Easy Access

CCIM Members:

Like me, I’m sure you know colleagues who are interested in the CCIM designation but don’t have the time or schedule to commit to the program. Now we’re making it easier for industry professionals to accelerate their participation in the CCIM education program by offering four course delivery methods.

I ask each of you to pass along this issue of CIRE to colleagues interested in the CCIM designation program. Point out this note from me, which explains our customized program, and the course schedule and registration information on p.7. And let me know how we might customize CCIM courses so that every interested professional has the opportunity to access the world’s finest commercial real estate education.

CCIM’s five-day traditional classroom courses provide face-to-face interaction with CCIM’s respected faculty. Students can network with classmates and get to know CCIM’s instructors, who have years of real-world experience.

Time-constrained students can access CCIM education through online courses. With the five-week instructor-led model, students attend live virtual classroom sessions and interact with instructors and classmates. The online self-paced option is completed on the student’s own schedule.

Students also can combine the advantages of the traditional classroom with the convenience of online delivery with CCIM’s new hybrid option. The hybrid courses are a great way to try the online format without losing the face-to-face networking benefits of the classroom.

I hope that current candidates can accelerate their careers by completing their CCIM education and designation requirements in 2011 and join us for the comprehensive exam in either Bethesda, Md., in April, or Phoenix, Ariz., in October. The red CCIM pin — and a better chance at a successful real estate career — await you.
