Real estate education to get more structured
Today, with increased regulatory vigilance and the passing of Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act 2016 (RERA, in short), as well as real estate companies acquiring scale, getting more professional and larger players coming into this space, there is a need to educate real estate professionals and ancillary service providers.
Mumbai-based Real Estate Management Institute (REMI) addresses this need by providing certification programmes, executive courses and customised training workshops targeted at the real estate industry.
Skilling India’s real estate sector
REMI, part of The Annet Group, was established in 2014 to reduce the growing skill gap in the real estate industry by providing an international curriculum with global best practices to individuals in India. “The Indian real estate market has always been very fragmented and unorganised as the businesses are largely owner-driven,” says Shubika Bilkha, Business Head, REMI.
Bilkha explains the broad segments addressed by REMI as
1) Specialised professionals, which include valuers, quantity surveyors, facility managers, property managers and sustainable development experts;
2) Core professionals, which include engineers, architects and planners;
3) Non-core professionals, which include management, business administration, marketing, sales, lawyers and more; and finally
4)Real estate service providers, which include the areas of consulting, brokering and other ancillary services.
