In 2017, the Minister of Government and Consumer Services designated the courses and challenge exams developed by the Association of Condominium Managers of Ontario (ACMO) as the education and examination requirements necessary to qualify for a General Licence. On November 1, 2021, this requirement will transfer to the Registrar of the CMRAO. The following documents were created in the process of developing new education requirements.
The Competency Profile defines the condominium management profession in Ontario and details the minimum expectations of an individual applying for a General Licence with the CMRAO. This report describes the 79 competencies, as well as the methodology used.
The Curriculum Design and Course Blueprint for Condominium Managers in Ontario 2020 describes the methodology used to develop the curriculum roadmap and the six new course blueprints that form the new education program. The curriculum roadmap identifies the design principles that guided the creation of the new curriculum, and the course blueprints provide details about how condominium management courses should be designed and delivered to ensure they provide learners with the necessary knowledge and skills to meet the requirements of the Competency Profile.
- All applicants for a General Licence who have enrolled in or have completed any of the original educational requirements for a General Licence prior to November 1, 2021, AND who successfully complete all of these requirements by October 31, 2022, will be deemed to have complied with the educational requirements for a General Licence.
- The Request for Prior Learning (RPL) assessment process for all applicants for a licence on or after November 1, 2021, will be based on the new educational program.
- All applicants for a Limited Licence who apply for a licence on or after November 1, 2021, shall complete the “Excellence in Condominium Management” course as part of their application. Applicants will be required to successfully complete this course in order to be granted a Limited Licence.
- All applicants for a General Licence who have enrolled in or have completed any of the original educational requirements for a General Licence prior to November 1, 2021, AND have not successfully completed all of these requirements by October 31, 2022, will be subject to the new educational requirements set by the Registrar.
The CMRAO will prescribe annual continuing education programs for licensees.
