Information on CPD Scheme

Under the Estate Agents (Estate Agency Work) Regulations 2010, every KEO, practising director/partner and salesperson is required to undertake mandatory continuing professional development (CPD) - a minimum of 6 credit hours of learning activities for each CPD cycle, of which at least 3 CPD credit hours must be on core subjects.

New Salespersons are exempted from CPD requirement for the first CPD cycle but will need to comply with the CPD requirement for the next and subsequent CPD cycles.

CPD Cycle

Each CPD cycle spans one year. The CPD cycle for the current year starts from 1 October of the preceding year and ends on 30 September of the current year. E.g. 2014 CPD cycle starts from 1 Oct 2013 and ends on 30 Sep 2014.

CPD credit hours

There is a cap of 2 CPD credit hours for each core activity undertaken, regardless of the number of hours per session. For a full-day course/seminar/lecture/workshop approved to be recognised as core activity, CEA will award a maximum of 2 CPD credit hours per day.
