The Tenancy Deposit Scheme has launched a six part training programme for letting agents and landlords. The training expands on its existing courses, which have focused on deposit protection and adjudication workshops.
The programme kicks off with the legal issues around setting up a tenancy and the full day course will be led by Solicitor and TDS legal advisor Hilary Crook. The first course starts in March and is available to book now, with future courses being released in the coming months.
Commenting on the launch, Steve Harriott, Chief Executive of TDS said; “Customers have really valued our deposit protection training but told us that they want more detail. These courses all tie back to deposit protection, but take a detailed look at key parts of the tenancy life cycle.
With such a focus on raising standards in the private rented sector, our training is intended to arm the property professional with the insight and very best practice to stay the right side of the law.”
Further dates for the popular TDS Academy Foundation course and adjudication workshop, are also now available. To book, visit https://www.tenancydepositscheme.com/academy
