15 Nov 13

These days it's not uncommon to go through several career changes in your lifetime. As you grow older, develop new skills and change your interests, it's only natural that you might start looking for a new career path.

If you're interested in the property market, a real estate career could be a perfect fit for you. You'll need commitment and drive, but there are great benefits to a role in this sector.

Before you dive headfirst into the real estate world, you'll need to think about training and accreditation. To properly kick start your new property career you should get real estate training from an industry leader. This is where REISA comes in.

REISA offers a range of high level courses to help novices and experts alike achieve their real estate goals. The courses are accredited, so all achievements are nationally recognised, and you can even receive university credit for REISA study.

For a career in real estate sales you should consider completing the Certificate IV in Property Services (Real Estate) before registering with Consumer and Business Services. Those more interested in property management should take the Certificate in Residential Property Management - Level 1 (Essentials) course.

Many people begin their property careers in administrative support. If this sounds like something you're interested in, you could take either the Certificate III in Property Services (Agency) or Certificate IV in Property Services (Real Estate).

The Certificate IV in Home Sustainability Assessment will take you through a wide range of home sustainability topics, including assessing energy and water usage and managing client complaints. It offers units of competency which tie into requirements of the Habitat Partner program and the SA Government's REES assessor program.

There are many other courses to choose from, so if a career in real estate sounds like a good choice for you, get in touch with REISA today.
