We have asked one of our past students a few questions…
Rudolf Willemse Rudolf Willemse, portfolio manager at Pro Admin.
Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I live in Pretoria and have been working in the property industry for 7 years. I started working as a letting agent, where I became involved with sectional title schemes. I am currently employed as a portfolio manager at Pro Admin, managing 30 body corporate schemes.

What was your motivation for enrolling in the Paddocks courses you have completed?
My main focus was to obtain more knowledge of the Sectional Titles Act, and through this, to be able to deliver quality service and advice to owners of sectional title units. I also needed to understand some issues with reference to the Act.
What did you enjoy about the courses?
The material provided was sufficient and user friendly. The venue was well organized and the facilitator definitely knew what he was talking about. The workshop was handled professionally and at the same time it was fun and enjoyable. I especially enjoyed the group sessions, to hear the opinions of other students and the challenges we all face everyday in this environment.
How have these courses helped you?
I have done two courses to date:

UCT Sectional Title Development Course
This course was invaluable to me and gave me better insight with reference to developers and the Act. Dealing with developers and new developments, this course really helped me with issues in getting started with the management of these schemes.
UCT (Law@Work) Sectional Title Scheme Management Course
The intensive study of the Sectional Title Act and understanding makes my daily work and management of schemes much easier. The course pointed out important issues and case studies that are relevant to the daily management of schemes.
Any additional comments?
I will strongly advise every owner and person who is in contact with a sectional title scheme to take part in these courses.
