Kick start 2018 by getting your CPD points early: Settlement agents bulletin issue 77 (January 2018)
8 January 2018
Kick start 2018 by getting your CPD points early!
Compulsory Professional Development (CPD) is a legal requirement for all licensed settlement agents. Failure to complete your CPD requirements could result in your triennial certificate not being renewed.
Consumer Protection’s website provides detailed information about the CPD program for licensed settlement agents, including details of the approved subjects for 2018.
The program provided by our contracted trainers is of high quality, with approximately 90% of attendees surveyed in 2017 finding the content of sessions to be relevant and the presenters to be both professional and knowledgeable.
The Australian Institute of Conveyancers (WA Chapter) (AICWA) is under contract to deliver CPD activities to the settlement industry in 2018. The AICWA can be contacted directly for bookings and the first sessions are scheduled for 21 February 2018.
