The National Apartment Association Education Institute (NAAEI) is the centralized administrator for all credential programs.

BAAA offers all of the required education and more for all credential renewals. See below on how to pull your CEC report from your BAAA member compass online. This can be submitted to email@example.com for proof of CECs.
CALP & CAS: 5 CEC, $50 renewal | CAPS & CAM: 8 CEC, $100 renewal | CAMT: lifetime credential with no CEC requirements or renewal fee.
