The PPMA is proud to announce a new affiliation with the Real Estate Institute of Manitoba (REIM) which is a Chapter of the Real Estate Institute of Canada and IREM COUNCIL #114 of the Institute of Real Estate Management!
The affiliation between our two organizations will provide for an expanded professional education, training and mentorship programs which would lead to our members receiving internationally recognized professional designations such as the A.R.M. (Accredited Residential Manager), Accredited Commercial Manager, and the C.P.M. (Certified Property Manager).
This affiliation compliments our Professional Apartment Caretaker (PAC) Program and provides the next level of education both for site staff and property managers alike.
With minimum participation levels, courses could be brought to Winnipeg which would negate the costly expense of employee travel and accommodations to the traditional course locations with some designation requirements being only two courses.
Our education committee will be working along with the R.E.I.M. Board of Directors in order to fine tune our affiliation throughout the summer and a representative of the R.E.I.M. will present at our September general meeting.

In light of the successful launch of the Caretaker Certificate program being offered at Red River Community College (RRCC), the PPMA Education Committee is investigating future continuing education courses which will be discussed at the January 2008 Education Committee meeting. Those courses will be presented via a number of agencies, including PPMA.
The RTB and RRCC will be offering courses that will grant required continuing education credits. The PPMA Suite Living Trade Show 2008 has all education seminars set with all sessions being sponsored by PPMA member firms and one presenter yet to be confirmed. This is going to be an excellent series to attend. Be sure to register once the trade show forms are finalized and distributed to the PPMA membership.
Some feed back has been received on the Workplace Safety & Health Manual seminar presented in October 2007. The initial portion was well done but the second part left some attendees a bit disappointed since the power point presentation crashed. The attendees expressed that the seminar would be best suited to those individuals responsible for producing the manuals for their respective companies.
If you haven’t started your manuals, you can download the template from the PPMA website at www.ppmamanitoba.com. The manual can be found in the “PPMA Member Area”. Remember, you have to customize the template to fit your companies particular needs.
The following Red River College (RRC) courses are currently recognized as suitable for obtaining credits towards the continuing education required for continued certification under the current PPMA/RRC joint caretaker certificate program:
All of the aforementioned courses should be confirmed directly with RRC as to availability, schedule, etc. PPMA does not take responsibility for RRC information or offerings.
All PPMA course/seminar attendance credits are awarded based on the following criteria:
