      Hi, its Mark just a short note to let you know how much I enjoy taking this RMTI course. Well organised, easy to follow and the course is full of vital information, I could not have asked for more. It’s ideal for my career I want to pursue to property management and possibly my own company one day. My next goal is to get certificate for CSPO that will give me a great opportunity with employers.
    • Shane Taylor – CSPO Graduate

      Shane Taylor – CSPO Graduate

      I thought the CSPO – Certified Swimming Pool Operator course was a great teaching mechanism. I learned a lot of great information on chemicals and pH, opening and closing pools. I’m looking forward to putting all I learned to use, I cant wait to open my pool. Thank You so much.

      By all means, use this testimonial to indicate how beneficial, may I say necessary, this RMTI course is. A career in office & personnel management only prepared me insofar as to how I personally relate to people. Not a stitch beyond that. That is why the RMTI course was/is so valuable. A student is able to gain insight into the workings of the RTB & the Act, not to mention just regular legal requirements/demands of the position. Something you don’t find just on any web site (nor YouTube!). All interviewers were happy that I had taken the course & therefore found their position vacancies on the extended RMTI web site. (Me too!). These openings were located from downtown Vancouver all the way out to Chilliwack. In short, thank you. I’ve definitely started a new chapter in this book of life. Impossible without RMTI.

    • Paul Heron

      Paul Heron

      I began my journey in building management almost 10 years ago. RMTI posted an ad in the local paper that spoke to me. I was at a crossroads in my career at the time and needed a change. I immediately envisioned myself doing well in this industry and decided to take the RMTI certified course. Two months after graduating I landed my first job. During my initial telephone interview, my future boss had mentioned “I stood out among applicants due to having been certified with RMTI and set-up a meeting the following day”. Fast forward almost 10 years, and I’m still loving this very challenging diverse business. Highly recommend this course, some of the largest companies across Canada recognize the RMTI – Residents Managers Training Institute, it will give you a clear advantage and put you directly on top of the resume pile. Good luck!

      Chris & Jackie Latval

      My wife and I just wanted to give a big thank you to RMTI for helping us get an awesome new building position and give a really big thank you to Kelly Doyle, RMTI’s recruiting agent. Kelly really helped us through out the entire interview process with the building owner and landing us our new position as an Assistant Manager couple for a 150 suite rental building next to Stanley park with an awesome pay and benefits. Many buildings really want their new managers to have the RMTI course and this is why we took the RMTI course and the RMTI pool course 15 years ago as this has really helped us land awesome buildings through out our building managing career. We 100 percent recommend the RMTI course to anyone looking to have an exciting career as a resident building manager as the RMTI course will open many doors for you in this industry.

      Kelly Maple

      For me your course materials were extremely helpful as I have been working as a Resident Manager while completing the course. I especially found the General Complex Care valuable, it gave us the answers to all our questions about how to take care of our building. That being said, every chapter in the manual is full of relevant, accurate, helpful information that you would only otherwise gain through YEARS of experience so I thank you!

      First of all, I just want to say thank you so much, you may not remember me but I started my journey to property management at RMTI back in July 2009. I have worked as Resident Building Manager for 2 years and over 7 years as Property Manager. Please be advised that I have started my own rental property management company.

      Thank you Kelly, I could not have found a better fit and I am thrilled that the time has come for me to be hired on as a caretaker. I’m sure the RMTI course that I completed had a significant hand in me acquiring this employment.

      I have been working for the past NINE years as a Resident Manager. The course has been a vital resource and has provided me with practical skills. It continues to play a significant role in my ongoing development and experience. I would highly recommend RMTI to fellow managers and anyone considering a career in this field.
    • Fred & Joanne Alexander

      Fred & Joanne Alexander

      Joanne and I both graduated from the CRM, and I also graduated from the CSPO course(s). About 3 months we were hired as a manager couple to the management team. A few years later we delved into the Independent Retirement Living business in Alberta and later on managed the new student residences at The U of S in Saskatoon. If you are looking at becoming involved in building / property management we strongly recommend taking the course(s) RMTI offers. Our first job (at Langara Gardens in Vancouver) was a direct result of being graduates and being able to access the job postings on the RMTI site. The course(s) are definitely a solid investment in your future employment plans, and the net result to our being hired in various positions in residential building management.

