CCIM Institute confers the Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designation, commercial real estate’s global standard for professional achievement. Since 1969, the Chicago-based CCIM Institute has conferred the CCIM designation to commercial real estate and allied professionals through an extensive curriculum of 160 classroom hours and professional experiential requirements. The CCIM curriculum was redesigned in 2010 to reflect changing student demographics and real estate brokerage services, growth in international markets, new technologies, and new delivery models. The core curriculum addresses financial analysis, market analysis, user decision analysis, investment analysis, and negotiation—the cornerstones of commercial investment real estate.
An affiliate of the National Association of Realtors®, the CCIM Institute also offers the powerful technology tool STDB, an online site analysis and demographics resource, and the Ward Center for Real Estate Studies, which provides timely education and training to keep commercial real estate practitioners current in an ever-changing market environment.
Currently, there are nearly 10,000 CCIMs in 1,000 U.S. markets and 31 additional countries, with another 3,000+ practitioners pursuing the designation, making the institute the governing body of one of the largest commercial real estate networks in the world.
