NALS Training hits milestone with 500th Foundation Lettings Course learner

19th September 2018

NALS is celebrating the 500th candidate to complete its Foundation Lettings Course

Moira Devlin of Lowther Homes, in Scotland, was the 500th learner, completing the Foundation Lettings Course (Scotland).

NALS offers three versions of the Foundations Lettings Course, for England, Scotland and Wales, depending on where agents operate. Each one offers flexible learning for candidates, allowing them to learn and take their tests online rather than having to attend a dedicated testing centre. Candidates like Moira Devlin who successfully complete their course receive an NCFE certificate, and if they work for a NALS Firm can use the designation, ‘NALS Qualified’*.

For agents undertaking the Scottish or Welsh Foundation Lettings Course, both meet Government and licensing training requirements in those countries (for Rent Smart Wales and the Scottish Register of Letting Agents). The deadline for Scottish agents to join the new Register is swiftly approaching and NALS is seeing many taking advantage of the online training to allow them to become compliant in time for the 30th September deadline.

Moira Devlin, Letting Manager at Lowther Homes, said: “I found the course really flexible. I was able to fit my learning around my busy work schedule. The online modules were split into manageable chunks which meant I could dip in and out when I had time. It’s also really useful to be able to go back in and refresh my memory on a topic if I need to.  The course was really informative and full of great tips and information.”

Isobel Thomson, Chief Executive of NALS said: “The Private Rented Sector is constantly changing and evolving, which is why it’s so important for professionals to keep up to speed through training and professional development. Our Foundation Lettings Courses are tailored specifically for busy agents and the areas they work in. We’re very proud to see such excellent take up. Congratulations to Moira, and we look forward to the next 500!”

*The qualification is accredited by NCFE, a national Awarding Organisation.
