Exam Preparation Resources

BOMA and BOMI have partnered to develop a 30-hour CMCP exam prep course, to be offered online and launched in July 2019, but other training is also acceptable to meet eligibility requirements, including the BOMA Foundations of Real Estate Management course, RPA courses, programs offered by BOMA local associations and other organizations, company in-house training programs, real estate license education and other verifiable sources of commercial real estate education.

I decided to get my CMCP because I felt the more information and knowledge I have, the better property manager I would be. The more you can learn about your career, the more prepared you will be. I did the CMCP right after the RPA. I think starting with the CMCP first, and then moving onto the RPA will help all property managers, regardless of where they are in their career.
