Real Estate Agents Authority Approved Continuing
Education Provider (REAAACE Provider)
Crockers has been approved by the Real Estate Agents Authority
(REAA) as Continuing Education provider. Only two independent
companies within New Zealand were approved and we are very pleased
to be one of them.
What does this mean?
The REAA has introduced a new practice rule, which will come
into effect from 1 January 2012 which requires all licensees (Real
Estate Agents or Property Managers) to complete a set amount of
continuing education each year.
All licensees will need to demonstrate that they have completed
the continuing education requirements in order to renew their
licence (from 2013 on).
Continuing education has two parts, verifiable and
non-verifiable education and licensees must complete both parts
Ten hours of verifiable education: This is
education in relation to complying with the Act, Regulations and
Rules. This will be delivered by an approved provider. The
verifiable continuing education topic for 2012 is the Professional
Conduct and Client Care Rules, with a focus on disclosure.
Ten hours of non-verifiable education: This
includes conferences, in house training, personal professional
development and other industry-based training.
Crockers agree with the REAA in that, setting the Professional
Conduct and Client Care Rules as the topic for the first year of
continuing education will help reinforce the purpose and content of
the Rules and help licensees to comply.
Disclosure is an important issue for those involved in buying
and selling property and is vital to help protect buyers and
Crockers is proud to be a part of this learning process. We feel
that this is a testament to the 'knowledge bank' of information
which we hold as a company through our staff. Our policy of
regularly sharing our knowledge within the property industry, the
wider community, and our clients across Property Management, Body
Corporate and Property Sales - we feel, was a huge contributing
factor in our being approved as a Continuing Education
