Sapoa sets up property training courses for staff
THE SOUTH AFRICAN Property Owners’ Association (Sapoa) recently presented its Introduction to Commercial Property Programme courses at the University of Cape Town and Wits University in Johannesburg.
The course is a milestone for the property association as the accredi- tation will assist member companies to improve staff skills and show a return on training investment through measuring the impact of their training and learning interventions, says Sapoa chief executive, Neil Gopal.
“Sapoa’s first course in introductory property training, the Introduc- tion to Commercial Property Prog r a mme ( I C P P ) , i s s p e c i f i c a l l y aimed at new entrants to the commercial property industry and is a strategic partnership with Wits University and the University of Cape Town. Another new course, Essent i a l C o mmerc i a l P r o p e r t y P r o - gramme (ECPP), has been launched and was almost over-subscribed on opening,” said Gopal.
The courses are recognised by SAQA (the South African Qualifications Authority), which is associated with the Council for Higher Education, which governs all universities in South Africa. Certificates of competency are issued.
