Agents Representative Victoria

Agents Representative Victoria

In Victoria, an agent's representative is employed by or acts for a licensed estate agent, and with written authority, can perform any of the legal functions of that estate agent. For example, an agent's representative can act as a salesperson or property manager, but cannot operate an estate agency business.

It is not necessary to apply to work as an agent's representative. Instead, your employer is required to verify that you are eligible to be an agent's representative, and notify the Business Licensing Authority (BLA) when you start work.

You do not need to be currently employed in the industry in order to undertake the course; many students do the course as a means of securing employment.

A real estate agents representative registration certificate allows you to work under the supervision of licenced Estate Agent in property sales or management.

Training and assessment

There is a combination of assessment tasks that require written responses and include:-

  • multiple choice questions
  • short answer questions
  • and a combination of the following:-
    • case study
    • written demonstration
    • workplace project


Assessment is competency based. Competency-based assessment is largely activity-based and practical. However, competence also implies that an individual demonstrates an understanding of the knowledge that is the basis of the practical task being carried out

Students are assessed according to whether or not they have achieved the performance criteria for each element specified in the units of competency they are undertaking. This method of assessment judges performance against a prescribed standard, not against other students. Students are assessed as 'competent' or 'not yet competent'.

It is the responsibility of the assessor to ensure all aspects of the assessment process are

  • valid
  • reliable
  • fair
  • flexible

Assessment is conducted within approximately 48 hours of submission.

Completed assignment may be uploaded onto the website for marking (there is a 8MB upload limit), emailed or posted to the College.
