Through its educational programs, CHAM advances best practices that help the affordable housing industry maintain the long-term strength and viability of their assets.
Asset management at its essence is a strategic and analytical profession requiring specialized skills. Two certifications are offered that take learners through the process of attaining the knowledge and skills in a progression that builds their careers.
Asset Management Specialist Certificate
The Asset Management Specialist (AMS) courses start with the fundamentals and then teach how to apply the knowledge using real-life examples.
Certified Housing Asset Manager®
The Certified Housing Asset Manager® (CHAM) courses teach advanced financial and analytical skills and techniques that the learner then applies to one of their own properties.
The courses I took to earn my CHAM certificate were extremely enlightening and interactive, and I was able to use what I learned in my everyday asset management role. What’s more, prospective employers were impressed with the CHAM certificate, which has definitely helped propel my career.
