A new certification program has been aimed at raising the industry standards for property management training.
The iiPM (ireviloution intelligence Property Manager) is an international property management certification that recognises individuals with advanced levels of ‘practical’ training.
Jo-Anne Oliveri, director of ireviloution said iiPM certification is a positive step forward for industry training standards as well as the level of service offered to clients.
“Property managers officially become iiPM certified after successfully completing and passing all eight online ireviloution intelligence International Property Management Academy operational training programs,” she said.
“These operational training programs teach students the practical side of property management, unlike most training courses which only focus on legislation.”
According to Ryan Weekes, director of Australian National Properties Bundaberg, having a team of iiPM certified property managers give his agency a competitive edge.
“This is an outstanding qualification for our team to have been accredited with, giving us a huge step up on our competitors,” he said.
“The certification puts our clients at ease, knowing our team is certified and trained by a reputable worldwide company, and certainly gives our team much more confidence when presenting to a landlord knowing they have the skills and knowledge to conduct their role confidently and professionally.”
