His Attitude Adjustment Strategies will teach attendees how to shift their way of thinking and laugh while doing it.  If you want to motivate yourself or your team to do more, be more, and achieve more... this is the program for you.  Register for this Keynote Presentation for your own personal development and growth OR register a group of employees from your company for an afternoon of training and team-building.

Private Offerings:

Spread the word that Private Offering Courses are available for your company - groups of 10 or more.  This means an instructor comes to your site and holds a class for just your company's employees.  The idea is to get a group of people to "fast track" their way to a CPM, ARM, or ACoM designation.  The more people in the class, the lower the price per person.  For more information on this excellent opportunity, contact the Region 3 Education office at 301.948.6234 or download the Private Offerings Brochure here!

Online Self-Paced Courses:

For those interested in taking courses at their own pace, IREM offers many online self-paced courses.  Open new doors for yourself with the help of IREM education.  With our online and classroom courses, you'll give yourself a leg up in the constantly evolving world of real estate management.
