Course overview

There is no doubt that the prevalence of illicit drugs within residential and rental properties is an ever-growing issue for the real estate industry.

This highly engaging session has been specifically developed to assist real estate agents and property managers in identifying potential illicit drug activity within properties which they manage, to equip them with the knowledge to understand and identify actual risk vs perceived risk, and how to manage these risks.

by Paul Newell and Keith Norman, two of Australia's most recognised illicit drug and drug manufacture experts with more than 40 years combined operational and hands-on experience in illicit drugs, drug contamination, clandestine drug manufacture, forensics and law enforcement.

This session is both practical, evidence based and candid, and has never before been available to real estate or property management professionals in Australia.

This specialised training course also meets the requirements for seven REIWA Accreditation points. For more information, please visit the REIWA accreditation page
