Frequently Asked Questions
You need to undertake a prescribed course and be a member of a valuation industry body. TAFE NSW Bachelor of Property valuation fulfils both of these requirements as it is recognised for membership by the Australian Property Institute.
It is a degree specifically designed for people wishing to enter the valuation industry, and is focused on multiple valuation areas. While many universities have property degrees that touch on some aspects of valuation, the TAFE NSW Bachelor of Property Valuation covers all areas in detail and includes, where possible, practicals, field days, and guest speakers, helping to enhance students’ learning.
TAFE NSW Bachelor of Property Valuation is recognised for membership by the Australian Property Institute (API), the leading valuation industry body in Australia, from student membership upwards to full membership. It also contains the academic requirements to become Certified Practising Valuer (CPV), once studies are successfully completed and sufficient work experience has been obtained.
Other universities offer property courses that are recognised by the API, but these may not contain CPV requirements, or go into valuation practise to the same depth.
Successful completion of the TAFE NSW Bachelor of Property Valuation degree (and API membership) will allow you to practise across all fields of valuation. Most people think of residential valuation, and while this is a part of valuation practise, graduates work in commercial, retail, industrial, specialised, government and other related areas.
There are also opportunities to work for Government valuation departments, such as The Valuer-Generals office, Transport NSW, Dept. of Lands, and the Dept of Planning, local councils, property developers, major valuation firms across a range of areas, research houses, and fund managers.
