A skilled, confident team is fundamental to your company’s efficient and profitable performance. The most productive, effective and committed employees are those who have received comprehensive, focused training. That's precisely where BOMA can help. Foundations of Real Estate Management provides the building blocks you need to build your high-performance team. Effective, targeted training from the industry leader…What are you waiting for?
Foundations is a soup-to-nuts, 6-module, 30-hour entry-level course, covering the fundamentals of commercial real estate administration, management, building systems, accounting and reporting, contract management and more.
“From façade to basement, this class provided a real life overview of concepts both familiar and more detailed regarding properties. If you’re new to the business or simply looking for perspectives from other property managers, this is a great course to consider.”
“I attended the Foundations course on a recommendation by my manager and was skeptical that it would be beneficial to me. I felt that a foundations course would not enhance the experience and knowledge I had gained as a 25+ year professional in the industry. I could not have been more mistaken. Having peer instructors and neighbor buildings to tour was a wonderful opportunity to share ideas, struggles, and victories. I learned so much and connected with colleagues that I had not seen in years, met new friends and now have a support system to bounce ideas off of. It was an invaluable experience and I and would recommend foundations to anyone in the field”
“I signed up for the BOMA Foundations course in 2015 as a lawyer with high expectations given my experience in BOMA. I wanted to learn more about my clients and the real estate industry and I was not disappointed. The course was intensive, but covered a multitude of areas. In addition, the instructors were top notch experts in the field and provided unique tours of some of Metro-Detroit's most prominent buildings. I would definitely recommend the course to those looking to impress their peers with knowledge and connections that cannot be found anywhere else.”
“As a vendor member of BOMA, I found the Foundations class to be a very valuable experience. I was able to get to know more about our clients, who are property managers, and gain an increased respect for many different aspects of their job and the challenges entailed. I feel that the knowledge gained in this course has helped me develop a greater understanding of how to best serve our clients. The course was also an excellent opportunity to network with clients and other vendors.”
The principal audience for this program is all property management professionals with less than 5 years’ experience, although others with even ten or more years of experience in the field have reported that the program not only serves as a refresher but also offers important information not covered in other courses.
