Trainings for brokers stepped up


    Advocacy group A Better Real Estate Philippines (ABREP) which has been pushing for amendments to the more-than-decade-old Real Estate Service Act or RESA Law is stepping up training programs for brokers and facilitate their accreditation with the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC).

    In a statement, ABREP president Anthony Gerard Leuterio said the group in partnership with key developers, provided more than 2,000 new real estate salespersons with free brokerage training programs for them to earn credit units for PRC accreditation.

    ABREP supports the digitalization of the industry to enhance training, networking events, marketing and rental opportunities, social responsibility, and the personal growth of its members.

    As of March 10, eight batches of new real estate salespersons have availed of their free training for entry level posts for their credit unit certifications.

    ABREP has been pushing for RESA amendments that will expedite accreditation processes to consider changes in technology, allowing greater educational attainment by including the K-12 curriculum, and opening access to far-flung communities to licensed brokers.
