This practice covers the creation of a set of guiding principles to be used when establishing a formal training and development program for professional employees engaged in the practice of property management.
This practice sets forth the consensus of the personal property management profession with regard to the requirements for a Personal Property Career Development (PPCD) program.
The acceptance of this practice by the profession has the potential to encourage a broader and higher level of thinking by its practitioners, reinforce the use of innovative and cost-effective practices, create greater commonality between government and industry practices, and increase the ability of organizations to respond to changing needs and business conditions.
The PPCD program establishes the recommended education, training, and experience requisites necessary for property management organizations to adequately support the missions and objectives of organizations operating in or encouraging domestic and global commerce.
The PPCD program is predicated on three levels of professional certification based on a combination of academic course work and professional experience.
The standard is written to recognize that there are numerous educational providers of courses that may satisfy the career development objectives articulated under this standard. It is the responsibility of each organization which adopts this standard to confirm the appropriateness of any specific course offering.
