The Housing Health and Safety Rating System: two one-day courses carried out two weeks apart

This one-day course is designed to provide delegates with a thorough understanding of the principles and process behind the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS) and with the skills required to carry out of inspection of properties that will identify the presence of any of the 29 hazards identified by the HHSRS.

To enable delegates to carry out HHSRS Assessments with the required levels of consistency and accuracy, delegates will be required to undertake a programme of self-study following the training session.  The materials required for that self-study will be provided at the end on the training session.

Part 2:   HHSRS: Competency Assessment 

To provide the client with an assurance that those delegates who attend the HHSRS: Inspection and Assessment course, have fully understood the assessment process and are able in practice of undertaking HHSRS Assessments with the appropriate levels  of accuracy and consistency.
