NCAHAM Certification

In the fall of 1985 the NCAHAM Board agreed that a certification exam was needed to provide professional accreditation at the state level. In June of 1986 the first Certified Access Manager (CAM) exam was administered at the annual convention in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Today, the CAM is administered annually at the NCAHAM Educational Conference. Over 50% of NCAHAM members are currently CAM certified.

To sit for the CAM you must have Full Membership status with NCAHAM. The cost for the exam is $50.00/members, $75/non-members, payable prior to the exam. The next certification exam will be administered at the Educational Conference.

If you would like to sit for the exam, please contact our Certification Chairperson.
