Current Certified Commercial Investment Member Institute president Richard Juge wants it to be known that this is not your daddy’s CCIM anymore—a sentiment that is reflected by the association’s recent moves to redesign its curriculum and roll out new web-based programs. This emphasis on education and technology, in addition to networking, packs a powerful punch and is largely the reason the organization has built a cache of more than 15,000 members across 59 chapters and 37 countries since its roots as a California Association of Realtors-established group, Certified Property Exchanger, back in 1954.

To earn the CCIM moniker, candidates must complete a series of designation courses, earn elective credits and pass a comprehensive exam.
