" I’m so pleased, dare I say “chuffed to bits”, with becoming a level 2 Certified Housing Professional. Becoming a certified member of the AHI gives me personally, a legitimacy to my contribution of working in the social housing industry. This is especially true for me here at City Housing - Wellington City Council, where I’m able to fully utilise and now be recognised for the use of my architectural skills and background. Becoming a Certified Housing Professional gives me the opportunity, through my certification and membership, to support, grow and strengthen our industry across Australasia."
" Becoming a Certified Housing Professional validates my commitment to social housing and continuing my education in this area. I feel strongly about increasing my knowledge to ensure I am providing the tenants of City Housing, Wellington City Council with the best possible service to support all tenancies. Thanks to AHI for providing a range of accreditation options making it a smooth process for gaining certification. I am pleased City Housing supported my application, and to have achieved this certification only a few months after signing up for it is very pleasing. "
" To remain relevant we need to make sure we remain current with what is happening in our sector. The CHP accreditation programme is for housing professionals who have made a commitment to invest in themselves and in doing so to invest in the capability of the sector. The programme recognises people who are investing in their professional development and provides evidence their skills and knowledge remain up to date, providing comfort to employers that they remain professionally relevant.
