Connecticut Manager Licensing

Attention all Connecticut Managers:

On October 1, 2012, new legal requirements went into effect that regulate who may manage a community association. Managers registered in Connecticut for less than ten years must complete a nationally-recognized course in common interest community management and pass the National Board of Certification for Community Association Managers (NBC-CAM) Certified Manager of Community Associations (CMCA) examination, or a similar board approved examination. Upon registration with the state Department of Consumer Protections (DCP), applicants must also answer a question about whether they have ever been convicted of a felony, regardless of the jurisdiction. Those managers seeking to register for the first time must also submit to a state and national criminal background check before they can successfully receive their certification.

Community Associations Institute (CAI) M-100:  The Essentials of Community Association Management course is a prerequisite course that is available classroom style, on-line or home-study. Completing the M-100 is the easiest way to be eligible to sit for the CMCA examination and fulfill the state’s requirements. Click here for more information on CMCA examination.

What do I need to do and when do I have to register?

A: If you have been registered as a manager for more than ten years, you must complete the nationally recognized course on community association management; however, you are exempt from the examination requirements.

A: If you have been registered with the DCP as a manager for less than ten years, you will have two years, or until October 1, 2014, to complete the course and examination.

A: If you are registering for the first time after October 1, 2012, you will have one year to complete the course and examination.

If you have any questions, please contact CAI’s Government & Public Affairs Department (703.970.9220), the CAI Connecticut Chapter  (860-657-9035 or or NBC-CAM (703.970.9300) at anytime.
