AM351 Advanced Housing Asset Management (CHAM)

Advanced Housing Asset Management (AHAM) is the final course in the Certified Housing Asset Manager (CHAM) series.

Chestnut Linden CourtCourse Description: AM351 is designed for participants who have completed or tested out of all of the other courses in the series (see the CHAM curriculum for details). This class will bring together all of the aspects of asset management covered through the CHAM curriculum. During the three in-person days of the class, students will explore techniques for analyzing and managing portfolios of properties, through exercises involving both case studies and analysis of their own organizations’ portfolios.

The final stage in securing the CHAM designation is submission of an asset management plan for a property in the participant’s portfolio, along with an analysis of that property in the portfolio context. This requirement will be described in detail during the class. As a first step toward the completion of that project, and in fulfillment of the requirements for the AHAM class, students will prepare a summary presentation on their subject property’s asset management challenges and/or opportunities, along with the student’s proposed asset management solutions. Within 30 days of the completion of theRivermark in-person training, students will present this summary presentation via Webinar to one of the instructors and a subset of class participants. Participants will benefit from one-on-one coaching from the instructors via telephone or other technology, as they develop their asset management strategies for their properties.

At any time following the class, students can submit their completed final projects to the CHAM administrators for evaluation. This final project, along with successful completion of all classes in the CHAM sequence, are required for CHAM certification.
