The REIT became a Registered Training Organisation in 1999 and first offered the Diploma in Real Estate in 2001. The cornerstone of traditional REIT training has been the course required through legislation to qualify a person to work in real estate. In response to changing learning patterns, the course is today offered via face to face, distance learning by online delivery and distance learning with folder documentation. The REIT also provides members with access to Certificate III, Certificate IV and traineeships in administration and real estate.
Since 2001 the REIT has also offered members the opportunity to complete a Diploma in Real Estate or Diploma in Property Management, which under current legislation in Tasmania, is the primary requirement for principals to legally operate their own real estate business.
The objective of the REIT is to continue to enhance and expand the training services for the industry, as well as to provide increasingly more products and courses.
