Course Materials:The Fundamentals of Personal Property Management manual and Study Guide (included with registration fees)

Every organization, regardless of its size or type has critical business functions that are integral parts of meeting its objectives and accomplishing the mission. Property management is, first and foremost, a general management assignment no different than the management of any other resource such as money, personnel, or facilities. Personal property managers are directly accountable to a higher authority for the acquisition, use, redistribution, and disposition of personal property. As stewards of our company or agency’s personal property, we have a fiduciary responsibility to manage property in a prudent and compliant way. The Fundamentals of Personal Property Management course is designed to teach the basics of property management, cradle-to-grave, including how to effectively manage personal property.

Topic Overview:

  • Acquisitions
  • Receiving
  • Identification
  • Storage and Warehousing
  • Movement
  • Maintenance
  • Physical Inventory
  • Utilization
  • Consumption
  • Property Disposition

Core Benefits:

  1. Learn about the responsibilities of personal property management professionals.
  2. Gain an understanding of personal property management and its importance.
  3. Acquire the essential tools necessary to manage personal property.

The NPMA Certification Program is designed to elevate professional standards and enhance individual performance for those who demonstrate a high level of competence essential to the practice of property management.

Once you have paid for your registration, you will receive the course materials via email. Hardcopy manuals and CDs are shipped to the course site.
