Accredited CPD seminars
At your office
As a completely free supplement to our CPD seminars you will receive access to ‘myLearning’ our unique CPD certified e-learning platform, allowing you to work on your self-development, professionalism and CPD qualifications in your own time.
Our interactive online learning portal offers easy access to relevant, topical information to help you and your staff understand and manage all possible property related problems. The topics explain exactly what you need to look for, why you need to be vigilant and what to do if you suspect any issues. Once you have completed a section you can then print out your CPD certificate as evidence of your success, so get in touch to discuss this unique online Continuing Professional Development opportunity by requesting a call back below or continue reading to find out more about myLearning.
The myLearning platform consists of sixteen modules covering a comprehensive range of property issues and problems.
The user then works their way through each twenty minute module towards a short test at the end of the course. Upon passing the test you can then print off your CPD Certification Service verified certificate.

Some of the benefits of the platform are:
Save money - We provide you with access to our online portal for no additional charge once you book a CPD seminar.
Flexibility - learning can be done at a time, place and pace that suits you. Downtime at work, organised 'learning periods' or working at home, there are many possibilities as our courses are available 24/7. Learners are not pressured to 'keep up' or conversely feel that they are waiting for the 'stragglers' as they can dictate their own pace.
Evidence - downloadable certificates provide evidence of learning and assessment success.
Up-to-date - training course materials are detailed, accurate and relevant. All our e-learning training courses are always up-to-date: as legislation changes so do the relevant references within the training course. You don't need to do anything as the amendments are applied automatically.
Employability - Shows a clear commitment to self-development and professionalism. CPD enables students to stand out when applying for jobs. Undertaking CPD training in any topic is a way of showing commitment to your development.
