One in five Americans live in Shared-Expense Housing: Condominiums, Townhomes or Homeowner Associations, and that number is growing!

Chartered Condominium & Homeowners Association Manger (CCHOAM™) Certificate for Property Managers

  2. Mastery in Communications: The Foundation of Your Relationships
  3. Dealing with and Leading People: Difficult to Wonderful
  4. Legal Basics & Board Member Due Diligence & Collaboration

Most instructor video mini-lessons are 3 to 5 minutes each. See class video samples here. Each course is estimated to take anywhere from 45 to 90 hours to complete.

Volunteer Board Member Best Practices Training

Are you a new board member for your property? Have you been a board member for years but need help or a refresher? Review the ‘technical issue’ basics that you need to know to be a good board member for your property. Course content covers the same five course areas in the certificate program, planning, communication, leadership, finance and legal basics, but in a much abbreviated 6-hours of content. Managers and volunteer leaders may want to later add the more in-depth content and career certification of the certificate program. This 6-hour training is online and self-paced.
