Announcing the 2017 Online Course Rebate Program

Take online courses and earn cash for your chapter!

Starting January 1, 2017, IREM NM will earn $100 for every student who registers for a qualifying online credentialing course and lists IREM NM as the referrer at the time of registration. (In 2016 and for several years prior, chapters earned a flat $25 rebate for every online course registration by students from that chapter.)

Here’s how the 2017 program works:

IREM education is available in both classroom and online formats. Remember, IREM courses are not just for those seeking an IREM credential – it is valuable education for any real estate management professional, whatever their career goals!

When you take online courses, list your chapter as the referrer when they register on – there is a drop down box from which you can choose your chapter.
Each time that happens, IREM NM earns $100. It’s that simple. The chapter listed as the referrer will receive credit for the rebate, regardless of the student’s location or assigned chapter.

Rebates will be processed and paid at the beginning of each month for the previous month.
The following courses qualify for rebates:

  • Managing Condominium and Homeowners Associations (CID201)
  • Leading a Winning Property Management Team (HRS402)
