Training, publications and support


Ensuring that all relevant persons undertake training is a key element of the Conveyancing Quality Scheme. However, the way in which CQS training will be delivered is changing.

In the future third party training providers will have the opportunity to deliver the Core and Update training modules. It is our intention that these new modules will be delivered in 2018. Until then there is no Core or Update training for any staff members to complete.

However, if you are a new SRO you will have to complete the Role of the SRO training module within six months of your firm joining CQS, but you will only have to complete this training module once. You may also like to view the CQS introductory webinar

SROs and other relevant members of staff may also like to complete the Core Practice Management Standards training course. This is optional but has been designed to help you understand the management standards expected of CQS member accreditation firms.


We have produced two publications to help you understand the Law Society's 'preferred practice' for conveyancing transactions and to ensure you comply with the core practice management standards required for CQS accreditation:
