The RPA program that I have recently completed has been an amazing journey. The information and knowledge gained has been invaluable and I will take them with me as I look forward to new challenges and successes. Additionally, participation in the RPA program significantly helped to expand my professional network through classroom interaction. I would recommend the RPA courses to anyone wanting to increase their knowledge of the commercial property management industry.
