EDUCATION AND ACCREDITATION
Education is a top priority at AMS. We exceed the industry standards for association management company accreditation. We encourage the continuing education of our employees and leadership team.
We are the ONLY management company holding the AAMC and AMO accreditations in both Washington and Oregon.
An AAMC designation represents a commitment to professionalism, education and excellence. It requires the senior manager to hold a PCAM designation, and at least 50% of managers to hold PCAM, AMS or CMCA credentials.
We are one of only a handful of HOA management companies in the Portland and Vancouver area that have attained the AMO accreditation from the Institute of Real Estate Management.
AMS joins 537 AMO firms worldwide that hold this distinguished accreditation.
Carmen Villarma holds the PCAM designation. This is the highest professional recognition available nationwide to managers who specialize in community association management. To achieve this accreditation, you must be an experienced manager who demonstrates advanced skills and knowledge to be recognized as one of the best and most experienced managers in the nation.
Many of our Association Business Managers have earned the following certifications from the Community Association Institute (CAI):
Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM)
Association Management Specialist (AMS)
Certified Manager of Community Associations (CMCA)
The CMCA certification recognizes individuals who have demonstrated the fundamental knowledge required to manage community associations.
More than half of our Association Business Managers have achieved this designation.
Many of our Association Business Managers have earned the Certified Association Management Professional (CAMP) Designation from OWCAM.
Managers with this designation must complete courses and testing, and complete continuing education to renew.
