Become an LHA Guideline Assessor

This course is for professionals who want to undertake LHA or SDA Assessments and confirm compliance with these.

Developments that are required to meet the Livable Housing Australia (LHA) Design Guidelines, as well as Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) design categories (under the National Disability Insurance Scheme) must comply with the LHA Design Guidelines. The only person that can confirm compliance and issue the LHA Quality Mark is an LHA Registered Assessor. They must complete this course and successfully pass the on line test.

The Livable Housing Design Guidelines provide the opportunity for many designers, developers and accommodation providers to expand their markets by building houses and apartments that can offer long term homes for the whole community, regardless of age, ability or changing life circumstances.

The LHA Guidelines are also being called up by a variety of governments and organisations that have recognised the benefits of this inclusive approach to housing.

The demand for LHA and SDA Certification is expanding at a rapid rate and the need for LHA Design Guideline Assessors is rapidly rising.

LHA strongly encourages uptake of the guidelines in all new housing developments and upgrades across Australia and provides training through the Access Institute for people interested in becoming LHA Registered Assessors.

The course is also open to anyone with an interest in the LHA Design Guidelines to gain further knowledge of these. 3 hour Course.

‘I want to thank you for a fantastic course yesterday. I always love learning new things in different ways and yesterday, I learnt even more about Universal Design in playspaces and public places. Your educators were passionate and knowledgeable and really engaging. Thank you for making such a big difference in the way places are designed. I reckon every landscape architect should do your course at a minimum before they are qualified to design places! All the best.’ — Bec Ho (Executive Officer), Touched by Olivia Foundation
