Become a ‘Tenant of Choice'

The Tenancy Skills Institute is delivering Skillsets for Successful Tenancies - Dollars and Sense, a free, competency-based training program which up skills people who are wanting to enter the private rental market.

The program is designed to help tenants successfully secure and keep a rental tenancy. Because of this, if you are at risk of losing a current tenancy, but unsure where you're going wrong or how to steer your rental journey back on track, this program will equip you with skills and knowledge that are key to taking control in a positive way.

Once complete, graduates receive a certificate to include with their rental application, giving them a competitive advantage. If you have no rental history, property managers can sometimes be a little hesitant on accepting your application. With this certificate, property managers know you have taken the initiative to learn the vital skills needed to maintain a residential tenancy giving the application higher merit than those without this evidence.

The 10-hour training covers four key skillsets that are vital for a successful tenancy including communication skills, tenant rights and responsibilities, cleaning and maintaining a property and budgeting.

Graduate Stories

“I learned how to take care of myself and understand my rights and responsibilities, which I never knew about before. I learned how to look after the house, how to pay my rent, how to take care of the kitchen, how to be a good neighbour and show courtesy.”


“The way I’m dealing with my current tenancy is completely different to the way I dealt with my tenancy 12 months ago. I learnt about different types of cleaning, budgeting, and how to communicate with my landlord and real estate. There is help out there for everyone.”
