Education and Training

Since 2014, the ICSH and CIH Housing Academy have partnered to deliver the popular CIH Certificate in Housing course. This course provides a challenging and highly relevant grounding in all aspects of housing strategy, policy, law and finance for housing practitioners. Learners also learn skills in self-reflection and how to manage people, risk and change.

Aimed at housing professionals aspiring to or working at management level, the course ensures learners have a sound understanding of the context within which housing organisations operate and is delivered through a blend classroom and online learning.

The course is delivered through 6 modules

  • Housing policy
  • Housing management services
  • Housing need, demand and supply
  • Housing law
  • Financing for housing
  • Professional practice skills for housing

There is one full class day per module with dedicated online resources to support your learning. There is also one assignment to be completed per module every 7-8 weeks. 

The current course began in January 2019 and due to demand we will have another class beginning in autumn 2019.

The full course brochure and application form will be available soon. In the meantime, please contact Catherine McGillycuddy, Membership Development Officer on 01 6618334 or for further information.
