Step 1 - Self Assessment
This is where you tell us about your skills, knowledge and experience so that we can assess your eligibility for the units of competency.
Once you’ve enrolled in the Recognition program and pay the first instalment fee of $600 you will receive access to the self-assessment questionnaire.
This tool will guide you through the steps to complete your self-assessment questionnaire.
The questionnaire includes:
These questions ask you to rate your level of experience and/or the frequency that you complete certain activities (eg how often are you actively involved in negotiation processes to complete a listing of a property for sale or lease).

You are then asked to provide more detailed information on the particular areas in which you have experience and expertise; basically you are asked to tell your story.
In this section, you are required to complete a checklist of evidence that will support your application in the next stage of the process.
Step 2 - Review and Recommendation
Now it’s your turn! An assessor will review your self-assessment information to consider your eligibility for RPL.
You will receive an email to arrange a time for the assessor to have a face-to-face or telephone interview with you. We call this a "competency conversation", the goal is to confirm and deepen our understanding of your experience as it relates to the units of competency in the qualification.
Once this has been completed REINSW will advise you in writing of the outcome and our recommendations on how to move forward. The outcome could be one of the following:
Full Recognition granted for units of competency - no further action required
Partial Recognition of competency for units of competency - gap training or assessment to be undertaken
No Recognition of competency for units of competency - full training and assessment required
Step 3 - Recognition
You will also be asked to provide supporting documentation and a third-party report from your supervisor or licensed agent to confirm your work history and competence
It is important to note that recognition for the full qualification is highly unlikely as REINSW takes into account the high-risk areas of compliance with legislation and trust accounting very seriously and will require a gap assessment to confirm competency in these areas.
If you need to complete any training for full units of competency, REINSW can provide that in a combination of online and face to face options.
If you require two or fewer clusters of units to complete the requirements of the qualification, this will be covered by the recognition fee you have already paid.
If you require three clusters of units, you will be given a 50% discount on the full cost of the training.
If you require more than four clusters, we will transfer your recognition fee less an administration fee of $150, to your training costs for the full course (this will likely be a more cost-effective option for you).
On successful completion of all gap learning and assessment, a certificate and transcript will be issued.
