Commercial Certified Mortgage Servicer Designation Program

Commercial Mortgage Servicing is the backbone of the commercial real estate finance industry. A career in Commercial Mortgage Servicing is exciting, challenging and continually evolving. Leaders in the industry must have a thorough understanding of commercial real estate and mortgage fundamentals, including lending, underwriting, closing, servicing, asset management, valuation and default management. A command of legal and regulatory requirements, market behaviors and operations is also required. Whether you are a servicer, asset manager, accountant, technology professional, attorney, special servicer or a combination of many of these functions, the CCMS designation will set you apart. The designation is a symbol of professionalism and commitment to servicing and recognizes a thorough understanding of the changing, complex and challenging commercial mortgage servicing industry. CCMS designees demonstrate high levels of achievement and command respect due to their professional accomplishments, as well as their unparalleled knowledge of mortgage servicing.
