The Deposit Disputes – Apportioning Liability course covers the dispute process, key responsibilities when compiling both the inventory and check out reports and the documents that enable the adjudicators to make an informed decision.
The second course, Commercial Inventories – How to Cost the Report focuses on the information and legislation around commercial inventory property report which provides a basis for clerks to develop a cost option that best suits and aligns with their service model.
Head of InventoryBase Academy, Sián Hemming-Metcalfe, says: “I know only too well how difficult and equally rewarding the role of a property report provider is. It is so much more than people expect and can be both demanding and diverse with no two days ever the same.
“What is clear, is that despite the benefits of a flexible self employed role or as an employed or in house-inventory clerk, they all require training and more importantly, support and guidance that not only meets the needs of the service provider but those of the client. The expectations of the industry continue to increase as the sector becomes more regulated and without a support network, clerks often find themselves managing the stresses and strains alone so InventoryBase made a commitment from the very outset to make training and support a priority.”
