Sapoa sets up prop­erty train­ing cour­ses for staff

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - PROPERTY -

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.
