This is an industry-accredited program for professionals working in strata management or professionals in the property sector looking to move into strata management.
Designed in partnership with Strata Community Australia, the Certificate IV in Strata Community Management qualification reflects the role of those involved in providing management services for strata communities. In most situations, the individual will work independently but may operate as part of a strata community management team.
Students will learn about strata schemes and communities, the functions and duties of a manager including the administration and facilitation of meetings, handling strata funds and reporting on financial activities, administering insurance, implementing contracts of appointment and the ability to read plans.
Through the program students will learn the importance of legislation and its application, effective communication with committees and other key stakeholders.
Once completed, the candidate will have a good understanding of handling a portfolio of strata titled properties and be able to work effectively as a strata manager.
The program is offered as an online learning qualification hosted on the RMIT University learning management system. Interactive, digitally enhanced resources are supported with structured facilitator-led mentoring and individual guidance. The learning resources will be focused on strata management.
Students are required to be working in the industry, ideally with more than 12 months' experience, as assessment tasks are both work-based projects, or industry operations.
The program learning resources and assessment requirements have been developed to offer students the option of fast-tracking the four themes and or individual courses within each theme. Students wishing to fast-track the program are expected to have been working for two or more years in the industry.
