The CAMICB Board of Commissioners approved a new continuing education policy for individuals seeking CMCA recertification. The policy is as follows:
CMCA recertification requires the completion of 16 hours of continuing education within a two-year certification period. Current CAMICB policy states credit hours may be earned only for education that meets either of the following criteria:
- It pertains to community association operations or management
- It contributes to the professional development of the CMCA
Further continuing education credit specifications include:
- Educational courses are offered by approved course providers.
- One half of the continuing education credits may be obtained through in-house training courses.
- Local law seminars and local college or university courses pertaining to accounting, business practices, computers, or foreign language will count toward the continuing education requirement
- Courses related to buying and selling real estate are not acceptable.
- Self-study credit must be pre-approved by CAMICB and is limited to no more than four hours every two years.
- Teaching a course related to community association management can qualify for credit.
- Publishing an article in a regional or national community association publication may qualify for credit.
- One hour of credit equals one hour attended.
- Credit for a course may only be submitted one time per recertification cycle.
- Online learning must be interactive. Interactive coursework is defined as requiring proof of participation.
