Registration  for non-verifiable training

Three courses are available to choose from when you register. More information about the courses is below.

1. Apply Knowledge of Ethics and Industry Best Practice Principals to Real Estate Agency work 

Real estate course MOZ

In this course we are mainly concerned with ethics as applied to real estate practice and we will begin with an overview of the concepts of moral and prudential ethics.

We will then cover ethics in business and consider how ethical principles are applied in a practical sense.

Finally, we will cover illegal acts and discuss what the possible consequences of unethical behaviour may be, including those laid down by legislation and rules.

Although this a non-verifiable course it is mandatory to work in an ethical manner that aligns to your agency's principles and the law.

 

2. Managing Trust Accounts

Real Estate Course 2

This module is primarily about handling money belonging to your clients which occurs when you collect the sale deposits from purchasers and rents from tenants.

Consequently, you have a duty of care greater than that applicable to your own finances.

Such money is known as trust money and it must be distinguished from monies received by you in your capacity as a licensee operating the business of a real estate agent.

We will explore the handling of trust money according to best practice and law within a New Zealand environment.

 

3. Finance for non-Financial Managers

 

3. Introduction to Project Management
