Enabling Courses

Sales or Property Management

Do you have a “conditional” Property Representatives licence?

To remove a condition from a property representative the licensee needs to successfully complete an examination set by the Property Agents Board.  It is known as the “enabling examination”.

The enabling examination is based on the topics necessary for the individual’s licence to become unconditional.

That is, if the licence is conditioned to undertake sales functions only then an enabling examination based on property management questions needs to be successfully completed.

Likewise, if the licence is conditioned to undertake property management functions only then an enabling examination based on sales questions would be undertaken to remove the condition.

This type of examination is only available for a two-year period, at which time a licensee will need to undertake the full licensing examination to have a condition lifted.

REIT’s Enabling Courses have been developed to assist you to transition to a full Property Representatives licence. You can choose to attend either the Sales or Property Management course to gain knowledge in order to sit an enabling exam with the Property Agents Board.
