Renewal FAQs

I am a CAMT credential holder and I received an invoice. What is it for?

This invoice is not for renewal of your CAMT credential. The CAMT credential is accredited by ANSI (now ANAB). The credential does not require renewal and is good for life. The invoice is for the Apartment Institute for Maintenance Excellence (AIME) program.  AIME is an optional membership program available only to CAMT credential holders. As a member of AIME, you will be acknowledged as a leader in the field of Apartment Maintenance with access to the most up-to-date information on industry regulations and other changing standards. You will also have the opportunity to take advantage of maintenance training designed specifically for CAMT credential holders.

What are the benefits to renewing my credential?

The full list of credential holder benefits can be found here.

I need a new certificate. How can I obtain one?

To obtain a new certificate, use this form. You may print out a certificate at any time through the BadgeCert link you received for your digital badge.

How should I proceed with renewal if I have been deployed in the military?

Have your dues and CECs waived by submitting a Military Deployment Waiver.

I am retired or have been in the industry for 25 years.  Do I need to submit CECs?

If you are retired and inactive in the apartment industry or if you have been employed in the rental housing industry for over 25 years and have maintained your credential for over 10 years, you may apply for Emeritus status. Credential holders with Emeritus status pay annual dues but are not required to submit CECs with renewal. Please click here to submit your resume to obtain Emeritus status. To receive a status update on your emeritus request, send an email to [email protected].

What happens if I don't renew my credential?

Credential holders who fail to submit renewal fees or sufficient CECs will become inactive in the NAA database and will be unable to use the credential acronym or receive other credential holder benefits. NAA will continue billing inactive credential holders for three years of inactivity. Credential holders have up to five years after becoming inactive to reinstate their credential (by submitting a $50 reinstatement fee, two years of CECs, and outstanding dues up to three years). After five years of inactivity, credential holders would be required to retake the course and exam.

I am behind on my renewal.  What do I do now?

You can still bring your credential into good standing! Credential holders who are late completing their credential renewal can reinstate by submitting a $50 reinstatement fee and then submitting all required dues payments and CECs.  If it has been more than one year, the credential holder should submit unpaid dues and continuing education for the years they did not submit as well as the $50 reinstatement fee.

Need CECs? You have a lot of online and in-class options!

Credential holders are charged for no more than three years of back dues and no more than two years of continuing education. Contact NAAEI for an invoice and update your contact information so you will receive all renewal email and mail reminders.

Can I renew by mail?

Please submit CECs online or via email to [email protected] Please do not mail CECs to the address below. To pay your renewal invoice by check, please mail only the printed invoice, and your payment to NAAEI:
