If you were trained prior to 2017 then you will need to contact us

How frequently do I have to update my skills?

Free updates are provided every 12-18 months. Occasionally there will be additional updates to complete if new legislation is released that you need to know about in a timely fashion. You are committed to ensuring you are always being ahead in your property knowledge.

What happens if I run late for training or I have to leave early?

It is a full day’s training and learning is accumulative throughout the day so it is important that you attend the whole course. We will only accept late arrivals in the first half-hour as any later is disruptive to the whole group. Please organise school or daycare pick-ups as we finish (promptly) at 4.30 pm.

Is there any parking?

Not always, this is dependent on the venue. We will let you know if parking is available 2 days before the training.

What happens if I move to another real estate agency?

You need to update your Centre for Liveability Real Estate website profile with your new contact details. Your Liveability Real Estate Specialist ID card with your membership number will stay with you wherever you go.

What if I completed my training prior to 2015 so I am not a member of the Centre for liveability Real Estate?

Liveability Real Estate Specialists are now a nationally recognized membership group which is now supported by CSIRO. You must be a registered member to be able to access the exclusive Liveability Features Appraisal Checklist, property listing trade marks and annual online training refresh.
