RCM Requirements & Application
HOW TO EARN YOUR RCM
The Registered Condominium Manager (RCM)® designation is NOT the same as a General Licence, which is issued by the Condominium Management Regulatory Authority of Ontario (CMRAO). While some of the General Licence and RCM criteria are similar, the RCM is a voluntary professional designation which exceeds minimum licensing requirements and represents the gold standard in condominium management. To become an RCM, you must:
- Hold a valid General Licence issued by CMRAO.
- Be an Individual Member of ACMO.
- Write the comprehensive RCM exam and achieve an overall grade of at least 75%. Note that the RCM exam can be written prior to achieving the experience requirements noted below.
- Have at least two consecutive years of experience in condominium property management, completing the required tasks as outlined on the RCM Designation form.
- Have two sponsors (a CEO/VP/Regional Manager of your company and one RCM) willing to attest that you have met these experience requirements.
