Conveyancing Association announce paralegal training

The Conveyancing Association (CA) have announced a course for paralegals available from today.

The online course is being delivered online through CA’s “The Conveyancing Academy”.

The association say its course has been designed to provide paralegals with “with a basic knowledge of property law and the procedures required to facilitate straightforward conveyancing transactions” and can be taken individually online or in trainer-led seminars with automatic online grading, certification and course-tracking.

The course has 15 modules which run through a conveyancing transaction taking in land law, pre-contract enquiries, searches and exchanges and completion amongst other subjects. Once all 15 modules are completed successfully, delegates receive an overall score and Certificate of Accreditation from the Conveyancing Academy.

Lloyd Davies, Operations Director at the Conveyancing Association, said: “We are extremely pleased to be launching the new Paralegal Course for CA member firms who want to train their staff quickly and thoroughly. This will give firms the opportunity to get their employees up to speed with the conveyancing process, whilst at the same time testing that knowledge to ensure staff are fully aware of all aspects of the work.

“Our aim is to ensure that delegates can work through the course in a variety of ways – it’s a fact of life that different people learn differently, which is why we have a range of online resources as well as downloadable documents that can take them through the course step by step. Not only is this course extremely thorough and accessible but for CA member firms it is also cost-effective – CA members will now pay a discounted rate of £210 per delegate which means each module only costs £14 each; the retail price for non-members is £299 per delegate.

“Plus there is a 10% discount for block purchases of 10 or more delegates. By utilising the Conveyancing Academy framework, we are in a strong position to continue delivering training courses which will meet the learning needs of all our member firms and their staff. The industry should expect further training course launches in the weeks ahead.”
