IREM Next-Gen CPM Leaders

Next Gen CPM

Exclusively for employees of AMO Firms

The IREM Next-Gen CPM Leaders Program is an exclusive opportunity for AMO Firms to fast-track their young up-and-comers (under the age of 40) to earn the CPM. The program provides a unique experience in that individuals from all over the country will be completing requirements and enhanced supplemental leadership training together. The program not only enhances your employee’s network, it enhances their key skill sets which can be immediately utilized to enhance your business – bringing value to the properties you manage.

All of this for 50% less than the average price of your employee earning the CPM on their own.

Leadership Track within the Next Gen CPM Program is sponsored by President Level Industry Partner, Rent Manager
