I have previously undertaken real estate studies. Will these studies count towards my Property Manager Registration?
Potentially yes, however we need to know what units of competency you have completed before we can give you a definitive answer. Any units you have completed that meet the Property Manager Registration requirements will be credit transferred at no cost to you, meaning your Property Manager Registration may cost you less and you may have less studying to do if you already hold some of the required units of competency.

We had extensive discussions with CBS about this, and there is no clear cut response we can offer as it will depend on your role and the responsibilities of your role. We suggest getting in touch with CBS licensing (they’re a very friendly and helpful bunch of people) and having a chat with them on your individual circumstance.
