"When I started in the industry, I never understood the importance of NAAEI Designations. I began my career as a leasing consultant and was promoted to a Community Manager two years later. I was able to work hard for my company, but I didn't work smart. Once I earned my CAM Designation, things finally clicked. I was able to be self-sufficient, make confident decisions, and ensure that I had a long future in the industry."

The format of all NAAEI credential exams has changed. All NAAEI exams are now proctored. This new policy means that credential candidates must take their exams either onsite at a SEFAA testing facility with a trained and qualified affiliate proctor, or on their own computers via live online proctoring (LOP).
In addition, both the CAM and CAPS programs now feature a one-part exam. Because of this change, all current CAM and CAPS candidates who need to take or retake their exams have been issued a new exam eligibility code to direct them to the new version of the exam. Any previously generated CAM or CAPS code will no longer work to schedule an exam. Please contact SEFAA to receive new codes for CAM and CAPS exams. The new exam codes will be linked on the dashboard to the CAM Comprehensive Exam or the CAPS Comprehensive Exam.
The eligibility codes for the NALP, CAMT, CAS, and IROP exams have not changed; however, candidates for these credentials must now log onto the Castle scheduling site to schedule their exams.
Advance notice is not required to schedule exams being taken via LOP. Candidates who are rescheduling their canceled or failed exams will follow the same scheduling instructions. Retake and reschedule fees have increased, they are as follows:
Fees to retake a failed exam are as follows:
- CAM and CAPS -- $100
- CAS, IROP -- $60
- CAMT -- $55
- NALP -- $50
- Micro-credentials -- $50
These fees will be charged to the candidate upon login to the scheduling site. The seven-day waiting period between exam retakes remains in effect.
