Managing Agent Accreditation Scheme

SISV Academy together with APFM welcome members of APFM, managing agents, property managers and all other real estate professionals to undertake the course on Certificate in Managing Agent Practice.

This course is specifically developed with the key objective of providing a better understanding of Managing Agent Professional Practice in strata management.  Those who enrol for the course will find it useful as it provides a broad overview of the strata management practice and technical aspects required in managing a strata development.

SISV Academy and APFM are pleased to announce this Online Learning Course on the Certificate in Managing Agent Practice (the “course”) followed the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Association of Property and Facility Managers (APFM) and the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) on 12 February 2020 on the new accreditation scheme for managing agents.

The SISV Academy in partnership with APFM will be conducting the training of the course which will be accredited by the APFM.  The online learning course is provided to you through SISV Academy via the portal https://eLearningHub.sg and we would need you to familiarise yourself with the functions and application of the format and how this course is being conducted.

Registration
Upon your registration of the course, you may commence with any of the 3 modules.  This means you may commence with, say Module 3, followed by Module 4 and completing with Module 2.  It is not necessary for you to commence with Module 2, 3 and 4 in sequence.

However, please note that you will have up to 90 days to complete each module you have selected.  Each module will include MCQ assessment tests, an optional revision class and a date for compulsory class assessment examination.

Extension of Time 
It is important that you note the 90 days period to complete each module you have registered.  You will be alerted twice by our system (10 remaining days and 5 remaining days) before the due date for the completion of the module.  When you are at the last remaining 5 days stage, you must quickly contact our administrator to request for an extension of time to complete the module if this is required by you.

You will be allowed to extend for a further 2 weeks from the expiry date to complete the module.  However, SISV Academy will charge an administrative fee of SGD$20 (excluding GST) for every 2 weeks’ request for the extension.  If you failed to request for the extension of time, you will be automatically logged-out of the system upon expiration of the 90 days period for the module.

Once you are logged out of the system, you need to re-register to take the module if you wish to continue with the course.  A fee of SGD$80 (excluding GST) will be charged by the SISV Academy if you re-register within less than 2 calendar months of the logged-out date and registration fee of SGD$120 (excluding GST) will be payable if re-registration is more than 2 calendar months of the logged-out date.
