International cmca examination
What is the CMCA?
The Certified Manager of Community Associations (CMCA®) is the only international certification program designed exclusively for managers of homeowner and condominium associations and cooperatives. The CMCA recognizes individuals who have demonstrated the fundamental knowledge required to manage community associations. Association homeowners, board members, and management companies seek qualified professionals to manage their communities. Obtaining the CMCA certification will give you and your employer confidence that you have the specialized skills they need.
The CMCA Examination is a 2.5-hour, 120-question multiple-choice exam that tests candidates in eight knowledge domains:
- Governance, Legal and Ethical Conduct
- Budgets, Reserves, Investments, and Assessments
- Financial Controls
- Risk Management and Insurance
- Property Maintenance
- Human Resources

Option 2, Experience: If you have at least five years’ experience as a community association manager, you may receive a one-time waiver of the prerequisite course. The experience must be as a community association manager—not as an assistant manager. If you do not successfully pass the examination the first time, you will be required to take the prerequisite course prior to retaking the examination.
Option 3, License or Credential: You can establish eligibility if you hold an active license or credential from any of the following states: Arizona (CAAM), California (CCAM), Florida (FLCAM), Illinois (ILCAM), or Nevada (NVCAM).
