What You’ll Learn

CAM Prelicensure Course Subject Matter

This part provides an overview of the community association concept, an explanation of the laws that govern and effect community associations. You will also learn how the governing documents work
The community association is a lot like a government. You have to know about membership meetings, voting and election procedures, board meetings and committee meetings. The course also covers the rights and duties of the membership and the board
The financial operations of the community associations are established in the budget, which covers operating expenses and capital expenditures and deferred maintenance. In addition, we cover financial reporting taxes and employment laws.
The course provides instruction in the requirements for insurance as related to association property and unit owner property. Also covered are general liability insurance issues, directors and officers liability insurance, fidelity bonds and more
This section covers human resource management topics, maintenance programs, maintenance contracts, maintenance standards, the rights of the association to restrict owner rights and arbitration of disputes. Also covered are special, statutory provisions related to fire safety, elevators, pools, security guards and pest control.


In order to receive a community association manager license, an individual must submit
an application to the DBPR and complete
an 16 hour prelicensure course.

Florida CAM State Exam Online Preparation Course

Gray Systems, Inc. provides this online course to help candidates for the Florida Community Association Manager license prepare for the state examination. This course is ideal for students who have taken a prelicensure course with another provider, but need a thorough review before taking the exam.

You’ve heard of practice tests and flash cards…. these, while somewhat helpful, can quickly become “dated” and more than likely do not reflect the latest changes and updates to Florida statutes and codes.  GSI makes sure the Online Review material is always current and contains the latest changes in the laws and rules.

The online review course is just $99 and allows you to use the Review for 90 days.   Please note that this Online Review does not satisfy the requirement for the 16 hour prelicensure course and a certificate of attendance will not be issued for those taking this Online Review. This certificate of attendance for the required 16 hour prelicensure course is available only through our prelicensure zoom class.

Note: If you have already ordered the CAM Prelicensure Zoom Class course, the Online review is already available for you to use for free.
