Not-for-profit accreditation scheme safeagent has partnered with Landlord Accreditation Scotland to provide specialist training for agents north of the border.
LAS is the national accreditation scheme for Scottish landlords and agents, and the partnership will provide face-to-face and online training.
In Scotland it is now compulsory for key individuals in every lettings agency in a supervisory role to meet a minimum level of training. Those who have to be qualified as part of the Letting Agent Register process must have a relevant qualification covering essential aspects of letting agency work.
Both LAS and safeagent are training providers whose qualifications meet the requirements for agents seeking to access the Register - safeagent for its Foundation Lettings Course (Scotland) and LAS for its LETWELL programme.
LAS also runs a series of face-to-face training courses to enable letting agents to adopt best practice and ensure they remain updated with changes to legislation, while safeagent provides a range of online training modules specifically for Scottish letting agents.
