Continuing Professional Development Courses (CPD)

Do you have the required knowledge and skills to stay ahead?

RCN’s CPD courses keep real estate salespersons up to date with the required knowledge and skills to stay ahead and succeed in the industry.

From 1 Oct 2019 (i.e. the 2019-2020 CPD cycle) onwards, KEOs, practicing directors/partners and salespersons are required to fulfill a total of six credits under the new CPD framework, of which four of these credits must be from courses related to professional competencies and two credits must be from courses related to generic competencies.

 

You will be required to attend CPD courses under Generic Competencies to fulfill the CPD requirement. Credits under Generic Competencies cannot be substituted by credits obtained under Professional Competencies. This is to ensure that salespersons also focus on developing their competencies in other essential areas not directly related to their professional knowledge, such as service, leadership and digital literacy.

Fulfilling CPD hours is also a renewal licensing/registration condition stipulated in the Estate Agents (Licensing and Registration) Regulations 2010. Failure to comply will affect their registration and may lead to removal from the Public Register. 

 

The CPD requirement is to ensure that KEOs and Salespersons are equipped with the necessary professional knowledge in estate agency work and continuously upgrade themselves by keep abreast of the latest changes in Government polices and procedures for property transactions. CEA places important emphasis on core subjects as these help improve the professional effectiveness of KEOs and salespersons.
