The length of time it will take you to finish your training will depend on many things. All learners learn at different paces. It will depend on your knowledge of the real estate industry and any experience you may have, whether you are eligible for credit transfers or RPL.
It will also depend on how much time you set aside to read the learner guides and undertake the assessments, and whether you are attending regular classes.
Every learner learns at a different pace, so you may be able to complete in less time, or you may need to spend extra time to work through the resources and submit your assessments.
