Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Framework

CPD is one of the key components of CEA’s regulatory framework to achieve higher professional standards of the real estate agency industry. The objective of the mandatory CPD framework is to ensure that Key Executive Officers (KEOs) and salespersons have the skillsets and critical competencies to carry out their duties effectively. It is integral in ensuring that KEOs and salespersons continue to keep their knowledge and skills current with industry and regulatory developments.

From 1 October 2019 onwards, every KEO, practising director/partner and salesperson will be required to undertake a minimum of 6 credits per annual CPD cycle, of which four of these credits must be from courses related to Professional Competencies and two credits must be from courses related to Generic Competencies. The minimum of 6 credits is also a renewal licensing/registration condition stipulated in the Estate Agents (Licensing and Registration) Regulations 2010. Failure to comply will affect the registration status of KEO, practising director/partner and salesperson and may lead to their removal from the Public Register.
