Property Management

Certificate of Accomplishment

Program Code: 82911

Program Overview

Humber College, in co-operation with The Institute of Housing Management (IHM), presents a certificate program for those engaged in the management of and operations of publicly and privately owned residential and institutional buildings.

Today's market is very competitive, and there is a greater need for accredited property managers. The Property Management program provides a forum for the acquisition and dissemination of information that will help those involved in managing operations; developing and designing buildings; or to those providing equipment, products or services to the industry - ensuring that training programs, compatible with identified needs, are available to the industry and accrediting property management professionals.

Receipt of the certificate qualifies you to become a candidate of IHM, and is the first step toward achieving the designation AIHM (Accredited Member of the Institute of Housing Management).

Recommended: It is highly recommended that you take Property and Building Administration (NIHM 201) as your first course. For those with no accounting experience, HPCP 311 course is strongly recommended to be taken prior to the Strategic and Financial Planning for Property Managers (NIHM 202) course. If you choose HPCP  311 as your elective course, you do not have to meet the pre-requisite requirement for this course.

Online Learning: The online courses are offered through Humber's Learning Management system, Blackboard 9.1. HPCP 311 is offered through Ontario Learn.

Online courses are accessible via a web browser from anywhere in the world and are well-suited to those who need a more flexible study schedule.
