CMCA® Examination Schedule and Locations

The CMCA Examination is offered in two formats, computer-based and pencil and paper. Each format has distinct dates and locations for testing. See below for specific locations.

Computer-based format

After January 1, 2013 candidates will have one year from the date their application is approved to sit for the CMCA examination and may test at any time within that one year period. The CMCA examination will be offered on an on-going basis at Pearson VUE testing facilities around the world.

To take the CMCA examination via computer, please sign up for the examination by checking Computer-Based Format on the CMCA application. To find the location nearest you, visit http://pearsonvue.com/cmca/ and select Locate a Test Center.

Pencil and paper format

The pencil/paper exam is offered three times a year: once during March and September in approximately 40 major U.S. cities, and on the Wednesday of CAI's National Conference.

See below for specific locations. Some locations may not be available for all exam administrations and CAMICB reserves the right to cancel a location due to low enrollment.
