Condominium Management and Administration Certificate Program

Certificate of Completion | CONDO_MGT_CC

The Condominium Management and Administration certificate program is offered in partnership with the Association of Condominium Managers of Ontario (ACMO). This part-time program has been developed to train you in the physical building management, financial management, human relations and legal aspects of residential condominum management. Theory and examples of day-to-day problems and practices are blended so that you can apply what you have learned. Faculty come from the field and have hands-on experience managing condominiums.

Important Notice:

As of November 1, 2017, the four ACMO courses are the educational requirement for a general license under the Condominium Management Services Act.  This Act requires all condominium managers and providers in Ontario to be licensed.  For more information on licensing, contact the Condominium Management Regulatory Authority of Ontario (CMRAO) at www.cmrao.ca.  These are also the four compulsory courses which lead to ACMO’s Registered Condominium Manager’s (RCM) exam.  For more information on the RCM credential, contact ACMO at www.acmo.org.  In addition, successful completion of the four ACMO courses plus the elective leads to a Certificate of Completion from Humber College.
