About the program:

Certificate IV in Social Housing (CHC42215) is a nationally accredited qualification will provide foundation skills and knowledge in:

  • understanding the community housing workplace,
  • working with tenants and understanding their needs, and
  • assessing and managing property maintenance and asset development.

Scheduled during work hours, training is delivered by industry and teaching experts with specialist knowledge and skills in the community housing sector. All trainers currently work in industry, hold a diploma or higher-level qualification in their relevant field, and a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.

Both paid employment and training are for a 12-month period, with support provided in the workplace and throughout the course by dedicated Student Support Advisors, Mentors, Trainers and Work Placement Coordinators. Trainers will also work one-on-one with participants who require extra assistance to ensure the concepts and knowledge required are understood.
