Case for Endorsement – Property Services Real Estate


The case for endorsement is focusing on:

  • potential market disruption caused by new technologies and business models challenging the traditional agent role
  • the need to clearly establish the links between the requirements of the state and territory regulators and the real estate qualifications
  • emerging regulatory requirements around housing/commercial environmental sustainability
  • the requirements of industry to future-proof job roles and occupational outcomes
  • the need to transition the qualifications to the 2012 Standards for Training Packages.

The project has focused on occupational analysis as a basis for rebuilding the qualification and unit structure to align with current and emerging work practices and to support a more consistent regulatory approach.

This approach will see a streamlining of the training requirement and an opportunity for regulators to simplify licensing requirements and reduce red tape while supporting a clear pathway for new entrants into the industry.

A technical advisory group (TAG), chaired by Danielle Andrews from the REIA, has been established by the IRC to oversee the project and provide technical input.  The TAG includes representatives from employers, employees, industry, RTOs and regulators.

The TAG has undertaken a full redevelopment of the Certificate IV as a licensing qualification, a redevelopment to the Diploma to provide a professional development pathway and to house higher skill endorsements. Additionally, the Certificate III has been developed as entry into the industry at an administration level.
