Being a licensed Real Estate Agent has many advantages. You are more highly regarded in the industry with the opportunity of a greater earning capacity as well as more options in your work structure

As part of the industry reforms that came into effect on the 23rd March 2020, all assistant agents (certificate of registration holders) will be required to transition to a class 2 license within a 4 year period once they have commenced working in the industry.

Under The Hammer offers programs that meet the licensing requirements as set out by the state regulators. Learning from some of the best in the business, our trainers are highly qualified with years of quality experience; while still being currently active in real estate roles.

Our years of real estate knowledge is exhibited through our training techniques with our practical assessments all being based on real life experiences in the industry. Specialising in this designated field. 

For those currently working in real estate, Under The Hammer Training offers an effective portfolio-based approach that looks at your current and past work experience, knowledge and skills that may reduce the amount of time and units required to complete the course. Upon enrolment one of our trainers will assist you in this process in order to ascertain which units of competency can be marked as competent based on your evidence and levels of experience.


This course meets the educational requirements necessary to obtain a real estate licence in NSW issued by the NSW Office of Fair Trading.

Upon successful completion of this course you will receive a nationally recognised, accredited Certificate IV in Real Estate Practice from Under The Hammer.

If you are an experienced real estate professional currently working in the industry, we provide a fantastic opportunity to upgrade to a full real estate agent’s licence using a combination of portfolio assessment and gap training.

This course is made up of 18 units of competency and is expected to be completed within 12 months of enrolment.

For those already working in the real estate industry, the prospect of completing lengthy assessments that mirror daily work can feel gruelling and pointless. Under The Hammer Training’s portfolio-based approach to assessment allows experienced students to combine written knowledge assessments with a collection of actual work samples, photographs/videos, stories of practice, logbooks and supervisor reports to demonstrate their competence.

This workplace-based delivery mode means that our students are actively progressing towards completing their courses every day they go to work and perform their relevant duties. Consequently, students complete their qualifications as quickly as it takes them to collect the relevant practical evidence and complete their knowledge assessments.


Eligibility Criteria

Participants must be able to demonstrate at least 2 years of consecutive practical experience in either sales or property management.

Participants must be able to provide documentation to support their industry experience.

Participants must be able to have a third party observation report completed by either a supervisor or their licensee in charge.

Participants must be current in the Real Estate industry, confirming that they have not been inactive for a period in excess of the past 12 months.


Use your industry experience and knowledge to save study time.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process where experience, skills and knowledge that you may possess through work and life experience, or other unrecognised training can be formally recognised. This can be for a single unit of competency, part of a qualification or a full qualification.

Evidence must be provided and assessed against the relevant training package requirements, and a gap analysis is conducted to determine any voids in competency. The learner may then be awarded full or partial RPL competency. Where gaps exist, the learner must undertake the required training and assessments in order to be awarded competency in that particular unit.

All learners training with Under The Hammer Training may apply for recognition of prior learning, and are requested to completed a pre-enrolment questionnaire. By completing this questionnaire, it assists our trainers with the evaluation of your education levels, work experience (past and present), and current skills and knowledge, which will allow them to work with you through the recognition process.

Experienced agents completing training are invited to apply for RPL Assessment which will determine how much of their industry experience can be recognised as prior learning towards the allocated units.

For more information regarding Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), please contact our support staff who can arrange for you to talk to one of our qualified assessors.


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.
