Foundations of Real Estate Management

Let AOBA help you provide your staff with the hands-on education they need!

AOBA and BOMA recognize that our industry faces a real shortage of new talent, and that on-the-job training is often inconsistent and sporadic. To respond to these challenges, we are launching a new "soup-to-nuts" course, Foundations of Real Estate Management, covering key topics in administration and management, building systems and operations, accounting and reporting, and contract administration. Also, this course has been approved by BOMI – The Building Owners and Managers Institute - for competency credit for the Fundamentals of Real Property Administration course in their RPA curriculum. View the course curriculum.
