Pursue the CCIM Designation
Your Path to Excellence
CCIM Designees represent the top tier of commercial real estate investment specialists, including investors, asset managers, brokers, developers, lenders, appraisers, and other industry leaders. Our courses will transform the way you perform valuations, complete market and financial analysis, and advise your clients. By pursuing the CCIM Designation, you are embarking on the path to ensuring your success in the industry.
The education component of the CCIM Designation program consists of four Designation courses, an online ethics course, negotiation training, and elective courses from the Robert L. Ward Center for Commercial Real Estate Studies.
To demonstrate your experience in commercial real estate, you must submit a portfolio of qualifying activities, transactions, projects, or work products. Your portfolio can take one of three forms, depending on your level of experience and the type of work you have done.
The Comprehensive Exam is a full-day exam that tests your knowledge of the concepts covered in the Designation courses. Before taking the exam, you will have the opportunity to review the key topics that will be covered in the Course Concepts Review.
