Current until Sept Auctioneer's Licence


Getting your Auctioneer's Licence in QLD

When deciding to become an Auctioneer in QLD you need to know that there are two different types of Auctioneer Licences available, a Real Estate Auctioneer and a Chattels Auctioneer.
The Real Estate Auctioneer's Licence is fairly self-explanatory, it allows you to sell exactly that - Real Estate. The Chattel Auction Licence in Qld allows you to sell a range of goods from cars, furniture antiques and livestock, virtually everything else other than Real Estate.

To obtain an Auctioneer's Licence in Qld you must first complete the required study. The cost of the 3 day Auctioneer's Course is $1200.00.

Complete Property Training conduct Auctioneer's Licence courses regularly from their Head Office Training Centre on the Sunshine Coast. These courses cover the following 6 units of competency needed to hold an Auction Licence in Queensland (Chattel Auctioneer and Real Estate Auctioneer):-

CPPDSM4004A Conduct auction
CPPDSM4038A Conduct goods, chattels or equipment clearing sale or auction
CPPDSM4014A Market property for sale
CPPDSM4019A Prepare for auction and complete sale
CPPDSM4006A Establish and manage agency trust accounts
BSBSMB406 Manage small business finances

Once the study has been completed you can then apply for your Auctioneer's Licence which will allow you to conduct auctions independently. You can choose to be a Chattel Auctioneer which allows you to auction cars, livestock, furniture or any other form of chattel OR a Real Estate Auctioneer OR both.

Our course is run in conjunction with Gordon Macdonald from The Auction Group, as we believe the skill's training is equally as important as the legalities.

The Auctioneer's Course classroom attendance time is three (3) days in duration with one day devoted to classroom learning and assessment and the other 2 days to hands-on skills training covering aspects such as the auction call, reserve setting meetings, creating energy and flow.

Gordon and Peter will ensure you learn the skills necessary to be at the very top of this Industry.

Upon successful completion you will apply to the Office of Fair Trading and pay the Licence fee; it will take up to 4 weeks for your Licence to be issued.
