Graduation

Once your CPM candidate file is complete, you have graduated!

You’ll also be able to redeem a digital CPM badge to showcase your credibility on your social media profiles, websites, and more.

What’s next for CPMs

Keep your membership and licenses current

Important: Once approved as a CPM, you are required to maintain an annual membership in IREM and NAR, along with any required state licensures, or you’ll lose the right to use your CPM designation. This helps maintain the high standards that make your CPM designation so valuable.

You’ll keep your competitive edge in property management financial analysis, budgeting and forecasting, and the full range of operational needs with IREM tools, including:

Ethics

All CPMs must continue to uphold the IREM Code of Professional Ethics
