Benefits of continuous learning

Some ways to enhance your career include moving into a more demanding role, perhaps mentoring others or becoming a 'senior' person in your agency. Continuously learning on the job, supplemented by attendance at conferences, training, network and branch events, can help you to be more accomplished, successful, recognised in your current role as well as to move to a more responsible one.

You can also broaden your knowledge and skills in other areas by thinking about becoming an auctioneer, business broker, commercial representative, retail centre manager, property developer or other related property careers. Many training courses are available to help you move into new areas of property.

And, of course, it's really critical that you keep up to date with changes in the industry - legislation, codes of practice, documentation and forms, to ensure that you operate at the highest level of your profession. The annual requirement for CPD helps you to maintain currency, but many of the most successful real estate people don't just stop at their CPD requirement, acquiring many points over and above.
