CEA knows what’s up, man. 

They implement these enhancements to help property agents improve and prepare for what’s coming.

Raising the Professionalism of Property Agents

Have you heard of digital transformation? 

It’s striking the real estate industry like lighting sia. 

Our property agents and agencies need to upgrade themselves, understand? 

They must use technology more and more for better estate agency work.

Consumers like us also expect higher professional standards and better service delivery by property agents.

To reach these goals, CEA will raise the CPD (Continuing Professional Development) requirement and reconfigure the CPD framework with Structured Learning (SL) and Self-directed Learning (SDL).

Enhancing the Quality of CPD Training

Do you think learning doesn’t have fun and quality? 

Think again! CEA wants to improve the learning experience for property agents. 

Tighter accreditation criteria, a more stringent audit framework, and better course content will improve CPD training.

Plus, they will allow agents to submit course feedback directly to CEA and publish it on the website. 

This helps agents make better decisions and motivates course providers to improve themselves.

Promoting Continuous Learning Mindset

Hey, listen up! Learning never stops, lah. 

Agents must always improve and try to give more outstanding service to their clients. 

That means they need more advanced and in-depth courses. 

Mr Lim Chee Hwee, Executive Director, CEA, said, “These measures underscore CEA’s commitment to develop the professionalism and resilience of property agents and improve the quality of CPD training.”

CEA wants to work with higher learning institutes and real estate agency industry associations to enhance CPD course quality and offerings.
