PMDP Course Retesting Now Available Online
We’ve now made it more convenient for members who have not passed a course to retest. We know how important an Illinois Community Association Manager License is to you. Previously students had to arrange a date a time with an exam administrator to retest and now they can retest from the convenience of their home or office. This applies to those students that took the test online or in person. See the attached CAI Course Retest Request Form. If you have questions contact Jake Gold at

* NOTE *

CMCA = Certified Manager of Community Associations (this is a certification thru CAM-ICB)

CAM = Community Association Manager (is the terminology the State of IL is using for a licensed manager)

All PMDP courses are registered through CAI-National

You can register on-line through the “CAI-National” link above or by phone by calling CAI National at 888-224-4321

Due to overwhelming popularity of these courses, we ask that you please register as far in advance as possible in order to guarantee a seat. Seating is limited to the first 35 registrants, and CAI recommends that you register at least one month in advance of the course to allow time for processing and for CAI National to forward any pre-reading materials, if necessary.
