The RLA is offering a range of new courses next year – with the timetable for 2018 released this week.

Four new courses have already been announced, with online courses in Anti-Social Behaviour and Advanced Landlord and classroom courses in Energy Efficiency Regulations and Practical Sustainability and Energy Efficiency all new for 2018 – with more to follow.

With new rules regarding Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards due to be introduced in April next year it is more important than ever that landlords are aware of their obligations.

From that date, any properties rented out in the private rented sector will need a minimum energy performance rating of E on an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).

The new rules cover all new lets and renewals and will be extended to all existing tenancies on 1st April 2020.

Anti-social behaviour is something almost every landlord has or will experience and our new course will provide you with the tools you need to tackle the issues, whether your tenant is the perpetrator or  the victim.

The Advanced landlord course will help experienced landlords and agents hone their skills, and shares some of the complex issues and situations landlords can find themselves in.

There are currently 400 regulations that impact upon the private rented sector and learning with the RLA keeps you up-to-date with the many obligations a landlord is required to follow.

Our online and classroom training gives you the information you need to be able to properly comply with legislation, ultimately saving your time and money.

RLA training manager Kitty Speakman said: “2018 will see exciting changes for training at the RLA.

“We intend to bring more options for our exitsting customers while introducing initiatives for new customers.

We are keen to reward the loyalty of RLA members who account for three quarters of our course bookings by giving them 20% off the price of each course, a larger saving than ever before.

“Many more pertinent topics for landlords, agents and local authorities will be available, with more ways to learn.”
