The specialist training division of Australasia's fastest growing
real estate group, Harcourts, has just passed the rigorous Australian
Training and Employment Recognition Council assessment process to
be accredited as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) in Queensland.
The Harcourts Academy can now award Statements of Attainment in
Queensland (recognised Australian-wide) in select training units
towards a real estate consultant's compulsory qualification of registration.
Managing Director of Harcourts International Ltd, Mike Green said,
"This is another significant step towards being recognised
as the number 1 real estate group in Australasia. We have put a
lot of resources into The Harcourts Academy as part of our commitment
to industry excellence and providing the most competent and highly
trained professionals for the public."
Training Development Manager for Harcourts Academy, Irene Green,
said "We have long held a reputation for providing outstanding
training within the industry and it seemed a natural progression
to officially meet the Australian Quality Training Framework Standards
for RTOs. We are now in an even stronger position to raise industry
standards and provide our consultants with the ongoing professional
development required to remain current within industry requirements."
Head of Harcourts Academy, Gilbert Enoka said rather than resting
on their laurels, The Harcourts Academy was rigorously pursuing
options in New Zealand to achieve government accreditation as a
Private Training Establishment (PTE) as well as RTO status in other
Australian States. "We are committed to providing access to
ongoing professional development in order to raise industry standards
and help our people to follow a proven career path to personal success."
