Congratulations!

To Date, 50 DPMs have attended all 3 sessions and became certified as Departmental Property Managers: If you missed one or two of the 3 sessions last year and would like to complete the certification process this year, just let us know when you register. CCO is tracking attendance and uploading the attendance into the MyCUinfo training. You can keep track of your progress there.

Overall Numbers To Date: 328 attendees (194 unique attendees) for the 11 sessions held since December 2010. The goal is to certify the 159 staff who have property roles within their department but all staff are welcome to come and learn about the exciting world of property management. It sounds so simple till you get into the details!

159 Departmental Property Managers manage ~$500,000,000 of capital campus assets! For most, DPM duties are in the ‘Not Elsewhere Classified’ category of the PDQ. It can be tough if you do not know where to go for assistance and so OCG, Property Services, and CCO developed this training program to help.
