We also wanted to start with the foundation of the industry, and that is the Real Estate (Dealers and Developers) Act,” she noted.“The aim of CPD is to keep the skills and knowledge of our practitioners current with both the legislation and international best practices. Both these courses meet those criteria, especially with the new terrorism-prevention requirements passed this year,” she added.The courses, which will be offered at the Real Estate Training Institute in Kingston, constitute two hours each (four in total) of the required eight hours of mandatory courses for practitioners.An additional 12 hours of optional courses are required for a total of 24 hours every two years.Mrs. Watson-Garrick said the Real Estate Board is “examining how best certain courses could be grouped into one-day out-of-town sessions, for example by county or region. This would reduce the time and cost for professionals outside of Kingston and St. Andrew”.

It has been reported that NBC is teaming up with Cosmopolitan to create a new scripted series. The show will be based on the lives of the writers, editors and executives at the brand. Cosmo editor-in-chief, Joanna Coles will serve as executive producer. As with Cosmo’s readers, the characters’ struggles involve balancing family with career, finding your identity and, according to the logline, “having the most mind blowing orgasms,” Variety reports. The new script is in potential development for the 2016-17 season and will be co-produced by Holly Whidden, director of editorial brand strategy for Hearst Magazines. Writer, Sarah Watson brought the untitled Universal Television project to light. She’s under an overall deal with the studio and was an executive producer on NBC’s “Parenthood.” Watson will also serve as an executive producer on the Cosmo show. With Coles’ full involvement, the former editor of Marie Claire is the inspiration for the fictional series. The drama is not the first Cosmo-based series to be developed by NBC. Last year, writer/director Lesley Headland wrote a comedy script, inspired by the women’s magazine. Coles produced that project as well.
