"Cutting edge training from the Australian College of Professionals"

Estate Agents Co-operative (EAC) and the Australian College of Professionals (ACOP) have partnered to provide the real estate industry with the highest quality training for new and experienced agents. Both organisations share a philosophy that great agents come from motivation, skill and continuous improvement.

Develop your skills and knowledge with a range of professional development options, designed to suit agency principals (Licensee-In-Charge, Sales Agents and Property Managers). Training programs include Certificate of Registration for Assistant Agents, Licensing programs, Diploma-level programs for Class 1 licence requirements, and of course Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses. With face-to-face, webinars, online and tailored in-house options, the team of industry experts from ACOP deliver practical training that will help you and your team stay at the top of your game.

Make sure you include that you are an EAC Member when you enrol into a program, as this will trigger Member discounts for many of the training programs.

Certificate of Registration (Assistant Agents)

Those people commencing working in the NSW property industry are required to apply for a Certificate of Registration with NSW Fair Trading which involves gaining a Statement of Attainment for a Certificate of Registration.

ACOP conducts a four (4) day workshop, as well as an online program, for people to complete the program to achieve the Statement of Attainment required to obtain a Certificate through NSW Fair Trading.

ACOP courses are delivered by current industry professionals, accountant, psychologists and solicitors. This means that students are able to benefit from the analysis of real cases and scenarios and receive the most up-to-date knowledge of legislation and industry best practices.
