Kippie is a 29-year-old man, soon to be married and a father of two, originally from Zimbabwe. He is employed by the Regent Body Corporate as an onsite building supervisor at an up-market sectional title residential property. He has two years of working experience in this property industry – yet he still learned many new things from the Paddocks courses he has taken.
His career started when he was a security guard and access controller in one of the residential complexes that his boss was managing. He gives credit to Derek Varkevisser and Bernard Nel for giving him the opportunity to improve and widen his skills further – if it wasn’t for them, he wouldn’t be where he is today.
Kippie has successfully completed three Paddocks courses: the University of Cape Town (Law@Work) Sectional Title Scheme Management course in 2010, the Sectional Title Bookkeeping course in 2010 and the Home Owners’ Association Management course more recently this year. He learned much more than he ever expected. The UCT (Law@Work) Sectional Title Scheme Management course was a real eye opener.
His experience on the UCT (Law@Work) Sectional Title Scheme Management course has been very positive. Kippie wanted to be more knowledgeable about his job and, in so doing, acquired a reputation of being good at what he does. In that way, his estate will grow and he will provide an efficient and professional level of service to the people he serves. He’s already implementing the things he learned from the courses on his scheme.
One of the most interesting things Kippie learned from Paddocks was studying online – being able to work at his own pace at home according to a convenient schedule, without having to incur the cost and inconvenience of traveling to classes at fixed times and submitting the assignments from work. The courses were very well set out and presented – everything was logically sequenced. The course conveners were quick to respond and extremely helpful and accommodating at all times.
Kippie is extremely devoted to educating himself and improving his skills and looking forward to studying again with Paddocks in the near future. He devotes most of his time managing the body corporate building and maintenance issues.
