Here's what RPA "graduates" are saying:

"I chose to pursue my RPA designation for multiple reasons, primarily because I knew how highly regarded this designation is in our industry. Earning the designation shows your peers (and employer) that you have worked hard to become proficient in your profession. The classes expand your knowledge of property management, finance, risk management and even engineering. I would highly recommend this program to any real estate professional that is serious about career and professional growth!" Jamie A. Beale, RPA, Foulger Pratt

"The true value you receive from the RPA program is not only in the course material, but the reinforcement based upon real world experiences from the instructors, your fellow students and guest speakers. The dynamic interaction of the classroom will help you better understand the subject matter, network with your peers, and most certainly help make you a better manager." Glenn P. Hugo, RPA, FMA, CCIM, MRP Realty

“The RPA program has provided me with a well-rounded education in property management. If I am faced with an issue for the first time, my RPA textbooks are the first place I look for guidance.” Amy Natoli, RPA, Property Manager, The Brick Companies
