NRLA training: New courses launched

The NRLA Training Academy has added two new courses to its offering this new year, shining a spotlight on renovations and property auctions.

The two courses have been devised by Henry Davis MBA, a property trader of over 30 years, and offer practical advice on both buying properties and getting them ready for tenants, covering everything from honing your valuations skills to where to source your electrical appliances.

The Property Auction course is available as part of our online eLearning offer, with Property Refurbishment held in an eClassroom.

Henry said: "I hope these new courses will make a tangible difference to anybody investing or developing, to help them understand the realities of the property business."

Property Refurbishment: eClassroom 

Property refurbishments can be problematic, with issues with builders, project management and overspends all commonplace.

The Property Refurbishment course includes tips on how to reduce project risks, add value, improve design, increase insulation, and accomplish a professional relationship between you and your builder.

It will include a deep dive into the common reasons why many projects fail, how to source property not available on the open market and carry out accurate valuations.

The course also looks at post refurbishment: interior design, furnishings and fit-outs.

The online virtual classroom courses will be held on Friday February 27 and Tuesday, April 20. Both will run from 10am-4pm.

They are priced at £158 for members and £197 for non-members. For more information and to book click here.
