Here is what a new manager had to say about it:
“This course was absolutely fabulous. There was such a wealth of information offered. It is well thought out and easy to follow. Having this course at the beginning of my job would have been amazing. There is so much information offered that I had no idea about until I took It. This will prepare any new property manager for their job. I really enjoyed this course, and highly recommend it to anyone!”

– Andrea Gangel, Trillium Place Co-op

The course takes one to two hours and covers topics such as:

  • What makes a housing co-op a co-op?
  • The co-op principles
  • What makes co-ops different from other non-profit housing?
  • The co-op universe
  • The co-op structure and your job as manager
  • Different co-op funding programs
  • Housing co-op funding regulators
  • Summary and next steps

Note: This course is currently offered in English only.

This online course is a great first step in ongoing education to be an effective housing co-op manager.
