CAI has published its 2013 Education Catalog, complete with course schedules and detailed information about education opportunities for community managers, association board members and service providers.
The catalog includes a complete schedule—by region and month—of more than 165 courses that will be offered coast to coast throughout the year.
CAI offers 17 Professional Management Development Program courses, including Ethics, a new, online, 300-level course that will be available in early 2013. Other online courses include The Essentials of Community Association Management (M-100), Facilities Management (M-201), Risk Management (M-205) and Financial Management (M-206). Except for Ethics, each is also taught in a classroom setting.
The catalog also outlines the three levels of education for association board members and other homeowner leaders:
- An Introduction to Community Association Living (PDF download)
- The Fundamentals of Community Volunteer Leadership (online course)
- The Essentials of Community Association Volunteer Leadership (provided by CAI chapters)
For product and service providers, CAI offers Business Partner Essentials, a two-part, online course that helps CAI-member business professionals better understand CAI, community associations and the industry at large.
The catalog lists almost 20 of more than 65 on-demand webinars that can be accessed 24/7. Topics include conflict management; crime prevention; finances, foreclosure and revenue streams; insurance and risk management; pets and wildlife; rules and governing documents; and legal resources. A number of new webinars will be held and added to the archive during 2013.
The catalog also summarizes CAI’s most popular events, including the Community Association Law Seminar, Jan. 24-26 in Palms Springs, Calif., and the CAI Annual Conference and Exposition, April 17-20 in San Diego.
"Education is an essential part of CAI’s mission to help our members build and sustain better communities," says Dave Jennings, CAI’s vice president of education. "It’s also our goal to help community managers and service providers become more successful professionals and to help association board members become more respected leaders. We continually improve our curriculum thanks in large part to the many industry leaders who share their time as instructors, content experts and sponsors."
