You'll sit with your industry peers and work with them to solve real-world case studies. Classroom education gives you the opportunity to network and learn from your classmates and instructors.

Online Instructor-Led Courses

Online Instructor-Led

The online instructor-led format gives you access to the CCIM Institute's expert instructors without the cost of travel and time away from the office.

You'll master the same concepts taught in the equivalent in-class course, and your only scheduled commitment is participation in online virtual classroom sessions. Students should be comfortable studying independently and with completely online interaction with instructors and classmates.

Online core courses (CI 101 - 104) run for five weeks, with twice-weekly, live virtual classroom sessions. During these 75-minute sessions, instructors review course content, answer questions, and encourage discussion. Students can expect to spend 8 - 10 hours per week on the course, including the virtual classroom sessions. Each week of an online course roughly translates to one day of the equivalent in-class course. The online final exam opens after the final virtual session and stays open for seven days.

The Ward Center for Real Estate Studies offers shorter online instructor-led courses on specialized topics.

The CCIM Institute's online self-paced education allows you to progress at your own schedule. Like in-class education, these courses challenge and equip you with the knowledge you need to propel your career and add value for your clients.

When you sign up for online self-paced education, you gain access to the knowledge of experienced CCIM instructors and have the opportunity to earn CCIM elective credit without leaving your home or office.

Members who register for online self-paced courses have continuing access to the course as long as they maintain their membership.

Blended (Online + Classroom) Courses

Blended (Online + Classroom)

Blended Learning is a combination of classroom, independent study, and online instruction. The first four weeks of the course are comprised of self-paced interactive online activities, videos, scheduled virtual classroom meetings with instructor and classmates, guided research assignments, and assessments. The final day-and-a-half is spent working through a capstone case study in the traditional classroom format.
