AIP (Approved Inventory Professional) is an organisation that aims to educate inventory professionals in the requirements of an inventory report from the perspective of both an arbitration service as well as that of a Property Manager, landlord and tenant.
AIP achieves this with both initial training of new clerks, as well as cutting edge training days where our years of industry knowledge are passed on, ensuring a clerk is aware of precisely how to layout an inventory report clearly, with all information included. Incorporated in this state of the art training is also direction on how to place any liability, as well as education on the procedures and dialogue with tenants, landlords and representatives when at a property; to ensure that the language used at this stage is correct, ensuring all parties are aware of the processes.
AIP CLERKS ARE TRAINED TO THE HIGHEST INVENTORY STANDARD, WITH A GENUINE UNDERSTANDING OF THE INTRICATE REQUIREMENTS OF THE PROCESS AS A WHOLE, SETTING THEM APART FROM A STANDARD INVENTORY CLERK
I gained and refreshed a lot of knowledge on all three of the AIP courses. Each one explored different parts of the inventory and letting process giving detailed current information, and the ever-changing rules and regulations. The instructor held a great Q&A at the end of the day which was a great time for the group to share best practices and discuss any tips and tricks they have and use.
As the AIP courses are on going and current. I send all of my existing and new clerks on all 3 courses. From a training point of view, they add so much value to a clerks knowledge and confidence when out in the field. The yearly update installs this further and arms them with the tools and know how to do the job in line with the high AIP standards
In our industry everyone recognises that an eye for detail is of the utmost importance. The ongoing AIP courses that certainly keep skill well-honed, are an excellent opportunity to keep up with current legislation and offer an excellent platform to exchange ideas and views.
