CQS training from the Professional Development Centre

About our courses

The Law Society’s Professional Development Centre (PDC) has once again been approved to supply Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) training courses for 2019, and our courses are now available for purchase.


In response to member feedback, we have simplified our course format for this year. Each course has also been reviewed by peers, before being submitted to the independent CQS approval process to ensure they meet the necessary standard required for CQS accreditation (SRA competency level 4).

Courses will each take no more than two hours to complete and will be followed by a short assessment. Our courses are modular and you can take them one module at a time if this is more convenient for you.

The list below shows the CQS courses we offer, with details to help you choose the right ones for you.

Each course costs £35 + VAT (£42) per person.

If your organisation has more than 16 members of staff who need to take the update courses, you can take advantage of our capped rate of £1,100 + VAT (£1,320) for unlimited access to the training.

If you need further help to choose the right courses, check our FAQs or contact us at pdc@lawsociety.org.uk or 020 7320 5978.
