As part for the enhancement of each broker to serve the clients fully with ease, completeness, excellence, and honesty, the Continuing Professional Education (CPE) has come to its accomplishments. This is required for all the brokers to be, to finish all the 24 units in CPE. This is a must to all of those licensed brokers aspirants, before taking the exam. Well, it is just to say, “Attendance for every topic to be discussed is a MUST!” Just recently, the REBAP staff had once conducted a seminar for all the licensed brokers in the Philippines mainly here in Cagayan de Oro, last Saturday, August 21-22, 2010 in Budgetel, Corrales Street. It was participated by few personalities in diverging professions. There were Architects, lawyers, Businessmen, Realtors, and Appraisers, who are licensed brokers. On the first day, program started at 8 o’ clock in the morning and ended up at 9 in the evening.
The day was done with the series of lectures as well as review for those who were done with the topics discussed. The sessions below will show the topics with its corresponding speakers. The seminar covered not only the rules, acts and duties only of the brokers. It also talked about the development of the City of Cagayan de Oro and its prospect projects within its vicinity. Thus, it shows that our city is having its dynamic functions, vision and mission, and its prosperity as well, which benefited to every Kagay-anons. One thing which caught my attention is the emphasized facts by the Housing and Land Use Regulatory Board (Northern Mindanao Region), regarding the bases of how they would approve every developer’s project. That was so substantial, that every participant had absorbed and understood those bases well.
