CAM you please excuse me…i have a class to attend


Something very exciting has happened today!

(Back Story!)

I am an assistant manager for an apartment community. I have been in the industry almost six years and have been working hard towards my goal of becoming a property manager. I have a great mentor who has been doing well showing me the ropes and pushing me past (what I thought were my limits) of bettering myself as a person and as a manager.

A lot of companies in this business require or prefer a manager to have their CAM (certified apartment manager) certification. This course is sometimes paid for by your employer. In my case, my employer doesn’t pay for these certifications. This particular course and cost $600.00-$1200.00 pending on who you go through. A lot of money to come up with.

(Back to Now!)

So there is a course starting tomorrow through the apartment association and I emailed the head honcho. I explained that I will be private pay and wanted to know what their pay options are. I knew there was a course starting tomorrow and one beginning in February 2013. Wasn’t expecting to take the course starting tomorrow as I don’t have even half to put down for the course.

Her Reply: I have a scholarship program you can apply for. Fill it out and get back to me today. Show up for class tomorrow. I have a book for you.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!HOLY SMOKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I GET TO START THE COURSE TOMORROW AND MOST LIKELY NOT HAVING TO PAY A DIME! (if they accept my scholarship application)

I can’t stop smiling! Getting this certification is like having a 4 year degree in the apartment industry! This is going to help me out with knowledge and look great on my resume!

It feels so great to have this opportunity and I am very appreciative of everyone who helped me get here!

I hope you are having a great day and getting to expand your horizons!
