Residential Renovation Project Manager Program


We have all heard horror stories about someone's disastrous renovation, or watched a DIY renovation show that invariably has the same dismal ending; a major problem was uncovered during the renovation, the homeowner was asked to spend more money, forfeit part of the renovation, live with the consequences or sell their property below market value! Certainly not desirable results. We can change that.

The Residential Renovation Project Manager(RRPM) Certification Program consists of two-3 hour webinar sessions targeted to audiences who:
  1. Have some experience managing a residential renovation project and want to enhance their education in order to expand their business to include larger residential or commercial projects
  2. Are home stagers, color consultants, interior designers and/or decorators who, having formed business relationships with their clients, are being asked to manage small and large renovations This course teaches the process from conception to completion
  3. Are home owners who want to understand the renovation process in order to confidently manage their own renovation; maintaining control over the project, reducing onsite delays and eliminating faulty workmanship
  4. Have experienced an unsuccessful renovation and are determined to never permit their lack of knowledge to negatively impact future renovations

"A successful renovation is much more than hiring a guy with a crew, a truck and some tools."
The key to success is knowing and managing all the steps in between and being able to understand clients’ needs, keeping within budget and communicating effectively with contractors, trades and suppliers while following the written contract.

Join Debrah Boucher, Certified Staging Professional, Certified Interior Decorator, Founder and President of DB Interiors and former President of the Ottawa Real Estate Investment Organization (OREIO) for this 2 session, 6 hour webinar program as she teaches her Systematic 3 Phase Process, following each component of a renovation project from conception to completion. This program earns you 4 CEC's towards your Masters.
