About the courses and what will be offered:

Condominium Director Certificate Program - 105 - Reserve Fund Fundamentals

Are you ready to learn about reserve funds?

A healthy reserve fund is critical to the long-term success of a condominium property. In this course, participants will learn about the process for obtaining a reserve fund study, what information is required, who can complete the study, and how to deal with major contribution increases.

Additionally, participants will learn about eligible expenditures for condominium reserve funds. This course is essential for anyone who wants to ensure their property is financially secure.

In this course, the participants will be introduced to the reserve fund study process; how to obtain a study and what it should contain. Participants will also learn about which expenditures are reserve fund eligible, and know what the options are when facing contribution increases. They'll also learn how to successfully implement a funding plan.

Condominium Director Certificate Program - 106 - Meeting Fundamentals

Are you ready to learn about condominium meeting fundamentals? 

This course will look at the steps required to call and hold a meeting of owners and suggest some best practices to make those meetings interesting, informative, and effective. It will also describe what makes a quorum and how to handle all types of voting including proxies. 

This course is essential in ensuring that owner's voices are heard and that you are able to communicate effectively.

In this course, the participants will learn about Meetings of Owners: Annual General Meetings, Requisition Meetings, and Special Meetings. The course will also look at what you need to know about Directors' Meetings (aka Board Meetings).

Condominium Director Certificate Program - 107 - Record, Return and Certificate Fundamentals

Are you ready to learn about records, returns, and certificates? 

This course will review the obligations of condominium corporations in relation to retention and access to records, information certificates, status certificates and CAO annual returns.

In this course, the participants will learn about records: core and non-core records, retention periods, access to records. Participants will also learn about Status certificates including information required, cost of preparation, who can request, timing, and importance. The course also discusses the various information certificates that the corporation must provide, as well as the annual CAO filings.

Condominium Director Certificate Program - 108 - Repairs, Maintenance, and Change Fundamentals

Are you ready to learn about repairs, maintenance, and changes to the common elements? 

The Act differentiates between “maintain”, “repair” and “repair after damage”. This course will explain the differences and the importance of each of these ideas. Both professionally managed and self-managed condominium corporations have an obligation to ensure that the condominium is maintained. This course will also discuss obligations when changes are made to the common elements; by the corporation or by the unit owners. 

This course is essential in understanding if the responsibility for maintenance lies with the unit owner or the condominium corporation, since the responsibility can vary from condominium to condominium, depending on their declaration.

In this course, participants will learn about repair and maintenance obligations to the common elements, the standard unit and to improvements. They will also learn the very specific requirements of Section 97 and of the Condominium Act, pertaining to changes made to the common elements.
