Deposit protection scheme, SafeDeposits Scotland, has announced that seven of its members of staff have been awarded an ARLA Propertymark qualification.
The Residential Letting and Property Management course is the same taken by many letting agents across Scotland. The course builds on the individuals’ significant existing knowledge and gives the seven SafeDeposits Scotland staff a clear understanding of the industry and the framework the scheme operates in.
The seven staff members who were awarded the qualification are: Fraser Johnston; Carol Bradburn; Allan MacDonald; Paula Guthrie; Barbara Saunders; Amy Gardner; Mike Smith.
Victoria Smith, chief operating officer at SafeDeposits Scotland, said: “I’m really pleased for our colleagues who – through their desire to provide the very best levels of service – have worked hard and achieved industry-recognised qualifications.
“We selected this ARLA Propertymark course for a number of reasons, not least its in-depth coverage, thorough syllabus and the training sessions available to assist our team.
“The team now have an even deeper understanding of the pressures that letting agents face, helping us to improve the service we provide.”
Daryl McIntosh, strategic development manager, Scotland and Northern Ireland, at ARLA Propertymark, said: “As one of the partners of SafeDeposits Scotland, we are delighted at ARLA Propertymark that the SafeDeposits team have shown such commitment towards achieving their Residential Letting and Property Management qualifications. I congratulate all of those who have achieved the award.”
