Strata management is increasingly complex, and providing professionals with appropriate training to upskill is a priority. These days, lifts, basements, air conditioning and heating systems, complex fire safety systems, gyms, pools, saunas and rooftop gardens each come with their own rules, regulations, maintenance schedules and specialised maintenance and repair requirements. Even older or smaller complexes are much more complicated to manage, as new legislation covering accessibility, energy efficiency, insurance, pool and sauna usage and waste management, among others, add to the intricacy of managing a strata scheme. The Strata Management (Diploma of Property (Agency Management)) - Professional Stream will provide already highly skilled practitioners the opportunity to ensure their knowledge and training stay current and in line with new developments in the field.

This project was completed on the 27th of April, 2022.

A working group consisting of industry practitioners and led by Alisha Fisher, CEO of the Strata Community Association and member of the Property Services IRC has developed four units of competency for addition, as a professional stream, to the Diploma of Property (Agency Management).

This stream will reflect the role of Senior Strata Managers and Strata Agency Principals who apply knowledge compliance requirements and ethical standards and who are responsible and accountable for the work of others.

The requirements for the completion of the Diploma of Property (Agency Management) will remain unchanged for those wishing to study for the purpose of working in the real-estate industry. The new specialist stream is being developed specifically for those working or intending to work in the strata management industry.

This project has considered the specific functions associated with managing strata communities, including assessing and implementing strata community management agreements, analysing and commenting on management reports prepared for strata communities, life cycle asset management plans, and implementing maintenance programs for managed properties.

Licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to strata community management in some States. Relevant state and territory regulatory authorities should be consulted to confirm those requirements.

As CPP51119 Diploma of Property (Agency Management) is technical undergoing a major change, it will be recoded to CPP51122 and have the specialist stream added.

The Case for Endorsement has been submitted for the AISC February 2022 meeting.
