Landlord training

We work closely with other organisations and partners to offer training for landlords within the private rental sector to support them in applying legal standards and best practices.

Each training course has a limited number of places so please make sure that you attend all of the training you have signed up for. 

If you have booked onto a training course and cannot attend, please cancel your booking instead of not turning up. This will allow someone else to take your place.
