will also provide 'advanced standing' in the Real Estate Agent, Stock and Station Agent and Business Agent Licensing programmes. College staff can assist you in determining the pathways that are most appropriate for your career plan.


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

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

Students are assessed according to whether 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'.

Completed assignments may be uploaded onto the website for marking or emailed or posted to the College.

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.
