Running a better rooming house: A best practice handbook for operators.

As a member you will have received the fourth edition of Running a better rooming house or you will have read it in the Programs section of the RAAV website. 

We have now produced six E-Learning modules based on the manual as an alternative way to receive this important information. It also means that we can update the information quickly and easily when required. 

You, and your staff, will be able to go through the modules at your own pace and as often as you like. I hope that you enjoy this new education resource for members and find it beneficial to your business.