      Hi this is Mario Menta I am sending this email to let you know how your course has helped me to acquire this job. If it wasn’t for the course that I did from your school I don’t think I would have got the job. It was very helpful to me with all the knowledge from my past construction history. I think that it was the catalyst that put it all together for me to get this job.

      Janice M. Nielsen, Vocational Counsellor

      Certified Resident Manager Training from RMTI is training I refer my clients to that are interested in becoming residential building managers/caretakers. From a career counselling perspective this training is accessible to all types of learning styles. The study manual, chronological study questions and multiple choice exams all support achieving success. The course content is well laid out, comprehensive, and contains up-to-date information relevant to working as a CRM. The course work can be completed online so the learner can work at his or her own pace. There is no costly travel or accommodations required for students. The training institute offers immediate support via telephone and email to students. There is valuable follow up for the student that includes resume support, job search strategies and valuable industry networks. Most importantly, the certification is industry recognized and valued by employers (my client was employed right after finishing the training!)   Janice M.

      First of all thank you. RMTI has helped me put my foot into the world of property management 10 years ago and it continues. Because I graduated from RMTI course I had opportunities to work for government owned buildings and houses as well as privately owned. And now I am going to work for the best North Vancouver has to offer.
    • David and Margaret Horvath

      David and Margaret Horvath

      It was an excellent course. We used the Job Link connection on the RMTI site exclusively and went through the postings regularly. There were a number of opportunities but it was important that the fit be right. Our present employer asked when we’d completed the course so it was obviously important to him that we’d taken the RMTI course. My wife and I are managing a complex in the Marpole area of Vancouver. It was exactly the size of project and the location we were looking for.
    • Peter Hilborne & Patricia (Vinoly) Webb

      Peter Hilborne & Patricia (Vinoly) Webb

      We both wanted to say thank you for such a great course. Before we finished the course we went to three interviews and were offered all three positions. The course gave us the confidence to wait for the right proposal and how to identify the right fit. The Strata Council & the Property Management company were so excited that we chose them. We are now living our dream by the ocean in Port Moody at a condominium building with 150 units. We have a beautiful 2 bedroom apartment with a huge patio, 5 appliances in a beautifully appointed Polygon building. We are steps from the ocean in an idyllic and interesting mix of urban and rural setting with tons of parks, lakes and trails. Our job allows us to stay out of the daily commute, we get lots of time to work on writing and painting as we are both artists and writers. The pay is excellent and we can finally afford to get married!
    • Nancy Nicholls

      Nancy Nicholls

      Just shortly after graduating from RMTI, I was able to secure a fabulous position with Maple Leaf Self Storage, as Store Manager/Resident Manager. I also was lucky that this included a 2 bedroom, 2 bath, suite which includes 5 appliances and is brand new. When I first did my research on your company to take the Certified Residential Mangers Course, I was diligent in ensuring that my money was going to a reputable company and that I would get the training that I knew I needed to get a good job. Not only did I get my money’s worth, I got much more than that. The course is recognized, and I know that it helped me to secure my position.

      Alex Yuen

      We started the RMTI course in September and have finished it as well as the Swimming Pool course. From September to December we already had six interviews for jobs from buildings ranging from 60 suites to 250 suites. The companies were very impressed with our qualifications and we got three job offers. Finally we choose a 194 suite building. We would like to thank you for providing us with this opportunity.

