Jobs For The Trainers

Recommended Posts


People have until the 23 November 2016 to become trained and licensed.

What training must I do to obtain a licence?
There is different training available for landlords and agents. If a person is both a landlord and an agent who requires a licence, they can do agent training and this will be sufficient for their landlord licence as well.

People can choose to go on Rent Smart Wales run training, or they can do approved training offered by authorised trainers. The best option to complete the licensing training is by attending a training course as people can interact and learn from each other and ask questions relevant to their own experiences. However, in the New Year there will also be on-line courses available for those people who do not find attending a course convenient. View the training that is available.

The training for landlords is a one day course delivered in a relaxed environment by trainers with real experience of working in the private rented sector. Around 5,000 landlords have already completed this training under the old voluntary scheme Landlord Accreditation Wales and it has been extremely well received. People find the training informative, relevant and of real value to draw from when running their rental properties.

Approved Training by Authorised Providers

This page will list the courses and training providers suitable for licence purposes. If you do external training, as part of your licence application, you will need to provide evidence of this training, e.g. a certificate from an authorised trainer.

We are currently considering a number of applications; once they have been determined this page will be updated.

So who wants to set up a landlord training company?

Reminds me of the approach taken when it was decided that childminders needed to be professionalised and registration and training became mandatory. About time too with regard to LLs. Many will exit rather than have all the hassle. It will be interesting to see how this works out in Wales.
