COS Prep - Live Webinar

Improve your chances for success in COS

Certified Occupancy Specialist (COS) is a challenging course. Those who attend the class are often new to the industry or their position, so they are walking into a strange new world of unfamiliar concepts and terminology. And because many property management companies require staff to pass the COS exam, the prospect of taking the class can become even more intimidating.

Don’t walk in cold!

Imagine how much more confident you could be walking into class if you already understood how the course is structured, how to navigate around the reference material, and how to perform the basic calculations that figure prominently in the COS exam! If that is an advantage you’d like to have, then you should plan to attend our monthly COS Prep class online.
