Investopedia has named the Certified Apartment Manager (CAM) credential the best overall property management course for 2023. According to Investopedia, “The Certified Apartment Management Course by the National Apartment Association tops our list as the best overall property management course, not only thanks to the extensive list of topics it covers but because the topics can be applied to other property niches aside from apartments.” 

Among the many benefits listed were the course’s comprehensive material as well as having an online format.

“Credentials play a crucial role in the multifamily housing industry by fostering trust, promoting professionalism, providing regulatory guidance and enhancing the overall quality of services provided,” says Kim Hurd, CPO, CAPS, EVP, Property Management with KCG Companies, and NAAEI President. “Specifically, the CAM credential covers critical topics that specifically relate to our careers in residential property management: Legal responsibilities, risk management, resident experience, property maintenance, human resources, financial management and marketing.” 

Credential holders are able to take lessons learned during the coursework and apply them at certain points in time to real-life situations. “I keep my CAM student guide (and now my instructor guide) on my bookshelf with all my other resource materials because it serves as a reference guide for many real-world situations we face in residential property management,” Hurd says. 

NAA President and CEO Bob Pinnegar on the honor of the CAM credential being named the best property management course: “For years now, the rental housing industry’s leaders of tomorrow have built a solid career foundation through NAAEI’s Certified Apartment Manager (CAM) credential. The innovative, collaborative and hands-on approach of the CAM program fosters well-equipped apartment professionals, and NAA is honored by Investopedia’s recognition of this important and ever-growing credential.”
