To help raise the standards of the Private Rented Sector (PRS) Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) and Inventory Hive are launching two brand new industry training courses.

Led by Michael Hill of TDS and Richard Abbots of Inventory Hive, the courses guide property professionals through reporting at each stage of a tenancy, making the process as smooth as possible.

Course 1 ‘Pre-tenancy activity and inventory check-in’The first course includes an introduction to inventory check-ins and practical tips for compiling reports.  The session focuses on key vocabulary/terminology and what to include in an inventory report.   

Course 2 ‘Mid-term visits and end of tenancy check-out’The second course focuses on mid-term visits and end of tenancy check-out reports.  The session includes practical guidance on undertaking reports, alongside how reports are approached by an adjudicator when considering deposit deductions.  

Inventory Hive Courses - Inventory accreditation

Alongside these two courses, TDS also run the popular TDS Academy Online, helping property professionals get a real grasp of all things tenancy deposit protection and how to think like an adjudicator.

Delegates who complete both TDS Academy Online courses and TDS and Inventory Hive courses will be awarded with the new ‘TDS Approved Academy Accreditation Logo’ which is valid for 18 months.

“Ensuring that property professionals knowledge net is as wide as it can possibly be is something us and Inventory Hive value greatly. Having a core skillset and understanding of the ever-changing worlds that are tenancy deposit protection and inventories can be the key to avoiding costly deposit disputes” said Michael Hill.
