Whether you are a new or experienced manager, by earning your CAM credential you can improve your financial management skills, ability to report financial performance, and management of your onsite team. Earning your CAM allows you to demonstrate that you have the knowledge and ability to manage an apartment community and achieve owners' investment goals. The onsite manager is a vital link between apartment residents and the community owners and investors. NAAEI developed the CAM program to assist apartment industry professionals in advancing their apartment management career.


What students are saying:

"In 2008, I decided to earn my CAM designation to better myself and my career.  I feel that earning this designation helps me stand out among my peers. It not only taught me a new way to look at the apartment industry but it forces me to stay up to date on my education."
Monica Sommers, Property Manager, First Communities
