This is the industry's first apprenticeship program for community association managers and is intended to serve as a talent pipeline, matching industry-leading community management companies with highly motivated and trainable community association manager candidates. The apprenticeship program combines classroom and online instruction through Arapahoe Community College with on-the-job training, to be provided by community management companies, which will employ these apprentices. The intent of the program is to provide community management companies with better access to talent and to reduce their cost of employee turnover. 

(CAI-RMC) has partnered with Arapahoe Community College (ACC) to develop a Community Association Manager Apprenticeship program designed to attract new talent through a unique earn while you learn opportunity. ACC is providing the related instruction, and it will consist of 5 semesters of online and hybrid coursework while the apprentices are working at least 32-40 hours a week. Apprentices that successfully complete the program will earn their CMCA credential, AMS credential, ACC Business Administration Certificate, and a Department of Labor Apprenticeship Certificate. Apprentices are required to work a minimum of 32-40 hours per week at their employer under the supervision and guidance of an apprenticeship mentor. Apprentices are hired in as new entry level Community Association Apprentices with an employer partner. Apprentices have the earning and benefit potential of $18-$22 an hour throughout the program with a minimum wage progression as they earn their credentials.
