CIH Level 3 Certificate in Housing Maintenance & Asset Management
Updated: Feb 19
Upkeep Training are now an approved provider of the CIH Level 3 Certificate in Housing Maintenance and Asset Management. This is a new qualification and replaces the CIH Level 3 Certificate in Housing Maintenance.
This course and qualification, equivalent to A Level standard, provides a knowledge of the housing construction, maintenance, asset management, KPIs and health and safety. It also looks at these areas in context with the wider housing environment. Starting in September 2019, it takes place over a five month period. There will be one full day session a month except for November, when there are two.
This qualification is ideal for maintenance professionals working in the housing sector, as well as non trades staff from a customer service or housing management background who may wish to move into a maintenance or asset management role. It will be particularly useful for housing associations that like to see their staff grow and move to new and varied roles in their organisation. It is also an ideal training opportunity for tenant liaison officers in private housing companies, as it helps develop an understanding of maintenance and asset management issues.
There are four modular units to the certificate, each of which requires completion of an assignment. The induction and second course dates cover Professional Practice Skills for Housing, while the third and fourth deal with Housing Construction and Maintenance. The fifth date is Accessible and Adaptable Housing, then the course concludes with Health and Safety Awareness for Housing Management and Maintenance.
The CIH (Chartered Institute of Housing) is the UK’s largest body for housing professionals and has over 21,000 members. It has been in existence for over one hundred years and was granted a Royal Charter in 1984. Qualifications awarded by this body add a great deal of credibility to your organisation.
Upkeep Training will be running this course in central London, with the cost at £1450 plus VAT per person. If you have more than eight staff attending, please contact us as a special rate may be available.
