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.
