A Certificate of Registration is essential for anyone in the ACT  looking to be employed in the property services industry. By completing this course, you will gain an introductory understanding of all aspects of working in the real estate industry, including an understanding of both sales and property management, as well as learning communication techniques and strategies that will assist you in getting off to a successful start in your new role.

Upon successful completion of the course, you will be issued with a “Statement of Attainment” outlining the required units of competency. This statement can be used to apply to Access Canberra, along with the necessary application in order to receive your Certificate of Registration.

If you are a new or continuing learner undertaking nationally recognised training, in order to receive your qualification or statement of attainment you will require a Unique Student Identifier (USI). If you don’t have a USI we will not be able to issue your qualification or statement of attainment.

Your USI will give you access to an online record of the training you have done since 1 January 2015. You will also be able to produce a comprehensive transcript of your training. This can be used when applying for a job, seeking a credit transfer or demonstrating pre-requisites when undertaking further training.

Collecting and reporting a student’s Unique Student Identifier (USI) is a requirement under Commonwealth legislation and a condition of your enrolment.

Creating a Unique Student Identifier (USI) only takes a few minutes and is free. It only needs to be created once and will stay with you for life, so you use this USI every time you enrol into a nationally recognised training program. This applies to:

  • New students
  • Pre-enrolled students
  • Continuing students
  • School students completing nationally recognised training

Creating your USI

You can create your USI here: or you can give permission for Under The Hammer Training to do it for you by providing us with a copy of your ID.
