Manager Education

CAI's Manager Education Program consists of local seminars and national Professional Management Development Program courses designed specifically for the continuing education of community association managers. These programs are especially intended for managers interested in professional development, and those managers who are interested in achieving a CAI professional manager designation or re-certifications. Educational classes hosted by CAI are among the only vehicles for continuing education credits for the Professional Community Association Manager designation. Most seminars hosted by business partner members do not qualify for PCAM credits.
