Steps to Becoming a Licensed CAM in Florida

STEP 1

Take and Pass a Pre-License Course

All candidates are required to complete 16 hours of online or classroom approved pre-licensing education.

 

In Florida, all required CAM license courses can be completed online with a state-approved school. The course certification is valid for one (1) years from the date of completion. 

STEP 2

Get Your Fingerprints Taken

Florida State requires electronic fingerprints be taken and criminal background checked before issuing a CAM License. Digital fingerprints can be taken at any authorized location across the U.S. Make an appointment online or contact IdentoGO at (800) 528-1358 for more information.  

 

You can search for an IdentoGO location by region or ZIP code here. The Originating Agency Identification (ORI) number to provide for CAM licenses is FL921932Z. If you have a criminal history, your application will be reviewed on its own merit to determine if the good moral character requirement has been met.

STEP 3

Submit Your Application

You must be at least 18 years of age, have a United States social security number and hold a high school diploma or its equivalent. You don't have to be a Florida resident to apply and obtain your CAM license.

Submit your application online or using a printable form to the Florida DBPR. It takes about 10 days to get your application approval. Once approved, you will receive an email notification and a candidate ID number (FLREAPP ID) in order to schedule your state exam.

STEP 4

Schedule and Pass the State Exam

After receiving your approval confirmation and candidate ID number (FLREAPP ID) by email, you can schedule your state exam. Florida uses Pearson VUE to manage and oversee their CAM license tests.

The exam is available daily at Pearson VUE test centers across United States. To register, call Pearson VUE at 888-204-6289 or visit their website.

You have 3 hours to answer 100 multiple-choice questions (a, b, c, d). The passing score is 75%. You can retake the Florida state exam as many times as you wish. You simply need to wait 24 hours to reschedule the examination.​ More information regarding the Florida CAM license examination is available in the candidate information booklet.
