October 22, 2019 (Chicago, Ill) – The Realtors® Land Institute and CCIM Institute, both commercial affiliates of the National Association of Realtors®, are working together to elevate the prestige of their designees with the approval of the Accredited Land Consultant (ALC) Designation into the CCIM Fast Track criteria. With its approval, real estate professionals who hold RLI’s elite ALC Designation can now earn the esteemed CCIM designation at an accelerated pace as a Fast Track Institute Candidate member. Given their proven expertise and experience in commercial transactions, an ALC can now earn the CCIM designation without needing to meet the traditional elective credit and portfolio requirements.
“Our organization could not be more excited to see the acceptance of our elite designation into the CCIM Fast Track. This mutually beneficial move is a great show of the credibility each designation offers to those who earn them. We truly value the partnership between our organizations and the benefit it brings to commercial real estate agents across the industry,” stated RLI CEO Aubrie Kobernus, MBA, RCE.
“The ALC designation is a welcome addition to CCIM Institute’s Fast Track Membership program,” stated CCIM Institute CEO Gregory J. Fine, FASAE, CAE. “If an ALC is looking to expand their already impressive wealth of knowledge and experience, a CCIM designation in commercial investment real estate is the perfect complement. We look forward to sharing the good news with the RLI community.”
The CCIM designation has long been an approved certification for RLI’s ALC Designation Fast Track. As part of the ALC Fast Track, real estate professionals holding the CCIM designation can earn the ALC without needing to meet the full 104 credit hours of the education requirement.
