CCIM Institute Launches Hybrid Courses
Adding convenience and flexibility to a student’s progress through its core curriculum, the CCIM Institute is offering a new hybrid course structure beginning in February 2011 for its four core courses: CI 101 Financial Analysis for Commercial Investment Real Estate, CI 102 Market Analysis, CI 103 User Decision Analysis, and CI 104 Investment Analysis.
The hybrid format consists of four instructor-led, online sessions over two weeks, then 2-½ days of classroom instruction allowing for hands-on application exercises featuring real world case studies. All online sessions are recorded so students can review the material to better prepare for the classroom sessions. This new delivery format gives students access to the same quality content, resources, and instructors available in the traditional five-day classroom settings.
