Time: 1pm – 2pm AEST
Date: 2nd June
This CPD presentation is a follow-on from the Mullum Creek Eco-housing webinar presented by Paul Haar on 20 April 2021. Alex Rentsch will explore in depth the optimising of ratings for high star rating houses, but the webinar will also be generally applicable to basic “6 star” ratings.
The webinar will place an emphasis on the use of AccuRate and FirstRate5 software, and will present key factors in achieving high ratings.
