For many Kiwis, property is the largest investment they will ever own. Property is also a vital asset for many businesses, requiring careful management by experts. By becoming a property manager, you will become well-versed in the skills and legislation around protecting these investments and managing them successfully for clients.

One of the key responsibilities for property managers is to manage tenants and make sure rents are received on time. Other important tasks include maintaining the property, arranging emergency repairs, managing budgets, and keeping excellent business records.

Gaining a national qualification in property management adds credibility to your skills and can help enhance your reputation with potential clients, as well as industry peers.

The New Zealand Certificate in Residential Property Management (Level 4) programme is the pathway for people wishing to develop expertise in the sector. The qualification recognises the relevant knowledge and skills of those already employed as a residential property manager, tasked with supervising the decision-making of letting agents and administrative staff.

The standard programme is delivered online and you will have immediate access to study materials and resources for the whole programme. You can submit papers as you complete each one.
