Enrol in the IRPM's Level 2 Foundation Course in Build to Rent

Build to Rent is maturing into an established and proven sector that is now delivering on its promise of premium quality homes and services. Careers and roles are crystallising into clear pathways. IRPM works closely with the leading players in the sector, who confirmed the time is now right for a new entry level course to benefit on-site, leasing, FM and back-office teams, new entrants, and aspiring building managers.

The IRPM Level 2 Foundation in Build to Rent is an introductory ONLINE course, with a revolutionary focus on the customer, on health and safety and on ethical behaviours as well as the essential technical knowledge of IRPM repute. The course elements, embody the culture and values of our emergent customer focussed and service driven industry, which sets itself apart from the private rented sector of old, while ensuring that the legal and safety basics are properly covered too.

The course has been developed around IRPM’s ‘4 Elements’ of residential property management, which were adopted by Lord Best in his recommendations to government:


  • Technical competence – the bedrock essential knowledge
  • Safety – health and safety is paramount
  • Customer and consumer – a strong focus on the customer and service
  • Ethics and behaviours – professional ethics applies at every level

The IRPM 4 Elements are the foundations for today’s residential property management professional.

This course is ideal for those who:

- have an interest in the build to rent sector and want to understand the foundations of what build to rent management will entail.

- have on-site staff, leasing teams, call centre & back office teams and customer service agents, that would benefit from understanding the foundations of build to rent management and the reasons behind the actions taken and decisions made by property managers. A firm grasp of the build to rent sector means these support teams can be of greater assistance to customers and property management professionals.
