Additional LHA Registered Assessors Courses for 2014 - Register Now

The Association of Consultants in Access Australia (ACAA) seeks registrations from persons wishing to participate in courses to become a Registered Assessor under the Livable Housing Design Guidelines in various states. The nationally agreed Livable Housing Design Guidelines assist you to understand, promote and deliver livable designed homes. The Guidelines provide technical advice and guidance on the key easy living features that make a home easier and safer in which to live for people of all ages and abilities.
Livable Housing Australia’s Registered Assessors are independent consultants who evaluate the design and completed construction of residential dwellings against the Livable Housing Design Guidelines.

It is great to see that already some major projects e.g., the Commonwealth Games Athletes Village (CGAV) on the Gold Coast are moving into Livable Housing and will be assessed by LHA assessors. The CGAV will include a mixture of Silver and Gold Standard Designs.

ACAA Management Committee has put considerable effort into making sure its members would have an opportunity to become LHA Registered Assessors. ACAA have partnered with IATA, who are approved by LHA to deliver the courses.

The cost for the course for ACAA members is $300 and Non-members is $380 plus GST.

To register for the proposed one-day workshops complete the on-line booking form available here.

The proposed course dates and locations are follows:
Sydney - 14 November 2014, 18 March 2015
Brisbane - 14 July 2015
Melbourne - 28 October 2014, 11 March 2015, 4 June 2015
Perth - 27 November 2014, 18 February 2015

ACAA CPD category C2 = 10 + 2 points for completing the on-line test after the course = 12 points.

ACAA and IATA reserve the right to cancel courses at any time if necessary. If cancellation occurs all fees paid by registrants will be refunded in full.
