CAI is adding a 17th course to its Professional Management Development Program. Ethics (M-300), an online course that focuses on the nature of ethical standards and how they apply to community management, is the eighth 300-level course offered by CAI.
Available in early 2013, the interactive course will teach students to apply the CAI’s Designation Code of Ethics for Management, examine the fundamental ethical responsibilities of a professional manager, resolve potential conflicts of interest, identify appropriate responses to the potential receipt of gifts and other remuneration, and identify situations where disclosure is necessary.
“Issues of ethics are not always black and white,” says David Jennings, CAI’s vice president of education. “If you’ve been in association management long enough, you know there are difficult gray areas. This course will help community managers navigate these difficult situations and avoid embarrassing and even career-threatening mistakes.”
Managers who take the course earn credits toward their CMCA certification. The NBC-CAM CMCA Continuing Education Review Committee has approved the M-300 Ethics course for six hours of CMCA continuing education credit.
