We have a Responsibility
As we continue to monitor COVID-19, WCPT remain committed to professional education, personally delivered, for the WA real estate industry. The Australian government is currently encouraging us all to reduce our social interactions in order to limit the spread of COVID-19. To date, only gatherings that exceed 500 people have been banned; however, we recognise that as an organisation that is responsible for gathering a large number of real estate industry representative’s in one room, we have a responsibility to make sure we take whatever measures possible to protect the health of everyone. At this stage, our training events will continue as scheduled, with a change to the training environment that allows us to adhere to social distancing practices (including desk layout, student access to digital materials and individual, single-use catering). However, because the situation and public health advice is changing rapidly, we are planning alternate scenarios to allow us to continue to deliver training, should they be needed. We will provide our clients with advice of any changes as soon as we are able to.
Coming to a WCPT session? Bring along your tablet or laptop to access course materials digitally and reduce the contact required with others. Or, pack your own pen and pad.
Reducing Physical Contact
As much as we are always pleased to see you, we will not be shaking hands or hugging. We ask you to please keep a respectful distance from others when visiting the WCPT office or attending a WCPT session. To reduce physical contact, it is our strong preference that all work be submitted digitally. If you are studying with us, you will know this is easy to achieve via our realplace learning management system. If you do need to submit a paper-based assessment, we will ask that you pop it into a box where we will collect it after any lurking germs have expired – same goes for feedback sheets at CPD sessions. We will also implement video-based calls to complete observation and interview-based assessments.
Feeling like you would prefer to study online in your own space? Our programs are available online, using high quality video that puts our real estate experts in the room with you – completely germ free. If you have purchased a WCPT program and would prefer to transfer to an online study stream, simply give us a call. And if you are yet to schedule your training for the year, jump on over to our online store to purchase CPD, or enrol yourself or your people in our game-changing video-based Diploma or Registration course.
Things are Changing
The COVID-19 environment is an extremely complex one that is changing daily. We are doing our best to make decisions in the face of this complexity in order to continue to deliver outstanding and necessary training to the real estate industry – but we are not experts, and will move quickly to heed the advice of authorities when it is provided. We know you are facing just as much complexity in your own businesses, and thank you for your flexibility and understanding.
We are relying on you
Protecting our clients, students and staff is an absolute priority for WCPT. To achieve this, we are relying on you as much as we are relying on ourselves: stay home if you are unwell, get those hands soapy clean, and direct any sneezes or coughs into your inner elbow. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns, and thank you for continuing to support us.
