Becoming a qualified auctioneer with Entry Education
If you live in NSW, the department of Fair Trading requires all auctioneers to complete an Auctioneer Accreditation course.
The auctioneer course is composed of three units of study taken from Certificate IV in Real Estate Practice (CPP41419). To be eligible to enrol in this course in NSW, you must hold a Real Estate Licence, or have completed 15 units of the CPP41419 certificate course.
The three units cover the pre-auction process, conducting the sale by auction, and completing the post-auction process including properly executing the contract of sale.
During the course we focus on the practical components of running an auction including displaying a home for auction. The course also addresses the legal requirements of an auction from setting up on the day to closing the sale.
On completion of the course, you should have the knowledge and skills required to conduct an auction that both achieves a successful sale and meets legislative requirements. To help you achieve this, we run two mock auctions during the auctioneering course.
If you’re ready to become a qualified auctioneer and dominate the property game, get started with Entry Education today.
