The ICSH is now inviting applications for its next delivery of the CIH Certificate in Housing course beginning in January 2022 in partnership with the CIH Housing Academy.
The course is aimed at people working for a number of years in housing either at management level or hoping to move up to management level. It is also aimed at people working in housing who wish to gain a formal housing qualification having gained experience through working in the sector, and professionals wishing to make the move into the social housing sector. The course is a UK Level 4 which is equivalent to an Irish Level 6 on the NFQ.
The course is delivered through blended learning – a combination of teaching days and self-directed learning supported by online resources. Due to the current Covid-19 situation, it is envisaged that class days will initially take place through Zoom based on the public health guidance at the time.
Please find attached the course brochure for the ICSH / CIH Certificate in Housing as well as the course application form.
Please note that as this course is very popular, and places are limited. The closing date for receipt of applications is October 11th. Offers of a place on the course will be made after that date based on applicants who best meet the criteria of who this course is aimed at – people working for a number of years in housing either at management level or hoping to move up to management level or else those who wish to gain a formal housing qualification having gained experience through working in the sector. Course places can only be confirmed on receipt of payment of course fees.
