The RG146 Advice in Real Estate course has been specially developed for real estate agents and property investment consultants, qualifying you to legally offer general advice in line with ASIC protocols.

The property investment adviser has limitations as to what products they're able to provide as mandated under ASIC's Regulatory Guide 146, and this course ensures that you're operating legally within their regulatory requirements.  Should you wish to undertake further study, it will also adequately prepare you for a career in property investment advice.

Delivered by Mentor Education, and run in partnership with the Real Estate Institute of Australia and the Institute of Public Accountants, the RG146 Advice in Real Estate course is the premium academic pathway that will enable you to provide general advice compliant with ASIC's regulatory requirements, ensuring quality, growth and sustainability.

This course will allow property investment advisers, mortgage brokers, accountants, real estate agents and property developers to discuss the general drivers and considerations associated with a property investment decision.

Outcomes
Upon completion of RG146 Advice in Real Estate course, you'll have satisfactorily fulfilled ASIC’s RG146 requirements and will be able to offer general advice on financial products and services.  This will also allow you to provide factual advice on what the products are and what they do, for example:

  • Loans
  • Life insurance
  • Retirement planning
  • General insurance
  • SMSFs
  • Superannuation
