The Power of the Pin

For more than 50 years, CCIM Institute has been the leader in commercial real estate professional development and the premier networking organization for the industry.

More than 20,000 professionals have completed the core Designation program to earn the CCIM pin, commercial real estate's most coveted credential. Today, fewer than 10 percent of commercial real estate investors and advisers currently wear the CCIM pin, making them the go-to experts in their respective markets. Industry research has shown that CCIM Designees significantly outperform non-Designated professionals across key metrics, including compensation.

But CCIM isn't just a Designation. CCIM Institute provides additional educational resources to grow and develop real estate's workforce of the future through our Ward Center for Real Estate Studies. Whether it's a customized training program or a lunchtime webinar, we're your professional development solution. Select courses also qualify for CE credit in many states.
