The Institute is offered twice a year, and runs Sunday through Thursday evening. The Institute curriculum is composed of four core areas:
- General Administration & Management
- Maintenance & Operations
- Energy & Utilities
- Planning, Design & Construction
Institute students select one core area which will be the focus of their classes for that week. Morning classes consist of required courses, centering on the core area selected. Afternoon classes will be electives chosen by the student and may be a combination from any of the four core areas.
Upon completing the week-long session, students will receive a certificate of completion designating their core area of study and 3.0 continuing education units (CEUs).
To receive maximum benefit, APPA recommends that students work towards graduation from the full Institute program by completing all four core areas. In order to graduate, students must complete all of these areas. Students are awarded a plaque recognizing their achievement upon successful completion of the program.
Tuition for this week long program is $1395 (members) or $1895 (non-members).
The Institute curriculum and each of the four core areas are comprised of both required and elective course offerings. For more information and a complete listing of featured courses, please visit Course Offerings.
