Project: Strata Community Management
Case for Endorsement
A Case for Change has been developed by the Property Services IRC focussing on the relevance and demand for qualifications in strata community management. The Case takes into account:
- regulatory changes (both to licensing for strata managers and related legislative change for the built environment); as well as
- growing demand for skilled strata managers to meet the needs of increasing urban density and residential property development resulting in burgeoning numbers of strata schemes requiring management.
- SUPPORTS the deletion of CPP30416 Certificate III in Strata Community Management
- PROPOSES further industry consultation on the deletion of CPP50316 Diploma in Strata Community Management
- PROPOSES the formal review and strengthening of CPP40516 Certificate IV in Strata Community Management
At the June 2020 meeting of the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) a directive was issued to the IRC to delete the following qualifications from the National Register unless a valid reason for retaining them is provided:
- CPP30416 Certificate III in Strata Community Management
- CPP50316 Diploma in Strata Community Management
The Case for Change is expected to be reviewed by the AISC at their meeting in October. If approved, it will move to a project to develop a Case for Endorsement.
Consultation on Draft 1
A technical working group comprising industry representatives from all states and territories has been established to review the technical content of the strata community management qualifications and units of competency. In line with the Case for Change for the project, the group has focused efforts on the CPP40516 Certificate IV in Strata Community Management and associated units of competency. The CPP30416 Certificate III in Strata Community Management will be deleted, and retention or otherwise of the CPP50316 Diploma of Strata Community Management is a matter for future consideration.
The technical working group has met on several occasions to look closely at the functions, skills and knowledge covered by the Certificate IV qualification to update and improve occupational outcomes for industry. This work has resulted in changes to the packaging arrangements to better align the qualification with contemporary practices and emerging skills needs in strata community management.
Units of competency identified as fundamental to the occupation have been significantly updated and modified to ensure they reflect specific strata community management requirements. Remaining units have been marked for deletion as they duplicated units already updated or functions covered by cross-industry units or were no longer relevant to the role. A mapping document summarising the current status of units of competency can be found in the downloads below.
Draft 1 of the qualification and units are now available for feedback until 15th February 2021. Links to the products and feedback survey can be found below.
