This project, RP3039, sought to adapt the existing Liveability Real Estate Framework to develop an online “real estate knowledge” handbook for ‘moderators’ of the website developed in CRCLCL project RP3029e1 and an online Liveability Real Estate Specialist training course suitable for TAFE Sydney Students studying for qualifications in property services (real estate).
The Liveability Real Estate training offers a way of teaching the basics of how to recognise and improve the sustainability performance of residential housing and converts this into “features based” knowledge (17 Liveability Features) suitable for the property marketing industry. The project team engaged with TAFE Sydney, TAFE NSW, project staff of RP3029e1, students and real estate professionals to create an online course to meet their needs.
The online manual for Moderators is available via link and is subject to copyright is available on request.
The pilot online course is hosted in the Moodle environment by CSIRO and will remain available for use by relevant stakeholders after the close of the project on request.
