  • Canada - Pursue the CCIM designation as a Canadian candidate, the Institute candidate equivalent for professionals who live in Canada.
  • International - Pursue the CCIM designation as an International candidate, the Institute candidate equivalent for professionals who live outside the U.S. or Canada.
  • U.S. Government Discount - Join CCIM at a reduced Institute candidate rate if you are a U.S. government employee or in the military.
  • Fast Track - Waive the portfolio and elective credit requirement on your way to the CCIM designation if you have an eligible designation.
  • University Fast Track - Waive CI 101 and two of the following courses: CI 102, CI 103 or CI 104, depending on your specific  approved university's real estate master's program.

Individuals who are not seeking the CCIM designation but want access to some of the tools may choose to purchase an Academic membership or Site To Do Business access at sitetodobusiness.com. Please contact our Solutions Center for more information on Associate memberships.
