About the Program

In July of 1998, CIC launched its Property Management Training program (PMT), an initiative designed to provide information and resources to owners and managers of multifamily rental properties. Since its inception, the program’s centerpiece has been its four-evening course entitled The Basics of Residential Property Management. PMT also offers sessions that concentrate on a single topic, such as boiler repair, landscaping, rodent control, marketing, and tenant screening. PMT sessions are offered at a variety of locations throughout the metropolitan area, including meeting facilities of investor banks. Since 1998, PMT has provided training to more than 19,400 owners and managers. Through this program, CIC is constantly expanding and strengthening the pool of qualified apartment building owners/investors.

In FY 2018, CIC provided 54 training sessions attended by 1,376 current or prospective managers/owners of affordable housing.
