NOTIFICATION UPDATE - Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT (CPD)
Estate agents are, in terms of the Education Regulations, obligated to undergo continuing professional development and attain 60 points over a rolling cycle of three years. For the past 5 years, the CPD programme has been conducted in two different platforms which are CONTACT SESSIONS (where estate agents attend events physically) and E-LEARNING where estate agents could do their CPD online.
Due to the raging COVID-19 pandemic, the EAAB is unable to rollout the usual venue-based CPD programme. In an endeavour to ensure that the CPD programme is undertaken, the EAAB will conduct the programme via the E-LEARNING platform. Under normal circumstances, estate agents are given a choice on how to obtain their CPD points but unfortunately this year things are going to be different under the current pandemic we are all facing. The decision to conduct CPD via the E-LEARNING platform was premised on the need to find a safer and better way to provide services to the industry and also to minimise the risk that contact sessions and crowded places can bring to the lives of the estate agents and the EAAB staff.
The EAAB would like to take this opportunity to apologise for the delay in providing CPD on time and we wish to thank all the estate agents for their patience.
A date will be communicated as soon as CPD (E-Learning) is loaded and available on the estate agents’ portal on the EAAB website.
