Community Association Manager License Renewal Questions & Answers

How often do I need to renew my license?

All community association managers’ licenses expire September 30 of every even-numbered year. The next license renewal dates is September 30, 2018.

I received my license after October 1, 2016. Do I need to complete any continuing education prior to September 30, 2018.

No. If you are licensed during the period of October 1, 2016 and September 30, 2018, you DO NOT need any continuing education for your first license renewal. 

My license expired two or more years ago, and is now null and void. How do I become a licensed community association manager again?

You may petition for reinstatement of a null and void license if you failed to renew your license due to unusual hardship or illness. If the council denies reinstatement, you will be required to reapply for licensure as a new applicant, including pre-licensure education. You are not, however, required to take the state examination again.

I am not using my community association manager license. Can I place my license in an inactive status?

Yes, you may place your license in an inactive status. You may do this at renewal time for an inactive renewal fee of $105.00; or you may submit a request, at any time other than the renewal period, along with your original license and a change of status fee of $15.00.

How can I reactivate my inactive license?

For each year or any portion of the year your license is inactive, you must complete 10 classroom hours of continuing education. This total includes two hours for the legal update seminar for the year you are reactivating.

I have just received my community association manager license. Will I be required to comply with the continuing education requirements for my first license renewal?

All licensees who are licensed as a CAM for more than 24 months at renewal time will be required to complete the full continuing education requirements. The term more than 24 months means being licensed 24 months plus one day. Licensees who are licensed for 24 months or less at renewal time are exempt from CE renewal requirements until the end of the next renewal cycle.

What are the continuing education requirements for renewal?

All Florida CAM licensees must complete 20 hours of CAM Continuing Education during each license renewal period. The next deadline for completing the 20 Hours of CAM Continuing Education is September 30, 2018. Click here to see our CAM Continuing Education Course 2017 dates and locations.
