All community association managers are required to successfully complete a nationally-recognized course on community association management. Anyone initially registered on or after October 1, 2012, must complete the course within one year of registration. CAI's M-100 course is a prerequisite course that is available in seminar and online formats.
Community association managers who receive their initial registration after October 1, 2012, as well as those who were registered before then and have been registered for less than 10 years, are required to pass an examination, with the same deadlines as required for completing the course outlined above. The exam may be the CAMICB's CMCA or a similar examination that the Department commissioner prescribes in regulations.
More information is available in the Government and Public Affairs section of the CAI website.
