Leading the way for WA housing professionals

4 Sep 2016

Access Housing General Manager Tenancy Services Allan Wilkerson has become Western Australia’s first housing sector professional to achieve Certified Housing Professional – Level 2 Accreditation with the Australasian Housing Institute.

The Australasian Housing Institute’s website states that Certified Housing Professional (CHP) is the accreditation awarded to housing professionals who have demonstrated a commitment to their profession and continuing professional development. To gain Level 2 Accreditation with AHI applicants must, amongst other things, be a member of the Institute, have more than two years of experience related to the social housing sector and a nationally recognised vocational qualification in a related discipline.

“It’s not just a matter of having a relevant qualification; it recognises the things I do throughout the year that contribute to the development of the sector.”

Allan has more than 30 years of experience in the housing sector, including nearly 25 years served with the WA Department of Housing where he worked across various housing divisions.
