A new Training Academy which aims to help landlords, agents and property professionals seeking additional support has been launched by the Residential Landlords Association (RLA) this week.

The academy will offer a range of online courses showcased on a custom-built system which offers interactive eLearning content to help those working in the rental sector stay abreast of legal complexities.

There are three new course programmes: one is specifically aimed at letting agents, one at landlords and one covering Houses in Multiple Occupation.

Agents will also have the opportunity to buy courses for their staff in bulk.

The RLA's training manager, Kitty Speakman, said: "With eLearning people can study at a time and place that suits them, and do not need to take time out of their schedule to attend.

"And of course, lower overheads mean that we are able to offer these courses at very competitive prices.

"The introduction of the new system will make training with us easier, faster and more enjoyable, with the rebranded pages also designed to be easier on the eye.”

The RLA is broadcasting a webinar on the new system on Thursday, September 6.
