CPM candidates can quickly and efficiently complete Step 3: Test of the CPM journey by enrolling in the CPM Capstone. However, before you take the CPM Capstone, it is strongly recommended that you complete the CPM courses as outline in Step 2: Learning.
The CPM Capstone is a two-part final assessment:
Part 1: Management Plan Skills Assessment (MPSA)
MPSA Prep – a two-day classroom (virtual or in-person) intensive to review concepts learned throughout your IREM education and is led by an IREM instructor.
MPSA Exam – a four-hour exam completed online with a live online proctor comprised of complex multiple choice, multi-select, and short answer questions. The MPSA Exam assesses your ability to conduct several real-world analyses and make recommendations aligned with ownership goals using a variety of scenarios and property types, including office buildings, conventional apartments, and retail strip shopping centers.
The MPSA Exam must be taken within seven days after the MPSA Prep. To pass the exam, a score of 70% or better is needed. This exam is taken with a live online proctor (LOP). For more information about live online proctoring, click here.
