The Council for Estate Agencies is implementing a new CPD Framework with effect from 1st October 2019.
With effect from the 2019/2020 CPD cycle, i.e. from 1 October 2019 onwards, KEOs, practising directors/partners and salespersons are required to fulfil:
4 x CPD Points from Professional Competencies
2 x CPD Points from Generic Competencies
CPD courses under Professional Competencies (previously referred to as Core course) provide salespersons opportunities to develop and deepen their knowledge in estate agency work.
With the new CPD Framework, all salesperson are also required to attend a CPD course under Generic Competencies (previously referred to as Non-core course) which will contribute towards salespersons’ overall personal development and sharpen their soft skills. There are 18 categories under this Generic competency: including those on leadership, digital literacy, communication, and creative thinking.
