The Association of Independent Inventory Clerks (AIIC) has announced the details of two new training courses taking place later this year.
The “guidelines for inventory professionals” courses are aimed at new and experienced clerks as well as people interested in entering the industry.
Course content will include extensive coverage of the check in and check out processes, basic legal guidelines, advice on handling tenants, information on tools of the trade, how to handle complaints, the dos and don'ts of inventory updates and much more.
Pat Barber, chair of the AIIC, said: “These are the best recognised training courses in the industry and are open to anyone interested in learning the whole inventory process. They provide the opportunity for clerks to gain membership of the AIIC – the UK’s largest membership organisation – or for any other colleagues or interested parties needing in depth knowledge of the whole inventory process.
“As the private rented sector continues to grow in size and the number of tenants subsequently increases, a detailed inventory will only become more valuable to both tenants as well as landlords and their agents.
“The inventory process can be comprehensive, complex and time consuming and here at the AIIC we would encourage anyone entering the industry to undertake some basic training.”
The first course is taking place on 26 and 27 September, while the second course occurs almost two months later on 14 and 15November.
Taking place at the Hilton Hotel in Bracknell, Berkshire, the courses will run from 9.30am to 4.30pm.
