Interested in becoming a Community Association Manager (CAM)? Gold Coast is South Florida’s established leader in CAM Pre-license, exam preparation, and continuing education courses.  Our highly successful CAM program has helped thousands of South Florida students pass their exam and carry the knowledge they acquired into careers as successful Community Association Managers.

Gold Coast's Pre-License course includes:

  • Our exclusive copyrighted course manual "Master The CAM-EXAM"
  • Two days of exciting and informative classroom instruction
  • Numerous "Exam-Type" practice questions and tests
  • Free unlimited review for up to one year
  • All courses are taught by licensed Community Association Managers and/or attorneys

By nature, Florida is an attractive place for people to purchase/rent properties including condominiums, apartments, and homes where a community association is present.  This opens up many market opportunities for licensed CAM’s to generate substantial income.

The Board of Directors of a community association has the obligation to maintain, manage, and operate the community to serve its residents.  Often, though not required by law, the Board of Directors hires a CAM, who must be licensed by the state, to carry out these tasks.

* Many Real Estate licensees and appraisers are generating additional income by getting their CAM license.

Proceed to Requirements for more details:

There are several common questions associated with CAM License requirements.  These are addressed below: 

How do I get a CAM license?

  • Applicants must be 18 years of age
  • Achieved a high school diploma or equivalent
  • Must have good moral character (as defined by state law)
  • Complete 18 hours of Pre-License education (Gold Coast’s CAM Pre licensing course fulfills this)
  • Pass the state exam
  • Pass a criminal background check and submit electronic fingerprints

Who is required to get a CAM license?

  • Anyone who performs “management services” for a residential community association with more than 10 units or an annual budget, or budgets of more than $100,000, and is doing so for compensation.
  • Managements services performed include controlling or disbursing funds, preparing budgets or conducting meetings, coordinating maintenance, and other day-to-day services involved with the operation of a community association. 

Who does NOT need a CAM license?

  • A person who performs clerical or maintenance functions under the direct supervision and control of a licensed manager and who does not assist in providing any management services.
  • A person performing these services without compensation, such as a board member or officer.
  • If you are performing any management functions for non-residential properties.
