Two accreditation schemes have joined forces to provide specialist training for Scottish letting agents
Landlord Accreditation Scotland (LAS) and safeagent have partnered to provide Scottish letting agents with both face-to-face and online training so they can meet the qualification requirements to be part of the country’s Letting Agent Register.
Both LAS and safeagent are training providers whose qualifications meet the requirements for agents seeking to access the register – safeagent for its Foundation Lettings Course (Scotland) and LAS for its LETWELL programme.
In addition to this, LAS runs a series of face-to-face training courses to enable letting agents to adopt best practice and ensure they remain updated with changes to legislation, while safeagent provides a range of online training modules.
Isobel Thomson, chief executive of safeagent, said: “We’re delighted to work with LAS. We have similar aims – promoting best practice through professional development – so the partnership feels like a natural fit.
“Together we’re able to support agents in Scotland with their training whether face to face or online, helping to raise standards across the PRS.”
Elspeth Boyle, director of LAS, said: “We’re always looking for ways to provide the most wide-range of training options for agents.
“Adding safeagent’s range of specialist online courses to LAS is great news for Scottish agents who are looking to undertake their learning online and we look forward to marketing our offerings to safeagents.”
