Resident Letting Agent Licensing Course

Resident Letting Agents Licensing Course

The Resident Letting Agents Course or RLA course is designed for people looking to get into the management right industry, specifically onsite management.

This course is not to be mistaken for a Real Estate Salesperson Course in which you wish to work from a Real Estate Office doing property management, rentals and sales.

The Resident Letting Agents Course covers 15 units of competency and all units are designed for on-site management. One of the most important components of this course is the Trust Accounting. Trust accounting is extremely important in this industry as you will be collecting rent on an owner’s behalf, this money is not yours, it is the owners. Only a licensed agent is capable of opening and operating a trust account.

An Resident Letting Agents license will allow you to run a management rights business. There are major benefits for upgrading to a full real estate license, however, it is not mandatory for your role.

A Resident Letting Agents Licence allows you to:

  • - rent out and manage units in a building complex (on behalf of the owners and body corporate)
  • - collect rents in the complex
  • - operate a trust account.

How to obtain a Resident Letting Agents License in Queensland?

The Resident Letting Agents License is fairly simple to obtain. Once you have completed your 15 units of competency with a Registered Training Organisation you will be issued with a Statement of Attainment. This document informs the Office of Fair Trading that you have passed all of your assessments and are deemed competent.
You will need to lodge this Statement with The Office of Fair Trading (they issue ALL licenses; no Training Organisation can issue a license). Depending on how many years you wish to have your license, fees apply.
Once you have lodged this, it can take up to 6 weeks to receive the hard copy license from the OFT, however, if an employer is seeking proof of your license you can provide proof that it has been lodged and you are awaiting the physical copy.

How long does the Resident Letting Agents Licensing Course Take?

Private Tuition:

Private tuition is available upon request and can really speed up the process. With one on one private tuition, it is personalised one on one training with one of our experts.
Private tuition may require you to complete more homework and familiarising with the learning material before the training begins.

For all training options it is important to note that once you receive a Statement of Attainment from Property Training Australia, stating your competence, you will need to lodge this with the Office of Fair Trading for your license.
All licenses are issued by the government NOT the training organisation. The QLD government (Office of Fair Trading) will have a licensing cost depending on how many years you want your license valid. Once you have lodged with the Office of Fair Trading it can take up to 6 weeks for them to deliver the physical license. However, if a future employer or business progression requires your license, you can prove that you have lodged and paid for the license and you are simply waiting for the physical copy from the government.

Do you offer VET student loans or Payment plans?

Property Training Australia does not operate under the umbrella of VET student loans training.
We do however offer in house payment plans. No Statement of Attainment will be issued prior to the course being paid for. If it is in-class study the course must be paid in full before class begins.
For full details on payment plans email: your inquiry.

What is the process of getting my Resident Letting Agent’s License after completing your course?

Once you have successfully completed your 15 units with Property Training Australia you will be issued with your Statement of Attainment.

You will be required to lodge this paperwork with the Office of Fair Trading (QLD Government) who issue ALL licenses.
