SJRWMD offers continuing education credits to community association managers

PALATKA – Community association managers (CAM) are invited to earn free continuing education credits through the St. Johns River Water Management District’s certified training courses on water quality and water conservation best practices for communities. These credits meet the requirements for CAM licensure.

The new, state-certified continuing education program offers community association managers training on a variety of water resource protection topics, including stormwater management, water-conserving landscapes, smart irrigation, conservation easements and more.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, trainings are currently held via webinar. To schedule a session for your association’s management office or homeowners’ association, contact Dr. Jennifer Mitchell, district public communications coordinator, at or 904-730-6283.

The district was certified as a continuing education provider by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation in December 2019. The district’s goals for the program are improved permit compliance, enhanced water conservation, better understanding of district stormwater rules, and community relationship building.

Benefits of continuing education include professional development, money savings for the community, staying current on new permitting requirements and technologies, sharpening skills for better job or promotion opportunities, increasing understanding of Florida’s unique environment, personal improvement and the enjoyment of learning. Also, continuing education is a requirement of maintaining licensure.
