JAREC has established a training curriculum designed to acquire comprehensive knowledge and skills required for property strategies, including Corporate Real Estate(CRE) and Public Real Estate(PRE) strategies, in a short term.
Those individuals who participated and completed the curriculum and were found eligible after screening shall be certified and registered as“ JAREC Certified Advisor for Property Strategy.”
“JAREC Certified Advisor for Property Strategy” is a private certification system to educate and accredit specialists who work in the context of driving property strategies directly tied to management or business plan in corporate, organization or government sectors or third-party professionals who support them.
This certification system by the Association is the only available system that provides comprehensive yet focused training curriculum and certification for specialists. The importance of CRE or PRE strategy is gradually being recognized by the people in the industry through guidelines by MLIT, various publications and seminars, but in reality there is an overwhelming shortage of qualified professionals who can actually plan and execute these strategies.
The business environment surrounding real estate merger and acquisitions or corporations are rapidly changing, and there is also heightened demand for effective use of public real estate from the perspective of management of governmental bodies. Against these backdrops, the demand for property strategy specialists is expected to grow even further.
