This National Certificate is the qualification that meets the legislative requirements for a licence to operate as a branch manager in the real estate industry.

This National Certificate is awarded to people who have demonstrated competence in the knowledge and skills required of licensed branch managers in the real estate agency industry.

The compulsory section of this qualification allows the candidate to demonstrate knowledge in a range of skills and knowledge required of a branch manager.

Holders of the qualification are able to: outline plans for real estate projects; implement the marketing function; manage the staffing function; facilitate performance of employees and contractors; manage trust accounts; implement internal controls and conduct internal checks and audits; manage the preparation of real estate contracts; facilitate the discharge of real estate contracts, manage real estate contracts of agency; explain leasing, legal, and financial matters to clients and prospective customers; provide clients and prospective customers with advice on resource management issues; demonstrate understanding of legal matters affecting real estate licensees; and prepare agency agreements and appraisals of commercial and industrial sites and qualify clients.

The elective section of this qualification enables candidates to demonstrate knowledge and skills required for business appraisal, residential appraisal, and rural appraisal.

Holders of this qualification may apply to the Real Estate Agents Authority for a real estate branch manager's licence under the provisions of the Real Estate Agents (Licensing) Regulations 2009. They must do so if they wish to operate as a branch manager in the real estate industry.
