Frequently asked questions

What does PIPA do?

The Property Investment Professionals of Australia (PIPA) has been formed by industry practitioners with the objective of representing the industry and raising the professional standards of all operators servicing consumers in property investment.

By adhering to a Code of Conduct and obtaining professional standards of accreditation through education, PIPA members demonstrate to the investing public, government, regulators, media, and other stakeholders within the property investment industry their commitment to excellence.

What is the PIPA Accreditation Program?

The Property Investment Professionals of Australia (PIPA) has developed the PIPA Accreditation Program, a professional industry award, to address the need for professionals in the property investment industry and related industries to be appropriately qualified to give advice in property investment.

PIPA is committed to the development of industry standards in property investment advice. It has developed the PIPA Accreditation Program as the first step in quality education for all those involved in giving property investment advice to property investors.

How is the course delivered?

The PIPA Accreditation Program is an online self-paced industry accreditation course, consisting of six modules.

Assessment is a blended approach, consisting of a final exam and end of topic assessments for each module, plus a skills assessment as a third component of Module 6.

Each module is designed to be studied at your own pace, with a time limit to complete each module of six months from the date of enrolment. Participants who successfully complete the program and satisfy PIPA criteria will be able to apply to become a QPIA® accredited member and use the post-nominal QPIA® (Qualified Property Investment Adviser).
