Promoting the Profession
This year’s 9-month digital advertising campaign featuring Google search and display ads and LinkedIn ads generated a whopping 6 million digital impressions and over 33,600 click-throughs to the ACMO website.

Another Successful ACMO Certificate Course in the Books
On September 21st, 2022, ACMO presented the “Advanced Plumbing and Water Management” Certificate Course with 59 condominium managers participating. The 3-hour online course was led by instructor Adam Bartman, Executive VP of Field Operations at Eddy Solutions. The certificate course was very well received, with 92% of participants suggesting that they would recommend the course to their peers and 94.5% suggesting it represented very good to excellent value.
One participant noted, “I was very happy with the practical application of the contents. Most of the webinars are based in theoretical talks.” Another participant shared that the course was “very informative and a great way to learn. Adam was fantastic in his presentation. Adam makes a complicated and “hidden” core of the building matter on plumbing so precisely and easily understandable. Thumbs up to the team for organizing it.”
The ACMO Certificate Program consists of a series of continuing education courses providing a higher level of knowledge in specific condominium management topics in alignment with the CMRAO Competency Profile. Gaining a certificate builds on the knowledge managers acquired through the RCM program and further differentiates them from those who only get the minimum General Licence. Starting in 2023, successfully completing Certificate Courses will become a requirement for those wishing to obtain the RCM designation.
ACMO will continue to introduce more courses under the Certificate Program covering a wide range of topics condominium managers need to stay current and competitive in today’s market.
