We are here to help you train and develop your team to deliver the highest standards of customer care with sound industry knowledge at the heart of everything they do.

Our training for letting agents

As the leading provider of private rented sector training since 2008, we know what works and what doesn’t. Our webinars and courses are recognised as formal CPD by the Scottish Government and with a full webinar programme in place, letting agents can plan how to fully integrate training for staff as part of the day to day business. We can ensure compliance for you and your team.

1. Step One

LETWELL Programme

In order to operate as a Letting Agent in Scotland, you are required to first complete a relevant qualification. The LETWELL programme of training provides a qualification which is respected industry wide. If you or a member of your team is ready to take the next step in their lettings career, the LETWELL programme is a natural choice. Full details of how the programme works and the qualification gained can be found here.

2. Step Two

The Letting Agent Compliance Programme

Once you have your qualified, you are required to complete 20 hours of continued professional development (CPD) every three years, 15 of those being formal learning. Whilst this might sound daunting, LAS have made it simple. Completing the Letting Agent Compliance Programme, acquiring meaningful CPD which applies to your actual job, provides you with all 15 hours you need. The 7 modules that make up LACP are designed in line with the letting agent code of practice, and are recognised as formal CPD, allowing your qualification and training to be submitted when your agency renews their letting agent registration.

3. Step Three

Best Practice and CPD sessions

Stage one and two are taken care of but there is always more to learn. At LAS our aim is to promote best practice in all aspects of the private rented sector, and your personal commitment to update your skills and knowledge is vital in helping the sector achieve high standards. The letting agent webinars and best practice sessions run throughout the year and we will let you know what’s coming up so that you can see if there is a topic that interests you or that will help with your own development.

The importance of training

Compliance

As a letting agent in Scotland, you are legally required to complete 15 hours of formal CPD. Our webinars are a great way of doing this in a structured fashion.

Confidence

Staff who regularly complete and commit to professional development will be much more confident in navigating the lettings sector.

Value

Our courses and qualifications can add value to you as an individual, but also to your company itself!
