It also gives confidence to your clients, employers and peers when dealing with someone with the relevant professionals status and experience in the field.
Can I obtain more than one Certification?
There are no restrictions on the number of certifications you can hold, and often Members find it useful to undertake a new certification to help them move into new areas of the property industry.
What are the requirements?
Each certification has it’s own unique requirements, however they all start with Membership and are supported by a curated education pathway to help support your development and ensure you have the tools you need.
