New Property Management Certification

01/30/2019 | By Sarah Kloepple

The Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International and the Building Owners and Managers Institute (BOMI) International announced that they are partnering to create a new “early-career” certification for commercial property managers. They will also produce online education materials for the commercial real estate industry.

The new property management certification, launching this summer, will entail a certification exam that addresses “key knowledge, skills and abilities based on a competency model for property managers recently completed by BOMA and BOMI,” according to a press release. The partnership’s board of managers will oversee and certification program and is still finalizing exam eligibility and other requirements.

“This is a top priority for both organizations,” said BOMA International chair and CEO Brian Cappelli in a press release.

The second initiative of the partnership involves creating online education materials that will support the certification program and other industry training needs. It will offer “timely, high-quality” education to professionals in the commercial real estate industry.
