CIH Accredited Certificate in Housing – Dublin

Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH UK) Accredited

[UK Level 3, Equivalent to NFQ Level 5*] Blended Learning Course

This course explores all areas of housing and the qualification aims to develop the skills and knowledge of people working in a front line housing capacity, housing activists and housing campaigners who wish to gain a qualification in housing. This qualification is also ideal if you want to expand your skill set or progress your career further, perhaps into a managerial role.

Achievement at NFQ level 5 equivalent reflects the ability to identify and use relevant understanding, methods and skills to complete tasks and address problems that, while well defined, have a measure of complexity. It includes taking responsibility for initiating and completing tasks and procedures as well as exercising autonomy and judgement within limited parameters. It also reflects awareness of different perspectives or approaches within an area of study or work.
