Inventory Certification

Inventory Certification




Inventory Certification allows professional Inventory Clerks to provide a vital property assessment service to the Private Rental Sector. By becoming Stroma-certified you can create and deliver accurate inventories required for the sale and rental of properties.

Annual Certification £0*. Inventory Report £5.00
All quoted prices exclude VAT. The Inventory Report fee is payable per report created within the software application. *Applicants must first undergo an Inventory assessment either via our Inventory Training course or APEL assessment route. These incur additional fees and further information can be found on our training page.


What is the Inventory Certification Scheme?

Inventory Certification helps certified Inventory Clerks to deliver accurate inventories to a professional, competent standard. After completing a one-day training course, membership to the Stroma Certification Inventory scheme is free. All certified Inventory Clerks are checked to make sure they are competent before they join the scheme. Members are fully audited to maintain these high standards throughout the course of their membership to ensure customer confidence.

Why join our Inventory Certification Scheme?

Stroma Certification provides members with the experience and tools to help you achieve market advantage in the Private Rental Sector. All members of our scheme are provided with logos and professional body recognition with which to promote your business to customers. You’ll also receive support from a dedicated technical support team. Our staff are available from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday to answer your queries and provide telephone and email assistance.

Membership includes full insurance for all assessors to ensure you can undertake inventory activities in client properties. Insurance is provided on a ‘pay per click’ basis so it’s cost-effective for all members.
