Management Plan Independent (MPLIND)

Management Plan Independent (MPLIND) meets the management plan requirement for the CPM. It is one of two options for meeting the requirement. The other option is to attend and receive a passing score on the four day Management Plan Skills Assessment (MPSAXM). Both options are designed to assess your knowledge of the concepts, technical skills, and processes involved in preparing, analyzing, and completing a property management plan following IREM standards.

IMPORTANT: It is strongly recommended that you complete the CPM education requirements before completing the management plan requirement. Also, you must register for the Management Plan Independent (MPLIND) before completing and submitting a management plan written for an actual property of your own choosing.

Upon registration, you will receive access to the online Management Plan Independent Student Tutorial which includes detailed requirements and best practices for writing your plan. To increase your opportunity for success in writing your plan, it is strongly recommended that you complete this tutorial.
