AIIC Announces Training Dates for 2017 – Take a Look

The two-day Guidelines for Inventory Professionals course will be taking place in February, April, June, September and November this year.

The training dates for the course are open to experienced clerks and those new to the industry. They are also suitable for landlords and letting agents who want to gain a comprehensive understanding of the inventory process.

The course includes sessions on check-ins and check-outs, legal guidelines and how to asses property damage. It also covers practical issues, such as dealing with tenants and the business side of being an inventory clerk.

The Chair of the AIIC, Patricia Barber, says: “A professionally compiled inventory has become an integral part of the pre and post-tenancy process.

“Our training courses, which are the best recognised in the industry, help to raise standards and make sure that independent inventories are being compiled fairly, accurately and legally.”

Last year, the AIIC also launched a range of online courses for those unable to attend its training dates.

Barber adds: “Our online courses provide an alternative route to gain membership to the AIIC, and have proved very popular since we launched them last summer.”

The training dates for 2017 are as follows: 18th and 19th February; 8th and 9th April; 10th and 11th June; 9th and 10th September; and 18th and 19th November.

All Guidelines for Inventory Professionals courses will take place at the Hilton Hotel in Bracknell, Berkshire.

Buy-to-let landlords in Northern Ireland can now obtain recognition for their ongoing commitment to professionalism and training. This comes as the Chartered Institute of Housing, in conjunction with the Department for Communities, launched a brand new scheme, aimed at enhancing the Private Rental Sector in the country.

Training programme

The new scheme, entitled, ‘Learning 2 Let,’ is a programme offering all registered private landlords and property professionals in Northern Ireland the chance to gain CIH’s Level 2 Award in Letting and Managing Residential Property at a cut rate. This is a result of bursary support received from the Department for Communities.

Paul Given, Minister for Communities, said, ‘I am delighted to be officially launching the Learning 2 Let programme, which the Department for Communities has committed bursary support to over the next three years.’[1]

‘Private rented accommodation is an important and growing sector in Northern Ireland and while much of the accommodation is very good, this programme aims to assist in making the private rented sector a better place to live more generally, by promoting professional standards in both the management of accommodation and delivery of quality services to tenants in Northern Ireland, he continued.[1]

Given continued by saying, ‘Learning 2 Let offers all registered private landlords and letting agents in Northern Ireland the chance to get this fully accredited CIH qualification at a cost of just £100, so getting qualified has never been easier.’[1]

During the next three years, the programme will be available in different locations around Northern Ireland.

CIH director for Northern Ireland Nicola McCrudden, said, ‘we are delighted to be rolling out the Learning 2 Let programme right across Northern Ireland over the next three years. The funding which the Department for Communities has committed to this programme means that not only can we help private landlords and letting agents to gain a recognised industry qualification at a minimal cost to them, but we can also make private rented accommodation a better option for everyone.’[1]
