One of the main benefits of being a BOMA Boston member is our commitment to education. BOMA Boston partners with BOMI International to offer a variety of professional designations for property managers, facility managers and building engineers.

BOMA Boston and BOMI are two separate organizations who work together to provide the best opportunities for further education in the real estate industry. BOMA Boston is pleased to offer courses in the following designations through BOMI International:
Real Property Administrator (RPA®)
BOMI International’s RPA designation program serves the educational needs of both third-party property managers and corporate property managers. By becoming familiar with the many facets of operating a commercial building, the RPA designation program assists you in integrating these issues into the broader task of property management. You will gain the insight and knowledge necessary to analyze a building in its entirety: from the basics of building design, operation and maintenance, to the specialized areas of commercial property law and risk management, marketing and asset management. The RPA program teaches you to maximize a building’s net income while minimizing risks, thereby enhancing your standing in the industry and positioning you for long-term success and achievement.
To earn the RPA designation, you are required to complete seven mandatory courses, plus one elective course. You do not have to take the courses in any specific order; however, if you are new to BOMI’s curriculum, we recommend you begin with subject matter you are already familiar with and save new material for later study. This will ensure immediate success in your professional development. . Learn More About the RPA Designation
