New Online Course


Course overview


‘Inspecting a Property’ is a course provided online by Upkeep Training that teaches those working in the housing and property management sector how to carry out straightforward inspections of properties, whether they be occupied or empty.  


The course covers effective questioning techniques, how to spot typical defects so that they are documented and reported correctly. It also shows how to organise the property inspection process and make sure you comply with health and safety guidelines.


By taking the course online, you are able to reduce travel time and costs while still having all the benefits of the training. All course documents are emailed to you for download made available to you and numbers remain limited so that we can still allow interaction between and amongst trainers and attendees.  They are also structured for comfort and refreshment breaks.  


Scheduled courses are delivered by Zoom and if your organisation wants a bespoke session, we can use Microsoft Teams if you prefer.
