CPD Training Roadmap and Requirement

KEOs and salespersons can refer to CPD Training Roadmap as an advisory guide and FAQs on Training Roadmap when they sign up for core CPD courses.

 

CPD Training Roadmap is a structured and comprehensive framework is to guide KEOs and salespersons in building up their capability and professionalism. Under the CPD training framework, core courses are grouped into three categories:

 

Core CPD Course Categories:

C1 focuses on developing and enhancing the professional ethics of KEOs and salespersons, and promoting their knowledge of the Estate Agents Act and Regulations.

 

C2 is designed to keep KEOs and salespersons abreast of the latest laws, government policies and regulations related to estate agency work and property transactions.

 

C3 is aimed at raising the professional standards of KEOs and salespersons through learning best practices relating to estate agency work and deepening knowledge of CEA's practice guidelines.

 

In addition to the minimum 6 CPD credit hours per year, KEOs and salespersons must attend at least one core CPD course under each of the three categories over three consecutive CPD cycles (3-year period).  This is to encourage KEOs and salespersons to attend a diversity of core courses and not to focus on any particular areas.

 

 * Those who fail to fulfill the training requirement will not be able to renew their licence and registration at the end of the third CPD cycle.

 

Below is an illustration of the new CPD requirement.
