CPD Residential Property Management
If you are a Class 1 or a Class 2 agent, you are now required to complete 3 hours of elective CPD. With Elective CPD there are a broad range of topics that can be chosen from the list issued by NSW Fair Trading that relate to agent and agency best practice.
With the CPD year now being from 23 March to 22 March each and every year, you can complete this training at any time during the CPD year.
It is important to note that your completion of CPD in no longer connected with the renewal date of your licence.
The Residential Property Management CPD program that has been developed by ACOP for this 2020/21 CPD year focused on the following issues
- Tenancy laws for victims of domestic violence
- New residential tenancy laws from the 23rd March 2020 onwards
- Duty of care to tenant – repairs and maintenance case study
- Tenancy Databases
- Present at Tribunals (NCAT)
This means that it is mandatory that you complete a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program every year in order to renew your authority to practice. All CPD Property Management courses offered by ACOP meet the criteria set by NSW Fair Trading for elective CPD topics.
Once the world has moved on from the current COVID-19 pandemic, ACOP will again be conducting its very popular face-to-face CPD seminars throughout New South Wales. In the meantime, all topics will be offered online and through interactive webinars.
Customised and in-house courses are also available for groups of 6 or more. Please contact us if you have specific topic needs and our trainers can come to your office to conduct your CPD course at a time that suits you and your staff. Naturally, these courses are also available via interactive webinar, which is terrific for remote locations and also smaller agencies.

ACOP’s courses are developed and delivered by current industry professionals and solicitors. This means that students are able to benefit from the analysis of real cases and scenarios and receive the most up to date knowledge of legislation and industry best practices.
The courses conducted by ACOP either in face-to-face mode, through the ACOP online student portal, or via interactive webinars, all provide an opportunity to network with other agents and agencies and to share ideas within our best practice framework.
