MPIND - Traditional Management Plan

As part of the designation process, CPM Candidates must complete the management plan requirement. There are two options to meet this requirement:

Complete the Traditional Management Plan (MPIND): Prepare and receive a passing score on a management plan on an actual property of your own choice following detailed guidelines provided.


Complete and pass the Management Plan Skills Assessment (MPSAXM) course and MPSA exam administered during the course.

Both options are designed to validate your real estate management competency, and assesses your knowledge of the concepts, technical skills, and processes involved in preparing, analyzing, and completing a property management plan following IREM standards.

If you wish to submit the traditional plan, please register for the Traditional Management Plan following the first link on the left. After you register for the Traditional Management Plan, you will receive instructions on how to create and submit a traditional management plan that builds on the principles taught in REIC / IREM courses and your overall experience in real estate management.

If a failing grade is obtained on the exam, you must register for the course again and pay the registration fee in full each time.
