RCM Exam - Pursue a Higher Standard


Once you have completed the necessary educational requirements, you are eligible to write the RCM comprehensive exam immediately. Writing the exam right after you have completed the education requirements will increase your potential for success as the material will be fresh, and you will be experienced at exam writing. Your exam results will be held on file with ACMO, and once you have completed working as a condominium manager for two years (meeting all the requirements), you may apply for your RCM Designation.

To write the RCM exam, you must be an Individual Member in good standing of ACMO (if you are not a member, please complete the membership application and submit it with your payment).

The RCM examination is a 3.5 hour-long closed book exam that is written and proctored online. The exam has been prepared by experts in the field of Condominium Management and is designed to ensure that Condominium Property Managers in Ontario are fully qualified professionals with broad expertise and knowledge in this field. The exam focuses on the following four areas: Condominium Law, Financial Planning, Physical Building Management and Administration and Human Relations.
