Build to Rent Qualifications and Courses

What is Build to Rent?

Build to Rent (BTR) is one of the fastest growing sectors in the UK housing market. Build to Rent has emerged in response to soaring demand for quality rental housing, with new developments reflecting the changing needs and priorities of modern renters.

For property managers, this emerging and fast-growing sector opens doors to new ways in which to manage estates and blocks. As the leading professional body for residential property management, we identified the need to tailor our courses and qualifications to cater for this booming sector.

Our build to rent qualifications are the leading nationally accredited qualifications for the sector, we offer both introductory courses and advance level qualifications. 

All of the courses and qualifications have been developed around IRPM’s ‘4 Elements’ of residential property management: Technical, Health and Safety, Customer and Consumer and Ethics and Behaviours. These 4 Elements are the foundations for any residential property management professional.
