Professional Accreditation

with the Strata Community Association

Accreditation for Strata Community Managers

 

The Strata Community Association (SCA) is committed to upholding the highest standards of professionalism in the strata sector and providing our members with the opportunity to continually develop their skills and knowledge.

The Accreditation Program provides nationally and internationally recognised professional qualifications for strata community managers so nominated by a Corporate Strata Manager Member. Consumers demand it and Strata Managers, in order to remain up-to-date and competitive, need to have it.

Why is Accreditation necessary?

For Consumers

SCA Accreditation provides a way to identify SCA Managers who have submitted themselves to a code of conduct and undertake continuing professional development, therefore creating security, trust, professionalism and recognition. 
 
For the Strata Industry

SCA Accreditation enables SCA Managers to gain professional recognition, and thereby a competitive advantage, which can enhance their business, and help build a long-term career. Consequently, accreditation works to raise strata industry standards overall. Specifically, the SCA Accreditation helps ensure SCA Managers that they:

•    are aware of relevant and current legislation
•    follow the specific requirements of legislation
•    adhere to best practice
•    adopt current procedures
•    commit to clerical excellence and
•    continually enhance their managerial and meeting chairmanship skills.

 


Details of the scheme and its means of implementation are contained in the below documents.