      Arturo Neyra & Nila Nesterenko

      We took the RMTI and CSPO courses and are thankful we did. We got a job managing a 216 suite high rise. Anyone who wishes to do this type of work should take this course.
    • Pamela & John Simpson

      Pamela & John Simpson

      My husband, John, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff and for all your assistance during and after the completion of the RMTI course. We found it to be a very informative and in depth source of information, so much so that the manual is now a permanent fixture in our new office. We recently commenced our new position in a large senior’s complex. The building is a 15 – storey structure with 188 suites. There is a lot of hustle and bustle around here as we have many activities for our tenants but we love every minute of our new career. The certificate program is invaluable to anyone desiring to enter into this line of employment and we would highly recommend your program and Institute to anyone wishing to do so. Once again, thank you for all your assistance and support. It was greatly appreciated.
    • Sheila and Wayne Coulbourn

      Sheila and Wayne Coulbourn

      Wayne and I graduated from RMTI and have been employed in the same building for the ten years. During that time we have continued on with education relevant to the industry. With the ever changing tenancy issues, health and safety standards, updated fire code and earthquake preparedness, education must be a ongoing part of our responsibilities as managers. The RMTI course is the best way to learn about the industry and it’s affordable!
    • Brenda Oram

      Brenda Oram

      I applied for a job in January and I told the company I was taking the RMTI course and they hired me while I was taking it. I found the manual very helpful. Thank you very much and I’m now very interested in taking the CSPO course. I’ll send in my application form.
    • Roger Soley

      Roger Soley

      I took the RMTI course after I was laid off in the Forest Industry. I found the course interesting and easy to follow. My current employer only wanted an RMTI graduate and I was lucky to be first in line. I really enjoy the job, something different every day. We have a very nice apartment, good tenants, a good boss, and I don’t have to travel to work! I would recommend the course to everyone who enjoys flexibility and working with a variety of people.

      David Pitts, Property Manager, Gateway Property Management Corporation

      I recently hired a RMTI graduate for a resident manager position in Vancouver. This is his first entry into building management, yet he has easily adapted to his new career, and is working well with tenants, contractors and management. Good building staff are hard to find, but I believe my recent hire will be a valuable long-term employee.

      I am a council member of a prestigious strata community in Richmond, BC. We placed an advertisement for a building manager position with RMTI, we received quite a number of qualified RMTI graduates applied for the job and we have awarded the position to one of the applicants. Thank you very much for RMTI’s assistance in helping us on searching for a successful candidate to fill our available position.

      Thank you for the job link service. Last Friday we hired one of the RMTI grads that responded to the ad so it is now appropriate to remove it from your site.

      Mauro Conzatti, President, Amethhyst Holdings Ltd.

      Amethyst Holdings Ltd. is a small family held management and development company with operations in British Columbia and Manitoba. Along with managing our own rental residential buildings we develop small to medium properties. We have had several occasions where we hired RMTI graduates with great success. In one instance, after gaining experience with us for 2 and one half years, a new graduate from RMTI went on to manage a large housing project in Romania. A second employee went from managing 2 small apartments in Vancouver to managing 244 suites in Winnipeg. We are pleased with our experience with your graduates and look forward to working with more qualified graduates from RMTI.

    • Dave Brown, Property Manager

      Dave Brown, Property Manager

      I prefer to hire RMTI graduates without previous experience for our buildings as they come to the industry with a fresh outlook. The ones I have hired in the past have worked out well.
    • Scott Reid, Property Manager

      Scott Reid, Property Manager

      Our industry is inundated with people who think they can run buildings who only see the superficial duties and do not understand most of the underlying factors which make for a good, well-run building. The RMTI course brings these underlying factors to the surface so that new people in the field are aware of what is expected of them. When hiring new people the RMTI certificate is given a positive consideration in the final analysis.
    • Ron J. Harvie, Property Manager

      Ron J. Harvie, Property Manager

      We consider that any prospective managers who have taken this course have a greater asset to offer their employer. As a Property Manager for 20 years, I highly recommend this course.

      Aldo Gazzola, Apartment Building Owner

      This letter will serve to confirm that I have hired a number of managers from the RMTI course. All of them have worked out very well and have obviously been well trained by RMTI.
    • Kathy McLeod, Property Manager

      Kathy McLeod, Property Manager

      This acknowledges our awareness and the necessity of the RMTI course you offer. As the owner of residential apartments, we are continually in need of personnel. In fact, we have people working for us who, when hired, were without experience but had taken your course.
