The Real Estate Agents Authority in March this year introduced continuing education which for 2012 covers important issues, including disclosure, confidentiality, professional conduct, legislation review and case studies.
Ray White has now presented to just over 1,000 of its members the first part of continuing education covering important points as part of the verified training material. The four sets of regulations including the Real Estate Agents Act, licensing regulations, complaints and discipline and duties of licensees have all been covered. In addition Ray White has produced a legislation handbook for all its members in association with Thomson Reuters that consolidates into one easy to follow volume the requirements under the Professional Code of Conduct and real estate agents license.
Ray White has available 38 sessions for its members that will be conducted throughout New Zealand to ensure the quality of presentation and material is of the highest standard.
All licensees who undertake real estate work are required to complete 10 hours of verified training and 10 hours of non verified training through an approved provider. All Ray White members are provided the continuing education verified training free of charge.
Patricia Love, our group National Training Facilitator, said that it is important the delivery and content of training is of the highest quality. “Being able to set standards in respect of our presentation and just importantly engage our members in discussion is just one of the real benefits of being an approved provider endorsed by the Real Estate Agents Authority.”
