McGrath Licence Workshop program

$3,000.00 $1,500.00

This McGrath Licence Workshop program is an intensive workshop program of training specifically for McGrath Estate Agent staff with a minimum of one year current industry experience.

A participant who successfully completes this course will be awarded a CPP40307 Certificate IV in Property Services (Real Estate), issued by MRT Training – RTO 41529.

The Program is designed in such a way that we offer recognition of the experience you have gained in the property industry and our workshop sessions focus on covering the units where most agents require additional training to become fully licensed, and therefore, potential Licensees in Charge (NSW) of a property business, under the current Regulations of NSW Fair Trading.

McGrath Licence Workshop Program


MRT Training has strict course eligibility requirements for those considering undertaking this McGrath Licence Workshop program.

A very important component of the program is for the RTO to be able to ensure participants are experienced agents.  Candidates will be required to provide a portfolio of evidence demonstrating this experience as a real estate professional.


Candidates need to have been in the property industry for at least the past year – in Sales, Property Management, or an admin/support (CSM) role.

Any exceptions to this requirement will need to have a special exemption granted by the CEO of MRT Training (email:

The USI (Unique Student Identifier) must be provided, before any completion documentation can be issued by the RTO.

The USI must be included in the online Registration Form, available at this link.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

RPL is a formal assessment process that seeks to recognise the skills and knowledge already gained in the industry. Competency based principles of validity, reliability, flexibility and, above all, fairness, are used when assessing claims for RPL.

Experience outside the property industry can also be considered in this process. Any “gaps” in the individual participant’s program will be provided for completion by Distance mode, at no additional cost.

This program is targeted to New South Wales agents.

NSW Real Estate Agent licence application requirements can be found at this link.

RPL Portfolio

The portfolio for RPL should include the following:

  • A copy of your current Certificate of Registration
  • Letters from at least 2 Licensed Real Estate Agents (who have known you in a professional capacity for at least one full year and can verify your current industry experience and suitability to be a Real Estate Licence holder. These letters should include the agent’s licence number)
  • A CV or resume detailing your work experience record for the past 5 years (this should be a brief overview)
  • A spreadsheet with your property listings, or portfolio of managed properties, for the past 6 months
  • Client testimonials with specific personal reference
  • A selection of your marketing and advertising material (for private treaty, auction sales and/or leasing brochures, newspaper advertisements, and other promotional material)

*NB that a sample listing presentation (if you use one) will likely include sample marketing materials, client testimonials and some current or previous listings – there is no need to “double up”.


The RPL portfolio is an integral part of this program. It must be submitted in soft copy format, and must be presented for evaluation no later than the first day of the program.

Assessment activities for each of the Workshops sessions will be completed AFTER the respective Workshop session, and candidates will submit their assessment activities as soft copy submissions.

Candidates will be assessed as ‘competent’ or ‘not yet competent’ based on the submission of the required assessment activities and your portfolio submission. Your assessment outcome will be provided within the two weeks following the program.

Any participant in this Workshop program who is not able to meet the RPL criteria, will be able to complete the “gap” units, as a Distance program (at their own pace, and assessment submissions will be determined in consultation with the Trainer/Assessor), and this will be at no additional cost.

Duration of this course

The program will have content delivered in six (6) or seven (7) workshops, each of two (2) hours duration, delivered intensively over 3 days, approximately one week apart. It includes all training manuals, assessment, tutorial support, and certification. The assessment activities for each workshop is estimated to take the average participant between 2 and 4 hours for each workshop.


Successful completion of all aspects of the program will result in the participant being issued a CPP40307 Certificate IV in Property Services (Real Estate) by MRT Training – RTO 41529. This is the qualification required to meet current NSW Fair Trading requirements for the NSW Real Estate Agent Licence.

Agents will be able to lodge their application to Fair Trading using this course AFTER the new reforms come into force on 23rd March, 2020 – assuming they have completed the assessments for some of the units of competency for this course.
