Our Physical Building Management course teaches you about the physical aspects of the total condominium site and how to get the most economic life out of common elements through good maintenance practices. This condo management course focuses on proactive maintenance and reactive management for residential condo structures and examines effective day-to-day building management practices and the handling of emergency situations. Explore a range of topics from a property management perspective, and develop a working knowledge of heating, air conditioning, ventilation, electricity, the building envelope, plumbing systems, fire systems, performance audits and groundskeeping. Learn when to call in professionals, how to work with them, how to solve problems within the physical building environment and how to effectively communicate issues and solutions to your condo board.
This is one of four condominium management courses that prepare you to write the Registered Condominium Manager (RCM) exam administered by the Association of Condominium Managers of Ontario (ACMO). Visit the Condominium Management Program web page for more information about the RCM designation and the provincial condominium manager’s license overseen by the Condominium Management Regulatory Authority of Ontario (CMRAO).
